Unhappy Oh my god!

I had viruses! It was removed (by Norton) but it was caused by searching on google! GOOGLE! For the search and find game! Everything is fine, they where not here long (like a sec) but that game is evil!!! I would not do it, because those pics can be trouble! Please don't do it for your safety, it is dangerous!
So scary!

All websites have the possibilities of a virus... bettafish had one, once. It's part of the danger of using the internet.

I know but google is the worst! The pics could be the end for you. I hate tracking cookies! I would be safe and look at sites that seem and look pro or/and good. What virus was it? Trojan?

Its not google, its the sites that the pictures are on. You just have to be careful with what you click. like CodeRed said, its just part of using the internet.

Google should try to filter them lol. I know. Some people are bad in ways and do what they do. But it is scary that you almost put your family in danger, pets on auction and friends at risks. So be careful people! Some things are not what they seem...
*poof* lol I get it. The internet is scary and fun, blah blah blah. I have parents

With the right mix of virus protection, you will be fine and not have to worry. I usually use my Linux(a Ubuntu distribution) desktop and don't worry at all. =p

Risks one takes when using the internet, essentially.

I use something called startpage, because I heard/read about google recording searches & IP addresses, which can be accessed by those with not-so-nice intentions.

There is no 100% security though, even with special software.
