    thanks!

    I just got a trojan warning from Avast while trying to download the snowy/mountain wallpaper.. Just a word of caution!

    @Sharon – I checked each of these files using VirusTotal before posting them here, it sounds like Avast is showing a false positive on it.

    Going on the assumption that the one you are referring to is the Kidcon Alpine OS icon set I just ran it through VirusTotal again and it showed no problems. Here is the link for the results:

    Hope this helps. ^__^
