    well, repost your stuff how often you want. you've read our replies, you know we don't care about your re-statement on how true you are. post your 2000-symantec link, post your singlestory about one possibly infected system, that never got proven to be that way, post the typical panik-hype of tomshw that loves to spread known wrong stuff just for clicks..

    etc..

    well, or, you could get a life, notice that, in your normal life, you won't ever get a virus that kills your hdd (which was what you originally stated, and now drifted over to bios viruses), and realise that, in reality, we're right stating "it won't happen".

    You are missing my point totally. The only point I was making was that there could be virus out there that kills hardware. Or people could be working on one. I am not trying to changes anyones mind. There are plently of reports around the forums of Bios virus so why not a general hardware destroyer. Such as overvolting or firmware. It is not intended to scare. It is just a fact that there could be.

    Thank you and I concede also.

    It was never about being right. It was only a 16 word post on my view after reading imformative websites. After writing 16 words there was a massive pile on. I thought that was the aim of the forum. To post views and help people. There was no need for some of the things that were said to me on this topic. That is why I defended my views. :)

    I think this topic has been beat to death so it is now closed.
