Just had a virus/malware problem with my laptop.
Posted about it in the Virus/Malware board and they were able to help me with it.

Here's a link to that board
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic411207.html

My question is:
Is it possible that the virus/malware destroyed my battery?
When I try to plug it in to charge, it doesn't seem to accept the charge.

Thanks in advance.

Highly unlikely,I'd say. More like an unfortunate coincidence.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

That's what I thought.
A very UNFORTUNATE coincidence.

Thanks for replying.

Actually....the idea isn't very far-fetched: http://gizmodo.com/5823997/macbook-batteries-are-totally-hackable-wait-what
