Because the same people who eradicate viruses create them. In most cases these people are geniuses who know and understand computers better than most people. They feel power waiting for someone to break their code and clean up the computer virus.
Those who write viruses do so either for peer credit, getting a job, or they spite a group of people, organization, or country. Those reasons also apply for hackers as well. They can't totally get rid of viruses for the same reason they can't get rid of crime.
Unfortunately this won't change in the near foreseeable future. For one reason, many virus developers write viruses to solely attack organizations that don't align with their idealism. e.g. Microsoft. The recent Stuxnet worm that uses a security flaw in Windows .Ink files, mostly targeted Iranian computers when it first appeared.
Virus developers also build their viruses to show off to their friends to see who can write the most damaging virus or get the most publicity. It's also true that some may even use their "virus development experience" to try and obtain a job. Although I doubt they'll publicly confess to any specifics.

Why can't I relate to people anymore?I've noticed that not only can I not relate to people younger than me, but I can't relate to people my own age. I can, to a point, relate to people older than me, but in most cases... I still feel like I don't fit in anywhere. I'm only 23 years old and can't...

Why can't God and evolution coexist?I am curious about the division between the concept of evolution and the religious mind... why can't God and evolution coexist? What are the rules that define the scientific process of evolution? Can those rules be applied towards religious belief?
