When you get a cold, each tiny virus infiltrates the wall of an unlucky cell, sheds its outer coating, and travels along the cell's inner scaffolding to the nucleus. Once there, surrounded by the cell's DNA-replicating machinery, the virus releases its DNA. With the cold virus, it rarely damages your own DNA, but it commandeers the nearby molecular factories to churn out more copies of itself. Eventually, the newly manufactured machines burst out of the cell, destroying it.
For the common cold virus, more formally known as adenovirus, it's a brutal process that evolved alongside human evolution over the course of millions of years.
