A specific pattern of virus code \n. According to printon.edu, a virus is" a software program capable of reproducing itself and usually capable of causing great harm to files or other programs on the same computer; "a true virus cannot spread to another computer without human assistance""
IMVU itself does not deliver malware. Sending infected files via this medium may, and IMVU may open new vulnerabilities that allow the insertion of malware, but IMVU itself is not the problem. Other Comments: Some people have reported getting viruses from IMVU. Having a good anti-virus program ins…talled can prevent your computer from becoming infected. (MORE)
No, it doesn't unless you were trying to crack using a program which was downloaded from and internet and infected by hackers.
It really depends on what you use it with. If you use it on a browser [eg. Mozilla Firefox] and you are on a website that is not trusted then it is a possibility.
A computer program that is designed to replicate itself by copying itself into the other programs stored in a computer. It may be benign or have a negative effect, such as causing a program to operate incorrectly or corrupting a computer's memory. .
A virus is malicious code that the has the ability to replicate, execute and send to other user through a host. The host is the infected computer. Virus usually alter, change or delete files. Antivirus is software that finds, removes, cleans or denies access to a virus or the infected file. Antiviru…s software does the impossible. Most people have about 100,000 files on their computers. You would have to know a lot of code and you would have to look in every single file. Now some antivirus software is better than others. The best kinds of antivirus software is the type that not only looks for things it recognizes but it looks for virus like behavior. This very useful because lets say there is an undiscovered virus. But it acts like a virus that has already been detected. Well looking for virus like behavior increase the chance of discovering a new virus. Good antivirus software has a firewall. Detecting the infection before it reaches your computer is a great method of staying protected. (MORE)
A 'file' that creeps it way into your computer ( different ways ) and damages your files and computer.
Yes it does with all the pretty pictures. It is a virus.IT TAKES SO LONG TO SAVE IT.YES ITS A VIRUS. WARNING.
Not in my case.. For example, I've been playing Wizard101 in the same computer for about 4 years now, and my computer has always been free of malware/worms. However, things like wizard101 open a port through your firewall which in such, hackers could (COULD*****) 'hack' you.
Do you mean Hamachi? It's a tool to share network between friends, most commonly used for lan games like Warcraft3, Cs etc. It doesn't give you virus if you download it from the right page. https://secure.logmein.com/US/products/hamachi2/ download it from there and it will work fine. //William
It probably doesn't since Moshi Monsters is played by more than 30 million people world wide, so people would easily find out if you do get a virus. In addition: It is very unlikely that you would get a virus from playing the Moshi Monsters game since you play the game on the web site.
yes it does when i scaned my pc it came up as a virus so stay away
Facebook is a virus free social network, so of course yoville wont give you a virus.
Apparently this can happen with MMORPG games. They really have files that send information over the internet, which is a part of their normal behavior and is not meant to harm you in any way. But antiviruses detect them nevertheless.
Virus definition files contain information that allows an antivirus program to recognize files which contain a virus. Many simpler viruses can be detected by so-called "scan strings", which are essentially pieces of code found almost exclusively in a particular virus. Today, heuristic technology, wh…ich attempts to detect viruses without definitions, is also important. It operates by analyzing the structure of programs to detect if they may be harmful to a computer. (MORE)
Alot of people have thought this will give you a virus. Indeed it now shouldnt. The old domain had issues. Now it shouldnt give viruses.
that depends if you download it from a file sharing site like rapidshare or a site that many people dont recomend they yes but if you download it from a safe site then no
Toatally a big fat no. No download, no money cost, doesn't even harm your computer!
Megaupload is a website in which you can download almost anything anyone uploads for you to download. That being said, if the user wishes to upload a file with a Trojan virus or other malicious software, then yes the file will contain a virus. You can always run a virus scan of the file before downl…oading. (MORE)
Yes. It has some downloads to it that will give a virus to your computer.
Actually it does. I have a virus protection thing installed to my computer and it wont let me get on girlsense any more because it says girlsense has the Trojan virus. ^that really sucks. :/ i do online school and I've noticed that my classes are harder to get on after i go on girlsense, and i …got 38 viruses from it :/ (MORE)
I don't know. If it does you can take a photo of it and paste it in paint and send it to fps and have them look at it
Only if you had it plugged in and you downladed a file that contained a virus, and it somehow managed to get in. But if that happens, just use something like malwarebytes antimalware, and scan the drive you plugged it in at. This will remove any virus you have picked up.
There are 6 computers/lap tops in my house and all but 1 have Diablo II on them and none of them who have D2 (Diablo II) on them have a virus. So, I'd have to say: No.
Yeah, it has so many viruses, so at the end of the day I think we have to dance together ;)
I did the research and the "RSPS" indeed has a Trojan Horse virus.its just well hidden. i recommend steering away from that specificrsps
Definitely! My computer crashed so I took it to get fixed. The guy that fixed it said playlist is bad I had asked him because I had a hunch it was. So I told my son not to use it. He argued with me and said it was OK. Well my computer proceeded to crash 3 more times in 2 months. The last time it did… my son was directly on playlist. My computer has since been fixed and has not crashed since I told him to STAY OFF PLAYLIST OR ELSE! (MORE)
No, don't worry, it doesn't! I have done it loads of times, and no viruses came up, though i have heard rumers about viruses. dont worry though, neopets would NEVER make a virus!
No twitter can not give your computer a virus are you all stupid and i really love to masturbate who else
all games can give viruses because some nasty people put theam in games so if u se a advert with a game on it dont click just carry onn :)
Judging by personal experiance: No. I've been playing on it for a good few years and have never had a problem.
well you have to be careful about that I don't think so have the game on my Ipod and my computer for me its virus free but be careful and some websites thought.
It gave me one. The Antivirus Scan Virus. It was really freaking annoying to get rid of. All in all I would avoid that website.
well you see the thing is nothing of the computers is perfect when it come to downloading so it is a possibility you'll get a virus but i used it but it isn't that dangerous cos i used it for a while and did some checks and it didn't come up with any viruses so it's fine i guess but. the thng is it …is ILLEGAL to download stuff with it but who cares. hope i helped^_^ (MORE)
i used it and got Ike 200 trojans, but when i uninstalled it, it would be alright
It could be a file that someone sent you, a download, or a website. check your email to see if they are a virus
Yes 100% you will get a virus I played for a few days and I got a virus My computer wifi is ruined but we did get it fixed.
The photoshop.com domain is owned by Adobe, the makers of the Photoshop progam. It's rather unlikely, though not strictly speaking impossible, that you could get a virus from there. If you've gotten a "photoshop.com" file from somewhere, I would be extremely suspicious of it, and wouldn't at all …be surprised if it contains viruses or is a Trojan horse designed to do nasty things to your computer.

Norton Safe Web found no issues with this site. It is located in the USA. Please see the link below: ^ Na thats wrong. Cheatcc downloads malware in to your computer which wont be detected even by norton until you open a browser and you're automatically redirected to something called guman.co.cc …and then you run a scan to remove it. plus.. stop cheating at video games.. -_- (MORE)
Guffins gives you a virus from the time you download and shut down your laptop or computer. DO NOT DOWNLOAD Guffins, no matter how fun it is!
Me and my friend reckon that it is a rat, although it probably isn't he reformatted just in case i really don't think it has one but who knows..
You have to be careful when online, because almost any site can give you a virus if you don't have the right protection. Some sites might get attacked by a virus without knowing it, and then the virus spreads to whoever visits the site, but most sites have virus protection.
"If you play Minecraft on "In Browser" mode on Minecraft.net or ifyou Download from Minecraft.net you will not get a virus! If youPlay/Download the game from anywhere else there is a 99.9% chanceyou WILL get a virus and a 0.1% chance you won't get a virus!
OMG! Why would Club Penguin give viruses? Man CP is the best! Nothing has a virus at all! Believe me EvilTomboy99! I will give you answers that r true 4 everything! But there are honestly no viruses. Would I be typing this right now??
Actually, this game doesn't infect your computer. However, it is an open port that can give you a virus. Some advertisements contain malware. And being that you have installed and allowed the application 'RobloxApp.exe', the malware, spyware, or virus will attach to your computer. If you're talking …about the interactive place games, yes. The place games, where you build your own game, has viruses. But, these types of viruses are easy to remove! (MORE)
ROBLOX won't give you a virus when you download it, anyone or anythign that says it does is wrong. ROBLOX has been downloaded for at least 2 years on my computer and nothing bad happend.
If you download it from anywhere but the minecraft website, it may be one. However, minecraft itself is not a virus; it's a game.
