it's not a virus

from here

the misuse of the term computer virus is rampant, and it's especially noticeable these days when actual viruses are rare. if you got hit by malware, there's a much better chance it was something non-viral, like a keylogger or a banking trojan. moreover, if you've got a computer problem in general, chances are good it's not even malware related (nevermind being virus related).

(inspired by the character gregory house's frequent insistence that "it's not lupus")
