Sorry if I'm not putting this in the right area.

This is just an FYI and a warning.
I downloaded from the site Ole Sims found here: http://olesmit.blogspot.com/ and, luckily, my antivirus warned me as I was installing the files that they contained trojans. Please take care who and where you download from. I highly suggest not downloading anything from Ole Sims.

Good point Navetsea.
I just got home from work. I'll see if I can contact the site owner as soon as I'm settled in.

Edited: The site owner responded to my post to his page and I emailed him/ her. I'm still waiting for a response.

Well, I emailed the site owner 3 days ago and I have yet to get a response. It may just be because it's over the holiday or, more likely, since they are his/ her sims - the trojan was put in on purpose.

Ok, I finally received an email back. This is it:

Ole smit:
"Hi, my sims archives do not contain trojans, as well as my PC. I don't know who create viruses and what are the ways to find their invasion of the computers, but my sims here certainly not to blame, as I check out, and even scanned the program Eset Nod32."


~ I don't know much about viruses or trojans but that site was the only one I had downloaded from that day - I've checked my pc history to make sure - so, he can claim whatever he wants. There is next to no chance the trojan came from somewhere else.
