Alec, I have Spybot, Ad-Aware, Spyware Blaster, and about 5 other spyware tools so I'm pretty safe. I was just checking on here to see if anyone had a recommendation for a good picture ripper (aka picture grabber) that was freeware (yes, I am a cheap bastard). Why pay for something if I can get it for free. I just thought I could save myself some time if someone knew a good one so I didn't have to download five different ones and try them all out. I am a graphics nut and when I come across a site that has images I like it's important to have a way to download them without individually saving each and every file one at a time.
One of the posters suggested tucows.com. There were several listed there, so I will try some of those out. Taco impugns my integrity
by suggesting I am downloading porn. While I cannot say my drive is free of images that my mother would disapprove of, that's not really my bag (although I do have a tremendous collection of pin-ups - particularly the artists of the 40s and 50s - my favorite is Alberto Vargas).
