Windows 7 Ultimate x64

And guess what? People with working immune systems get colds too!

It's about that simple, IMHO, viruses are viruses, no matter if your talking organic or machine, just what they target is different, and the way to get rid of them once they're there. As far as it goes, there's no cure-all for viruses, at least till Intel's mythical "Hardware cure for all viruses" that they announced last week actually becomes a reality.
