P.C. Resurrected

Howdy- Just have to say that if I ever disappear from here, it'd probably be due to some damn virus. Our neighbour resurrected us, today. 4 hours non-stop ( FREE) professional experience to set us aright! I am not trying to cast aspersions, but I was at Deviant Art and a pop-up came THREAT, and thereafter was plagued with the usual virus non-sense, pop-ups, offers for security, invitations to skin sites- all sorts of crap, and I was so upset. I suspect that if it happens again, that I will literally throw this machine out the window- so look out below!
Frank saved files, programs, to back-up, formatted harddrive, and then reconstituted the pc.
Nightmare theater!
Has anyone here ever heard of people getting a virus fro Deviant Art?

I've never heard of it, no, but I suppose it's possible.

Thanks everyone. Welcome to you, RFK48! I do hope you find something here, or much here, that you like. They, we, seem to be a reasonable lot!
I have the AVG program that Quicksdraw mentioned. I had a WARNING pop-up immediately when I was on that 'other' site, but I was down the garden path already. That virus ( its type, at least) has been out since 2002, a nd no one! has been able to make a patch/cure for it. It is called , amongst other things, "Backdoor.Flood" . Everywhere I went, everything I did was interrupted by an invitation for ppc protection, or the best porno site in the world, etc. I becoem ill when this happens, and, but for our qualified friend, I couldn't even show up to say " I am not here because..." Frank put our files into a back up, formatted the harddrive, and we ( He) put it together all over again!
Life is too short for that, and the next time it goes out the window: a true compute crash!

Like someone said, I would definitely take the time to download Spybot Search and Destroy (there is a free version available online ie. download.com). I would also download Ad-Aware which also helps a lot on getting rid of tracking cookies.

In the long run, I'd strongly suggest purchasing a subsciption of a major virus protection program like Norton if you're using the internet often (especially if you're searching through forums frequently). Its very easy to throw in a trojan or virus in a thread and get people to click them.

Trent Micro is great as wel and free! They scan your pc and remove everything they find after they list it for you.

Thanks to you Shawn and Viking and everyone-I just ain't gonna go there no more! y avg has worked adequatelly for a couple of years, and then I went to that 'place'. There's a feel there that is kind of cool ( as in not warm). I don't need it. Frank says to keep enjoying the computere, that I have a computer tecch for a neighbour ( him) but I don't like what happens to me when I a virus comes, so I will just go by what Frank says. he uses Nortons... I am still recovering. Those virus makers better hope that Karma doesn't exist...
