Default Your Favorite Windows Virus

An odd question but what is your favorite Windows Virus if you had to choose one.

Codenamed the idiot virus (My memory fails me for the real name). Displays this message periodically. Don't worry the link I've given is just a flash file taken from the virus the virus is not present.

Nopir-B
A virus that further attempts to shut down piracy by deleting all MP3 files found. Can get infected by using P2P networks. I'd like to think of it as the RIAA written virus.

I always liked the ones that used cmd to delete the c:/ drive and all its trees form there, thatd just suck to get that.

I don't know if anyone here "collects" them but we do have our own favorites. If you insist on collecting them at least archive them with winrar if possible.
