Thanks for this. I never really went on the sit, but I never really knew it had viruses either. I believe I have a few avatars from there saved, so I'm going to delete them right away.

Default Re: Please read! Iconator is a bad site!

I use iconator, but not often (as i hardly change my avatar). But our Desktop computer is packed with at least 200 pics from me. xD My flash drive has a few too.
Anyways, i have saved a few avvies from iconator on my laptop, which i got 6 months ago, and it works as well as it did from day 1.
A few days ago, my laptop had an error while starting up, so I ran 2 different virus scans. One from by Windows and one by Trend-Micro Titanium security. Both came up as 0 Threats/ viruses. 100% clean.

I have seen that iconator is unsafe, but plenty of websites are, especially big ones like iconator, tinypic, addictinggames, ect. because they are used often and easy targets.

If you aren't a computer nerd (like me ) I would agree with Sophies statement- stay away. But if you know how to look for these things (ex. using Google Chromes "Inspect Element" tool) then iconator is okay if you're cautious.


This is all just my side / opinion though.

Thanks for the heads-up! I don't go on icon sites, but I'm sure this is a great reminder for people who do.

The website has viruses. Not exactly the icons. But they still probably do. A lot of virus scans don't get things Iconor because it's very sneaky.
