    The closest thing to a getting a virus I've experienced was spending a bit too long on the adfly link for downloading some shaders for minecraft. Thanks, universal bypass.

    i got a adware virus from some wierd .APK file i had downloaded on my samsung galaxy a6. It appeared like inside apps and popping up on the screen. I needed to factory reset the phone since even though i deleted the APK it was still active. It worked after as normal.
    PS: Sorry for buffering this thread

    W32.Blaster.Worm on my dad's old computer.
    My dad's computer was still running WinXP at that time.
    The computer restarted over and over again until my dad called his friend there.They cleaned the virus and installed a Win7 in it.That old computer is still running now.

    My old Samsung Galaxy S4 used to have the same virus.

    I once got this anysearch thing on a mac, I would erase it and it would come back every so often. I now have a laptop, nothing so far on it.

    I've only gotten 1 virus, it was something that deleted the boot registry so windows couldn't start up.

    Yeah McAfee lied to me, they said they blocked 480 threats in the last minute, (because my copy of Windows came with McAfee, and the trial expired), but everyday it always says that with 480! I don't even like McAfee.
