Just so all of you know, there is absolutely no way for a virus, trojan or worm to physically damage your computer. The closest they can come to is making it look like you have a hardware problem.

Xenomorph, didn't you hear about this CIH95 virus? That one did cause some physical damage.

Eh? Where do you find info on that? And how does it damage stuff phycially? I find that very hard to believe, given that niether Symantec nor McAfee have heard of that virus.

There are viruses that have the ability to overclock the processer or fsb or somthing like that, causing your hardware to go fubar and probably damaging it. But there not common these days and only work if you have a certain motherboard.... or so i beleve anyway.

But if you do get an e-mail like that, disregard it, and check out http://securityresponse.symantec.com/ for the latest virus information.

The one that says it blows up your hard drive? I read that one and started thinking "Since when did they start placing plastique into hard drives?"
