    Well when I went to the site jimmy posted his link too, I did not get any of those screens, only the screen of the wolf pic, and had no problem downloading it. I also run Norton 360, and Malwarebytes Pro and got no warnings while downloading the Wolf pic.
    Also checked after my download, with my Hitman Pro....again it found nothing on my puter. Don't know why you guys had problems???

    If one clicks the malware definition in my post above(MW:HTA:7) this is the definition:

    Malware entry: MW:HTA:7
    Description: This attack uses the .htaccess file to redirect users to a site serving malware (or spam). In some cases, the index.php is also modified to do the redirection as well. Loads malware from:

    Only other thing I can think of that might have protected me more than you guys is that on my IE11 I also run a program called
    Ghostery that blocks a lot of *hit and pup's. Free program. So don't know if it protected me from that redirect or not. I just know I was not redirected to any other site.

    Oh well, not important, it's gotten too off topic.
    Unless we use Jimmy's PE tool to safely download(when not redirected), then scan with MBAM and then finally move the file to PCs picture library.

    For WinPE, it's OK to take out the arrow keys because everything you see is in RAM. If you delete anything, you delete what's in RAM, reboot then you'll get everything back.

    In addition, WinPE is good if you ever want to test a piece of software, just install, play with it and decide if you want to install in the real environment.

    Here's another example to let your friend's kids to surf the net all they want without touching your real Windows. Run faster than your Windows OS since there's no disk I/O.
    Some Very Good Points about Using PE - Everything loaded to RAM -

    It is an un-damage-able Mini OS..-
    Resets itself every reboot - perfect for TESTING..
    None of the changes made to PE OS are permanent..
    Portable mini OS,, Take anywhere and there is no telemetry..

    Yes those are all very good points, just wish I could figure out how to ADD some personal apps to your WinPE program. This is easy for a few folks, and difficult for others. Not everyone is a programmer. But I do love your program Kyhi !!
