A phantom sleeper virus installed on every single PC when it is made. Exactly 2 years after you activate your new PC, the Ghost in the Machine awakens and takes over, slowly destroying it until it no longer turns on.

Symptoms of a Ghost in the Machine include: flickering, forgetfulness, random restarts, a frozen screen comorbid with a persistent hourglass, and random deletion of important files. You may also encounter multiple "errors" and be asked to solve problems you don't know how to solve. Customer support usually pleads ignorance when you call their 1-800 number.
Teacher: "Where is your homework?"
Student: "The Ghost in the Machine spooked it and I can't find it now."

When software or hardware is made to complete a specific function, but a small percentage of the tasks completed have an unexpected result which cannot be explained.
I launched the game a million times through that shortcut, but this time it didn't launch for some reason... must be a ghost in the machine.
