Dia de los Muertos and Papel Picados

our day of the dead altar in 2004 - the year Johnny Cash died
Our ofrenda (altar) in 2005
ofrenda 2006 with my paper cut out of a rakish Mr. Skull
Dia de los muertos/hallowen dispaly with my paper cut out of "forever sexy" Mrs. Skull in her lingerie

I love papel picados (mexican paper cut outs) , in fact I love all paper cut out or scherenschnitte (as they are called in Germany). I have made a variety of them over the years and like particularly my two big Mr. and Mrs. Skull, that I hang up on Halloween, Dia de los muertos.

Ok, Norton picked up a few viruses on my computer called JS.SecurityToolFraud and a few others which Norton didn't give names (They Were Trojans) too. Now Norton Says it got rid of these viruses and i need too take no action. Then i got a notice saying something along the lines of " A seciruty risk appeared, no futher action needed. Then i got the same notice after about 15 minutes. So Norton hasn't got rid off it, is there anyways i can ensure that the viruses and the trojans Ps. I think the Trojans name was .dropper or something like that, Norton is still running fine, Internet links from google lead me too ad sites. Had to type this in too the bar at the top. Computer running slow.
