Cheat Engine is not a virus, its detected as a virus because it can attach itself to processes and modify memory.
this is needed to be able to change the value in game to get infinite health, ammo etc.
Then it should be blocked anyway IMO. Why cheat at games? If you can't play them properly then don't play them at all

Fair enough. I hope the OP installs the cheat engine and gives him malware.

Other than for bragging rights, for the life of me I can't understand why anyone would want to cheat in a computer game, but that's just this little old lady's opinion. I don't claim to understand some of the things the younger generation does these days. If one has to cheat to win, is he/she really the winner in their own mind? What sense of accomplishment in their own skills can they get out of it? Beats the heck out of me.

Cheat engines help you cheat and anti-cheat does the opposite.

For those wondering why you want to install a cheat client? To be honest, so many people do it these days, for some games, you have to install a cheat client to be on a level-playing field and it is very fun for a short time playing with one them. I very rarely play games these days though.

Honestly people need to learn before they type xD, A trainer or a cheat engine( Some are online most are offline) is to unlock the dev contols within an offline(Usually) environment, Eg the test tools that dev have, Both making the game harder and also easier, Depending on what you want. Im not a personal user of these things, I like the games made by devs and leave it at that, I do however mod games, Which is different altogether, I would also say that cheating online is a different ballgame and would thus implore you to leave it alone and not ruin it or anyone else. Offline, Do what you want, Most things like this are called trainers, Which are entirely legal. Cheat engines, Depending on the nature, Can be both legal and illegal depending on what each entails. People be tripping man.
Personally wouldn't install this one but to say that all trainers and cheat engines are illegal or wrong...is simply wrong.
