Windows 7: Most Viruses ever seen?

22 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 2000 5.0 Build 2195

The most I've seen was 7 years ago- 100 unique viruses. Now that I've think of it, maybe we should all go crazy and open up a fresh VM, visit a porn site, and click like CRAAAAZYYY! XD

Let's see who gets the most!

This is pure kiddingness, of course.

A year and a half ago (when I was taking my A+ course) we ran an in class computer repair / low-end used computer shop and I ran a virus scan on a computer that had around 53,000 viruses before I decided to just stop it and format the drive. Crazy stuff.

Windows 7

Fixed a coworker's PC. He had a teenage daughter who installed EVERYTHING that popped up on the web. and she had friends who obviously helped. Found 21,000+ instances of malware including bad cookies. had to find 2,000, stop scan, delete, repeat to keep from crashing it.

Win7 Home Premium 64x

These seem real high. i usually dont count cookies and when I first saw this thread I was thinking. I have seen about 15 on one computer. but there were over 300-400 files affected. I have cleaned up over 3Gigs of HD space from Malware, but the most actual unique viruses (virii?) was about 15.

As for the Bit-Defender one. wow that sucks.

Can you get viruses using Webmail?
Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to get viruses just by opening an email in webmail (such as Yahoo Mail or GMail), or if you would have to download the attachments. I was under the impression that if there were any viruses in your webmail account, they couldn't harm your computer unless...
