I was thinking for droids (I am a star wars fan) of trying to build a deployable computer anti-droid virus...
So...
May be make the natural occurrence in the population 0...
But make the droids the 'exception' populace and make it lethal for them...

Any thoughts on this...?

It could work in a mod with a single mechanical race (i.e. droids). You will actually need to modify every other virus however so that the droids aren't affected by organic viruses (otherwise it would be a bit silly). If you have more than one mechanical race or an organic virus that affects a different (non-droid) race in a unique way however, it won't work so well. I usually just make mechanical races immune to plagues, which isn't an option if you want computer viruses.

That's the theory anyway, you'd have to test it in practice. But with a single droid race you could in theory have a number of organic and computer viruses running concurrently.
