Anyone naive enough to download/execute binaries from an untrusted source deserves to get hit with a virus...

I use BT all day long and never have a problem, but all I deal with are data files...

The same thing can be said about websites. The problem exists on any program where you can download binaries.

There should be a license required for using the internet, just so we can revoke it for people who run binaries downloaded from p2p networks.

Exclamation Adware/Spyware

Adware and spyware are big problems for any single home system. It is a huge problem for corporate networks. No matter how good the scanning software is, they get through. I know, by trade. I have had to clean off more than one hard drive at work because it was scrambled with this junk.
