Messenger Plus! is a virus?

aVAST DETECTED FILE REP MALWARE

No, it isn’t a virus. It detects it like a virus because of its ad engine, which by the way, does not work anymore.

:thinking:

So download it with no fears in your heart.

The antivirus detected the Messenger Plus! due to its “sponsor”, which is a toolbar, recognized by security solutions like Adware. Pause your Avast, install Messenger Plus! with the option to install the toolbar disabled and activate Avast again.
