I haven't had a virus either -- that I know of, which is an important 
distinction -- but I'm spooked by the number of people who have. The 
numbers are astonishingly high. Reports like this makes me very 
uncomfortable:

"Across the globe, the average number of PCs hit by malware now stands 
around 59 percent, an all-time high for the year. Among 29 countries 
tracked, the U.S. ranked ninth with slightly more than 58 percent of its 
PCs infected. Taiwan hit first place with an infection ratio of 69 
percent, while Norway came in lowest with only 39 percent of its PCs 
attacked by malware."
