Effects of Viruses on Hard Drive

What effects of Viruses on Hard Drive of a computer?

That will completely depend on what virus you picked up....think of the human body, depend on what illness you pickup will depend how sick you get.

So anywhere from some adware to all your data being stolen to your hard drive data being destroyed.
Depends on the virus. Some viruses attack the data, others attack the boot files. Your data may or may not get corrupted depending upon the virus.
The virus eats your hard drive's metal, causing the hard drive to seize and explode, destroying an entire city block. So for the love of god! Keep your anti-virus up to date!
