They don´t make virus´ like they used to. Back in the early 90s/late 80s, viruses were still annoying as hell but with a &quot;more interesting&quot; twist. They showed the personality of the coder rather than just being plain vindictive/evil. I think my favourite was the one with the pacman that ate everything on the screen, that was a corker. He just would go from left to right, up and down the screen eating everything into a black nothingness. A restart cured it temporarily.

The funniest virus i have ever experienced, wasnt actually on MY computer (thankfully) it was on someone else´s. It was the virus that caused the icons to move out of the way whenever you put the cursor over them (pretty damn funny at the time, i didnt know it was a virus until relatively recently). i kept having to select the icons using the keyboard arrow keys.

Virus´s now there´s a sorry subject. Since I build, repair and upgrade computers for a living I´ve seen my fair share. Some of the accounts I have we have made it mandatory that they have their laptops checked for virus´s before they can connect to the network. The worst case I´ve seen is the local college with students returning for the new school year it is mandatory they have their computers checked for virus´s. This year wasn´t as bad as last year when 50% of the computers had some sort of virus. It amazes me how many people don´t even bother to install at least a free anti virus program. When they loose all their data that´s when it really sinks in.

i had one of kazza yrs ago, dont know what it was called but it was a bugger to get rid of, it kept filling my hd up with dodgy sounding files (porn, hacks, keygens,cracks etc), all dead small, but reproduced quicker than a rabit on viagra, as fast as i deleted em, there was twice as many back... as i recall i fixed it with the ´ol fav´ format C: virus writer suck, tho i remember writing a program that sat in the reset vector (memory resident) on the ST, but mine never reproduced, just displayed a menu scroller <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> and could be removed by doing a cold boot.. <A href=´http://www.kokrull.com´ Target=_Blank>www.kokrull.com</a> home of ** uk server **

*Reads Indy´s comment about Wolfy* Burn! <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Grom - The &quot;Bouncing Ball&quot; virus was a program that, once it infected a computer, would display a &quot;ball&quot; which &quot;bounced&quot; off the sides of the screen. It was quite amusing actually <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>. And then there were classics like the &quot;Stoned&quot; virus. Ah, the good old days... <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

lol. sounds familiar. 2 of my other favourites were : &quot;arsecake&quot; - this was an MS Word virus, when you saved your word doc it changed every third word beginning with A into the word &quot;arsecake&quot;. Highly amusing when turning in university papers <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> &quot;run away&quot; - this was one that I saw on windows 3.1, every so often it would choose one of your windows at random...then when you approach the window with your cursor, it would dart to the other side of the screen and start shaking in the corner. It was accompanied by a badly sampled version of the Monty Python crew shouting &quot;RUN AWAY!!&quot; fantastic. aaah the good ole days <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

there was one on the ´ol atari st that whenever you clicked your mouse it would start a 1x1 pixel going around the screen eating whatever was under neath it to a black line, (best discription i can come up with is like a etch ´o´ sketch) it also wouldent let you click anything to close anything, (more black dots going around the screen) but as with most ST things a cold boot would fix it.

the only virus that ever got me was in 1994 and it was the *cansu* boot-sector virus, which necessitated repartition and reformat, as my then AV, Norman, failed miserably to catch it. Although since then I´ve had a lot of virus alerts, I´ve never actually had another viro on machine of my own, although I was for some years in my last job *Tawakalna the Fearless Virus Hunter* beingh the only person in the IT dept who could actually get rid of a virus without wiping the hard-drive everytime.

I could easielly make a virus. I never have been infected with one, myself though. Some of those are hilarious though. Maybe i should make one that fills up your hard drive while constantly screaming &quot;FREELANCER R0XX0RZ!&quot; Too bad it fills up your hard drive by copying and running itself over and over and over. Think bacteria. you´d end up with over 10000 virus programs running on your comp ^^ Muahahahahaha. Course, i´d have to be really, really freaking bored to make a virus like that <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>
