Many times, especially when I was younger and loved to click on *ahem* seemingly adult websites. If the link or email had the promise of boobs, I'd click it no questions asked.

Caused me some minor & major problems, so I don't know exactly which option I'd pick on this poll. I remember things like my browser would always connect me to another site no matter what I typed in the address bar, right up to experiencing the blue screen as soon as I switch on the PC.

Absolutely, though it's been a while since I had one that caused actual trouble. The last time I got one in, reinstalling somone's Office in a hurry and not doublechecking what site I had ended up on instead of the Microsoft one I intended, I fixed it on the spot and all the damage done was I got home late that night.

Yeah; my virus scans have found infections on occasion. But I've never had an infection cause noticeable problems since the late 90's.

I don't like the "I don't think so", so I'm not voting.

My computer has never had a virus, and I know so.

That does seem like an odd omission of poll options.

No.

I think I've had some files on my computer before that got flagged as malware but they were harmless in the end. So never had any issues.

Last time I had a virus was years ago on my old Vista laptop.
