I know a few virus scanners that say that IMVU is a virus, but it still doesn't make it so.

I have been on IMVU a couple years and never had any issues with IMVU making my computer not work.

If you are having issues with IMVU not loading correctly, there are a few thing s that you can do.

1. Try reinstalling the client
2. Check out the bugs and issues forum

And if your computer isn't working, why are you still logged into the client?

Lets stop and think about this for a moment now. IMVU is a business, their client (although is very well used for free entertainment as well) is used to make them money. Do you honestly think that they will allow a virus on their client to stop people from spending money? No. Also just a little common knowledge for the future with computers.. you cannot simply blame the last thing you downloaded as being the source of a virus, a virus does not need your permission to download itself, and it doesnt need to tell you either. You could have gotten your virus just from browing the wrong website. Its not IMVU's fault.

IMVU has no virus , if imvu has a virus then a lot of ppl will say that but seems like you're the only one who is saying that.

The only way you could get a virus is that while you were downloading the client, something used the gap in your network as a welcome mat and downloaded itself while you opened your security for the client download.

That is why you don't click the extra stuff IMVU has you try and download and install. There could be corrupted data from the google chrome download or the affiliated stuff with it.

Just like you run that risk with the third party stuff for the free credits.

You can get a virus from any downloadable thing because a virus program loves the hole you open when you allow something through your security.

There is no virus in IMVU. I've had a version of IMVU on my PCs for 5 yrs now.

You may think it's a virus because it may not have downloaded correctly and your anti virus thought it was a virus but it was only an error?

> Anyway, it isn't a virus. I agree with one of the replies.. IMVU wouldn't let a virus onto their client. either that or they would let us know so we could uninstall it in time.

^^THIS^^ is the most likely answer.

Try download IMVU from the direct link. Make sure and Uncheck all the extra JUNK. This the Extra Toolbar and Mal-ware have caused havoc on my computers. UNCHECK THE JUNK !!!!

Download here: http://www.imvu.com/download.php

I don't know whether imvu is a virus but I keep getting where it just deletes itself on my computer and then I have to reinstalling and when I try and log on it will keep crashing and I have no clue why it keeps doing that does anyone have the same trouble or is it just me? And if so does anyone know how I can fix this problem? Thanks in advance if you know.

The OP only said that her computer won't work without any additional details or any reason why she thought it was a virus. On the data she has provided there are only about 10 jillion other things it could be besides a virus.

Without more data speculation is pointless.

IMVU is not a virus and does not contain a virus.
If it did contain a virus, Norton, and Kaspersky and all the other antivirus programs would know about it. It shows clear on all.
