SETI@home is the first thing that arose in my head. Sounded dubious - Search
Engine at Home and Peer to Peer Search Engine...

Speaking of SETI@home, here is an analogy I made up a few days ago and
tossed in a text file:

Running anti-virus/spyware/malware is much like running SETI@home, thus
seeking extra terrestrial life. It only drains your CPU in vain. If your
operating system is sufficiently flawed and requires add-on protection,
consider alternatives.
