    I was 'surfing' last night and made a discovery that I hope I can help you all avoid. I was google-ing, and yahoo searching for quilt images. All I typed under images was the words "free quilt patterns". I saw hundreds of patterns. I was drawn to the Bargellos since I want to try one. If I had been on an IBM, I would have fried my computer! EVERY Bargello I clicked on, came up with an automatic 'Apple' warning of it being an 'attack site! Thank the angels above, I bought a Mac. Please be careful and DO NOT click on any Bargellos! (An 'Apple' warning means that the site has been detected to have virus', worms, trojans, etc.) I want to stress that EVERY Bargello image said this, I checked for you. Play safe on the 'net. -Kelly

    Thanks for the warning. IBM's get the same warning that you do if we have the right protections (virus protectors) in place. I use McAfee's site advisor which shows a green check mark if the site has been deemed safe and a red X if unsafe. I only click the check marks. We are not totally vulnerable. :thumbup:

    I thought I had virus last night but Admin said there are such things as false virus. No i don't understand either. I have Mc Afee too. It is okay now.

    The word 'free' is an automatic virus and spyware invitation. Never do a search for anything free!

    Very interesting, didn't know that. I was searching yesterday for free knitting patterns and didn't have any problem. I have McAfee too and had no warnings.
