Computer Virus

Microsoft Windows are always infected.
My laptop is always in need of a fix,
some hacker's always creating a virus,
playing their ugly Yahoo-ish tricks.

Microsoft Windows are always infected.
The hacker's new virus has ruined my phone.
I'm sure it's a matter of time till I see
that my oven and TV are not left alone.

Microsoft Windows are always infected.
Don't hackers have anything better to do?
Their mischief has cost us a few billion dollars.
I wish them a case of the avian flu.
