This fear usually originates from users that have shared computers. A typical example is where the mother 'accidently' throws a brick through the monitor of the screen and blames it on a mysterious virus. A user will develop a fear of a potential virus and spend hundreds of dollars in protecting there computers from this. Ironically virus protection is downloaded so people that have this fear will develop downloadaphobia to an extremity and download nothing.
Most people suffer downloadaphobia to a certain degree.
People that may suffer from downloadaphobia tend to be half french and called Charlotte.
