Do Not Download Imesh....It's A Virus

Updated on August 15, 2011

Imesh Contains Virus'

Imesh is the latest file sharing download craze. I can assure you that it is everything but safe. I am currently reaping the havoc of downloading this awful program. It has attacked my search engines and instead of browsing the professional search engines it redirects just as it pleases. I don't know how much harm it has caused to my hard drive as of yet but, I do know that I can not access my blackboard for my online master's class. This is the craziest thing ever, and to be frank with you I am spreading the word . DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT DOWNLOAD IMESH. This program is on the unsafe site lists, and some computer will not most security programs computer's will warn u about this unsafe program. If you have children who love to download the latest music you may want to add this to your blocked sites lists. Downloading Imesh could potentially ruin your computer alltogether because it is a file sharing program the virus is easily spread.This removal process is very difficult as it keeps reattaching itself, and I can't seem to get it out of my search engine. I am researching currently the ways to delete it. I hope that it's not to costly because it's too close to the holidays for this crap. If you have psp or ipods, or media devices the safest effort is to take the scenic route and pay the 99. cent download fee from itunes, to insure that you won't messup a costly device, trying to get a free download. I know I've learned my lesson. I am up early this morning and I can do everything but the most important thing right now, and that is to submit my homework assignment to my teacher. I will update this I find out how to delete this mess of a program. The web address just incase you were wondering is www. imesh.com

      Wow! Hate that this happened to you. Hopefully you'll get everything working correctly again. Thanks for the warning. The www is getting more and more scary when it comes to the viruses and malware out there. Investing in a good virus protection program doesn't seem so bad after all. $$ for a good program or lose 200GB of information?

      Once some web service becomes popular, there inevitably will appear all kinds of criminal crap to make profitable use of it. Facebook is a big hit? Viruses are spreading through it. PayPal is a worldwide payment system? Phishing emails are spamming email accounts.

      thank goodness I ran into this, because I installed MSE recently. Before I installed though, I was using iMesh for almost all of my free songs, but when I installed MSE it kept stopping downloads because it kept finding viruses in it... so i uninstalled iMesh
