    Viruses

    Are they considered living?

    (Btw, I did google it, it said yes and no, so what is your opinion?)

    Personally from the knowledge that I know, I would call them living.

    I didn't Google search it, its just based on what I've been taught so far. My interpretations at least.

    They are living. They live off information on your computer.

    You're specifically thinking of the mitochondria, but that has a form of encapsulation which is considered living material, even at a basic sub-standard level. Virus's don't thrive from the same situational constructs as multi-cells organisms as wel have different cells with different jobs all to keep one big human alive. Virus's only need to worry about having one small job beig a single felled organism, so many like to say it is not, bit the facts are that it is still a living organism on its own.

    does it need a nucleus to be considered a living organism?

    No they are not alive. They do not have all 7 characteristics of life. They are complex pieces of organic machinery that mimic life when they hijack an organism's cellular machinery in order to replicate.
