I so hope this is not off topic...
I was looking for some icons to use for a project and I went to softseek to check out some free icon downloads. I tried to download 2 different icon sets in zip files but my AVG security software gave a Trojan warning on both. While it said it could remove the threat I didn't download either but now I am wondering, could I have downloaded them after AVG removed the threat, used them and still have been safe?
Also, could anyone recommend a good safe place to find free downloads these days? Someone told me that there are no longer any safe free download sites anywhere...Is that really true, will I get these warnings on all files?
