Careful on Downloading SVG files

Oh I have learned a valuable lesson. Be careful of the SVG files you download. There are 2 reasons I found for this.
1. Some just might have a virus attached to them, I have not had this happen but was warned of them form a forum on Craft edge.
2. Some of the cut files, ok a lot of the cut files are junk! If they don’t show a picture of the cut item I am going to pass them up. I spent hours in the craft room yesterday cutting things out that I downloaded just to find out they don’t work. Good thing I had a bunch of cheap paper and I used it to test cut things. I came down hours later with not one thing to show for the time. Grrrrrrrr
I am going to spend some time cleaning out my files (I have over 6000) and I will be much more careful of the files I do download.

  1. I don't understand all the virus stuff but they seem to be everywhere now! I've had a couple of them and they are a real pain in the bender.
