Malware, Trojans and virii OH MY!!! But seriously, I think we may need to
establish a parameter here to avoid mixing of virii with other types of
non-viral malware.

Computer virus - a self-replicating program that can transmit itself from
computer to computer. 
Other non-viral Malware - spyware, Trojans basically and program written
with malicious intent that does not self-replicate. 

Or are we talking about malware in general?
