Freebie Friday

Isn’t it great that the weekend is finally here? I’ve had a nerve wrecking week at work and am glad the weekend is finally here.
There have been some posts about a virus going around from 4shared. Personally, I haven’t had any issues at all. Neither my virus scan, malware checker, nor my firewall has detected anything lately. As a safety measure, I always download anything from the web to a separate partition, run a scan over the zip & rar files, then unpack on that same partition, and run another scan, before I put it on my windows partition. Better safe than sorry. And always remember to back up your files.
Hope you have a good weekend
Cheers, Angie aka IkeaGoddess

Thanks for linking my freebie!

The recent rash of viruses seem to be Windows XP HOME users also using IE. Its attacking a fault in the windows registry regardless of firewall and antivirus settings. google um... "TSR Virus", I think it was.

It is from the banner/ad manager on 4shared, not the zips them selves. Im sure 4shared isnt the only place packing it also.

I have dual firewalls, several malware programs, and antivirus. All up to date and it still zapped my pc. It was nasty enough Dell replaced my bits rather then try to fix it. YAY DELL!

Thanks for always linking up my freebies. It is MUCH appreciated!

Angie thanks for your Freebie List, it's my first port of call each day.

And as to the Virus going around, like Bunny Cates I have all the bells and whisles to try and prevent viruses and it caught me too. So Charlie for all the sensibility and preventative measures it csn happen.

I love your blog... originally found it searching for Ikea because i am a huge fan. Going to Ikea is one of my favorite day trips. Recently i took my 2 yr old grandchild and made a layout as he made himself comfortable in one of their rooms, thought i would send the link since it is so funny...

It SO totally AMAZES me how day-after-day, week-after-week, you can post templates from ALL around SCRAPLAND and I've still NEVER found any two alike! Perhaps some similarities, yet not a duplicate!

Angie love, I am SO sorry to hear you've had such a tough week and am hoping that you are able to realy RELAX and UNWIND over the weekend to recharge your batteries and be prepared to meet the NEW week TOTALLY refreshed!

I followed Linz's link over to Scrap Matters to see her son and HIS soon-to-be Ikea bed! TOO sweet!

Thank you SO much for ALL of the LOVELY finds today and for finding mine too! MWAH!

Linda :)
