I always just use free stuff, then went i get a virus i just get rid of it, most viruses are very simple and easy to predict as they install in very similar areas and try to the same takes as other so once you had a few they become very easy to get rid of.

The free stuff are usually virus scanners which get viruses out of your system once they are in. You want a package that keeps the stuff out. Viruses aren’t the least of your worries though, the chances of picking up spyware or receiving a network attack is bigger. A virus will get in if you allow it to (e.g. downloads/attachments). Network attacks and spyware happen unannounced.

Well, I told you to do it “in a certain way” because with the direction you are going in, your choices are very very limited. With the way it’s now, it’s not a total train wreck, but it’s not a high speed train either.

Anca just basically listed all of the stuff I mentioned.

I normally use a brush to fade out the outsides if it’s raster. The brush gives me individual control over each edge, but Crozer’s way is very very interesting. You learn something new everyday!

If you want a huge resource hog go with McAfee or Norton. Of course if you have a fast system it won’t have that much of an impact.

I used Kaspersky Anti Virus and Kaspersky Internet Security on windows. KAV /KAS have a medium sized footprint, KAS is bigger because it has a firewall and some other stuff attached to it.

As you can see, G-DATA and F-SECURE came out best. ESET is a good one btw, I used that one too on a weaker comp. It’s a lightweight package.

Or you could burn him, send the whole thing to the cops or whoever is in charge of this stuff + ask him where he got the stuff from and forward that link to support.

Here in Holland it’s 16 for mild alchoholic beverages (Beer!) and 18 for anything strong, although they’re considering to raise beer and stuff to 18 as well.
wow.. people that young should not be drinking..

Guess what, if you make it illegal…it becomes more attractive. :)

You get the “it’s cool” part out of alcohol before you are allowed to drive or move up to stronger liquor. Besides if you get caught with alcohol behind the wheel it’s game over. One beer will kill you if you’re a beginner driver (license < 5 years).

I won’t judge the US because I just don’t know but here’s what I heard from Americans.

16: You get your drivers license…pretty easy because everybody drives an automatic over in the US.
21: LETS GET F *(^%D UP AND CRASH .

Again, I don’t know if that’s true or not.

720 ppl died in traffic last year, I don’t know the amount of drunk driving related accidents. We have a population of 15.5 million people. There are a few things I’m proud about in this country, the traffic safety is one of those.

Hmm, yeah, I weird that you have two red wallpapers in the preview. Also, I would remove the white ‘stars’ or gradients. :) Further then that, I think it looks good!

Haha, how do you know that?! Anyways, nice reply. @Tashina, good luck!

Well the illustrations could use some work, since they are yours or otherwise properly licensed you should be able to edit paths, right?

In any other case check out the tutorials here: http://vector.tutsplus.com/category/tutorials/illustration/
