That's actually what got me interested in programming, the girl I wanted to stalk had a good antivirus

Of course it did, but it was detected by almost all anti-viruses so you had to use obscure binding tools to get past them and it was pretty hard to accomplish.

I suddenly got way more interested in programming than stalking people, so no. She ended up becoming a skyblog whore anyway.
The only people I infected were classmates, I fucked with them a bit by playing audio files and opening/closing the CD-Rom drives a bunch of times and then pussied out and deleted the server.
