CU OK Masking Tape Pieces

Today’s freebie is a set of 23 pieces of masking tape that I scanned and extracted, saved in individual .pngs.

On another note, I had received a couple of emails about issues with 4shared and a virus that is going around there. I hadn’t had a problem with it until tonight when I was checking some links and there was a popup saying that my computer was infected and wanted me to “scan” for viruses. Then another popup that looked exactly like an official Windows notice that my computer may be infected. When I clicked the red X (of course I didn’t want to scan my computer, I have McAfee Antivirus, thank you) the window asked if I was sure? Yep, sure! I closed the popups and scanned with McAfee to be sure and yes I am virus free. Shame on 4shared for allowing such stupid popup ads (scams). So I’m wondering if those who clicked on the button to “scan” did receive a virus or if they thought they had a virus because of the popup. Needless to say, please, please, please don’t fall for the popup ads. If you have a good antivirus program it will catch any “bugs” you might get while surfing and downloading. Scan regularly and make sure your antivirus is up to date! Also, BACKUP your stuffs! I have heard great things about Mozy but haven’t actually tried them. I have an external hard drive that I save all my important files to and sync it regularly. Anyway, here’s the freebie preview and DL links.

Hi.

Thanks again for your great work. I had to add that I love Mozy. I just feel safer having it back-up my different computers. I have way too many external drives filled up and at other locations, etc. I jsut love the feeling that everything is also on Mozy, just in case tere is a fire or something like that.

So I shared a file in 4 shared with friend. They got the trojan horse!!!
Now he has to take it to the pros to fix it. This virus blocks you frm removing it and allows hackers in your computer!!!

I downloaded from 4shared for the past couple of days and had that same 'virus' junk come up. I knew it was bs, but the way that they try to scare you into installing the 'virus scan software' is very sneaky! I hate getting spammed and it has happened on 4shared for the past 3 days. I noticed it only happened when I used IE and not when I used Firefox.

Thanks, great job. Heard a lot about Mozy and am going to look into it. It's crazy the way some people get their kicks out of destroying other people's property. I have Norton 360 on this computer and am also going to have it on the new one that I'm installing soon. Wouldn't go without a good virus scanner and firewall.

Thanks so much, I love tape!!

I couldn't get rid of that 4Shared popup window. And my on board virus checker said there were viri=uses to get cleaned up. Hackers!!!

Thank you for the tape.

4shared is gettign ownky again, so I can't leave a comment. Thanks so muchf or doing all of this for us!

Hezalin said...

btw. I've had that scanner pop up before, form a different website. Sometimes the oly way to astop it is to close your browser and reopen it. FYI.

I keep looking for some really great tape pieces. These are exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you so much for them. You are a wonder.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Thanks so much for these pieces of tape! :)

I appreciate the "heads up" about viruses and pop-ups, too.

My DH finally just got rid of that fake "virus software" trojan. I was visiting my parents when the ad popped up (unrelated to actually DLing anything, oddly enough), and unfortunately my dad pressed "yes" before I could just close it! I about freaked.
Anyway, it took 2 weeks to totally rid the trojan off my computer, and FYI: McAffee did NOT find it! He had to go through my 175GB-worth of stuff folder-by-folder to find it. So you might think you don't have it, but it could still be there.

Thanks for the great tape!

I had a trojan in December, it basically crashed my computer. Now I´m fine - with a new computer, a Kaspersky Anti-Virus (like already said, McAfee was unable to find it) and Firefox instead of IE!!!

The Deming Four said...

thanks for the tip on Mozy. I fell victim to that stupid ad before on 4shared and it RUINED me! But now I'm smart (hope so!) Anyway - thanks for the tip!
