A Deviant…? Why, yes I am! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . also: Cleaning up after fake-antivirus malware

A little while ago I found the DeviantArt website, and staked out a page for myself.

Little by little I’ve been adding some drawings to my DA page.  I haven’t attracted much attention, but I haven’t really been trying either.  Just dipping in one toe for now.

One caution before you bop over to DA… I have gotten hit with that crap-ass phony Windows Antivirus Pro spyware several times while browsing their site… which totally sucks, but it’s the only site of its kind that I’ve found, so I’ve put up with it.

By the way – if you have gotten whacked with that fake Antivirus horseshit – the best tool I’ve found for cleaning it up is a freeware version of MalwareBytes Anti-Malware… you can download it through CNET/Download.com

UPDATE:  I’ve pretty much abandoned the DeviantArt website… at least for now… after getting infected AGAIN while visiting their site… both my personal home computer AND my office computer got crapped-up :(

Oh well…moving on, I guess…
