I thought it might be nice to point out that medical science does not consider a biological virus to be "alive" because it does not have any cells. So you're argument doesn't work.
Given your argument, Fire is alive.
It consumes fuel, it produces offspring (spreads/match-to-flame etc), and permanately changes what it consumes.
"Viruses infect people's (and animals) bodies, mutating them....
Well so does pc viriis. They infect a file or proggy and change settings and so...
Viruses can permanetaly affect someone (ie: chicken pocks)...
PC Viruses can permanetaly damage hardware...."
