^ See what I mean, lol. I didn't even know it was called that Ecto1.

Same was going on here, I actually had the card company refuse the payments I made to the two companies last night. I am able to keep large files open now but surely a 7 yr old OS is in need of a fresh start so I'm making plans to reformat this and keep it on the side for net use only.

I wish it was that easy for mine but this is ridiculous, I hate to lose all my settings.
I got tired of that crap, bought a massive (for me) additional hard drive and now the only thing on my c:// drive are programs. All data, images etc are on the other drive. If I get a virus that I can't get rid of quickly, I simply restore the C:// drive and reload my programs. I found this much easier and quicker than spending countless hours trying to get rid of a stubborn virus/trojan etc.

Mark, glad you got your computer working again .... I didn't use the on line method to repair mine as I couldn't open IE or any other program that might have helped the situation. I had to call Microsoft and have them run me through the process.....took about an hour to clear all the problems.

Doodler, thank you for the kind words .......
I had the same problem but as I was scrounging around I realized that I was not going to be able to find a public domain image of a movie car. As a photog, I try to not use other's images without permission even if they belong to some big corp.

Having said that, I do love (as usual) what you did with your images. With talent like that, you don't need to draw.

I have 6 terabytes of backup an this and the virus was a backdoor trojan for sure, called a tidserve request amd I'm usually good about keeping virses off, what I do though is websites and it causes problems when you take one over and the guy doesn't want to give it up and sends you into a database with a virus planted in it as a slap in the face.

As for images to use, I don't have any stars cars but there are some out there that are out there, I had a few of Christine, one of my favorites, look for something close and possibly change the hue or color to match.

Hey, good idea. I think I know what I can do. Thanks for the suggestion.

Bumble Bee the Transformer

Ok, here's my entry. Since Bob and I have very similar styles, I thought I'd try something different this time.

Thanks, just trying to reach the bar that you've already set We both know though that the last entry is pretty sloppy. Rushing to finish before 'Idol' and used the magic wand to cut it out. Left waaaay too much haloing. I see other problems also. But, it's an entry and hopefully will encourage others to post. You know, they may be thinking: "hell, I can do better than that!" ...hehehe

Not a thing wrong with that, I do know what you mean about "doing better" though, these guys have taught me to do more and challenge myself, I am in now way the same league as most of the guys here but it sure is relaxing to get something done and have it close to what you envisioned. All of the artists here are exceptional in their own way and mentors if you will; to at least take a tip from them and come and play in this.

Looks like everyone is running late this month, including me. Here's my hasty "movie car' rendition for the month of April. Actually, it's a truck, and a nasty one at that. It's the '41 Chevy cabover that the slasher drove in "Jeepers Creepers." So far, the artwork posted is fab as usual, but I'm surprised that more guys arn't giving this a shot.
