Harry contains bugs and frequently crashes the infected machine.

Anxiety.Poppy.II by VicodinES...feel the pain, mine not yours!
        all alone and I don't understand
        a cry for help and no one answers
        will I last for more than a week
        will I taste the gunpowder
        can I end it all and make it easy
        is it sick to ask
        is it safe to cry
        will I be gone soon
        will I last
        will you care
        will I?
        --
        if you don't hear from me in a while -
        say a prayer for me because I have left, never to return.
        --
        peaceful goodnight, hopefully...
        Vic

The Anxiety viruses are known to be in the wild. They do nothing significant in addition to replicating.
