Wow, now I can remember PeCIH virus destroying all of my Windows system executables and disk MBR ... that was a real pain in the ass! I can't think of any other virus that would be so vicious and infective. It lasted disk format, so yeah - that was definitely one of the worst crap that ever invaded my machines. That was early 1998 IIRC.
