A Conversation for Computer Viruses

Boot viruses don't only come on floppy disks, they're quite at home on hard disks as well.

Viruses are at home anywhere, but floppy disks are the most common means of transmitting them. Most companies that produce CD-ROMs or DVDs go out of their way to ensure that the disks are virus free. I have never heard of a hard drive being sold with a virus already on it, but anything is possible!

That's because most hard-disks are sold unformatted.
Floppy's used to be the most common but email and downloading files are almost undoubtedly now the most common
