Like the title says.... So I tried to download Corel Painter 11. Turns out I was on a bad site, so now I have an entirely new account. My whole database was erased...hahaha.... -____-"
I basically downloaded a virus right into my computer. As an added bonus, it changes its name every second or so, and it took me two days to get rid of it. Meaning I deleted my whole account. :/

So now I have NONE of the brushes and stamps that I used to use for the comic, and I don't know where I can get them anymore. The sites that used to have them, I can't find them. Can anyone suggest places I can get photoshop pattern stamps and regular stamps? Not images that you have to copy and paste and all that trouble, just stamps. Brushes would help too.

Thank you for the help. I'll try my best to get a page out soon...

That Sucks.... I get most of my stamps and brushes on deviantart, and you should get PandaCloud. It's a free antivirus software that works AMAZINGLY!! It even has this little gauge that appears on the top left corner of your browser that tells you if it's a bad site or not. Green= Good, Red= Bad. XD

There's apparently an ad on DA that gives a virus to the comp, even if you don't click it. Also, ads on pages on DA are refreshed every couple of seconds even if you don't change pages -- so it's better not to keep DA on for a long time, since that just increases the chances of getting the virus. >_<

@ravingcat
Are you sure it's not just some rumor? o.O DA would be giving out warnings and disabling advertisements if that happened.

@Sisaru-Chan
Okay I'll take a look around then :]
I don't think any antivirus would work, because DA is not really a bad site though. :0

@CrimsonChrome
Yea I think it's really just a rumor or something. I don't quite think it's real...
Haha I guess I'll look around a bit more then :]

@Crimson Chrome

I guess chances of getting the virus are pretty low then. XD
