Virus [Request] Viruses and Generic Diseases list

For some reason, I tend to get questions asking about the viral etiology of generic diseases wrong.

What I'm looking for is a list for such viruses: Virus name, family, characteristics (DNA/RNA/Enveloped/..etc), and its corresponding disease.

I know viruses are too numerous, but I'm just requesting those responsible for being the most common etiology of certain generic diseases. e.g. Rotavirus and fatal diarrhea in infants. Adenovirus and hemorrhagic cystitis,...etc.

Viruses like EBV, Parvovirus B19 are easy to guess because they cause specific diseases.

Could somebody kindly write down a list for us confused people ??

I'd appreciate it.
