Windows Destruction is a series of streams created by Joel, in which he destroys Windows (and sometimes other) computers (Virtual Machines in actuality) by downloading all kinds of viruses and malware onto them (includes some gameplay of WildTangent OEM games), and generally dicking around until the system can no longer boot. The series gets a lot of attention on Joel's channel, and he even posts the full streams of Windows Destruction on his Full Stream YouTube channel.
