Default Please read! Iconator is a bad site!

Hello, thank you for viewing my thread. If this is in the wrong section of the forum, please move it.

So, a lot of people on this forum use a site called Iconator for their avatars. I used to too, but after I downloading multiple anti-virus programs, each one of them told me that Iconator was the worst on the scale of Very Safe Site to Extremely Dangerous.


The site has been taken down, but read on for more tips in case you still have icons from Iconator.

I had a few avatars from there, and when I scanned them for viruses, there are some on there. So I immediately deleted them, and my computer all of a sudden stop being as slow as it was
Guys, even if your computer isn't slow, if you have icons from Iconator, PLEASE remove them. And also, PLEASE don't offer them at your shop. Iconator was a site PACKED with viruses. And even if you don't believe me-- better safe than sorry.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Yup, I think maybe a few months ago people started talking about this virus thing. I forgot, LOL. I am glad I never downloaded any icons from there. Thanks for reminding everyone!

Yeah, I used it awhile ago and got a virus on my computer, which caused my computer to crash!

Yeah, I have heard this a while back, i don't really go on there anymore but I do have a lot of icons saved to my computer, could that really cause a problem?

As long as they're on the computer, yes.

I found out about the viruses on there last summer.
I used to get avatars from there all the time, but one day when i tried going on there my anti virus software went crazy and it crashed my computer.

Its sad to see that all those amazingly creative icons/avatars can make your computer crash. I never really go on there.
