I had a virus a while back that infected both of my internal HD's and my external one too. After I got rid of it, my OCD flared up. Now here are my concerns:[/size]

1.Can a virus hide an executable or duplicate itself into your Memory/Ram once your computer becomes infected? If so is it possible for the virus to come out of hiding and re-infect your computer?[/size]

2.Can having a virus PERMANENTLY damage memory Ram?[/size]

3.Can a virus make a hard drive unusable or back itself up in your HD and re-infect your computer even after using an anti-virus and getting rid of the virus?[/size]

4.Can a virus possibly attach itself to cds or media and run (not hard drives but just discs of any kind) when you use them while infected?[/size]

5.Can a virus ruin a GPU?[/size]

So, some of these might sound dumb or naive but I assure you they come from true misunderstanding of how viruses work and move coupled with OCD. I would really like to just have confirmation and knowledge to put these worries to rest since OCD takes a lot of unnecessary time to quench. Thank you in advance for any helpful responses.[/size]
