    People can stash viruses in stuff all the time (pictures being one)... like if you download stuff like mp3's scan them to be sure someone wasn't being cute and attached a bonus you don't want...

    I know all about this virus thing. Ive been taken pics over the years on my digital camera and putting them in the pic folder. Then one day I run a virus scan and it picks up something in the folder sure enough I had to contain the HOLE darn folder all those pics gone I had to quarintine it. I think the virus must have attached itself to the folder by another disk it was nasty I can tell you that but at least its gone now (and so are all those pics) /forums/images/icons/confused.gif
