Know the Top 5 Deadliest Computer Viruses

Since my new 3-week old ASUS notebook simply died with no apparent cause, I began searching for possible reasons why a computer can crash down. My ASUS however doesn't qualify that a virus has attacked it but I want to share these information with you through Cnet.com video released this April 2009.

They rated the following as the top 5 deadliest computer viruses:

Rank 1. ILOVEYOU
Rank 2. SLAMMER
Rank 3. STORM WORM
Rank 4. BAGEL AND NETSKY
Rank 5. NIMDA

Always another virus popping up. Thanks for visiting Grampys place. We have a wonderful Library here. We are so lucky.

Hello Grampy!

Viruses, virtual or not, are simply everywhere. The libraries in the Third World countries are never a pride to us. Lucky for you and your kids you have nice libraries to visit.

that is not good. My PC did that also. i am in the process of trying to fix it. till then i use my laptop o well. People have nothing better to do than make things that mess peoples lives up.

That is pretty true Bill. Our computers at school simply cant be cleaned up so reformatting should be done most of the time and this is not all good too. Some people simply dont have any more worthwhile to do than pester others.
