Need screen shots of rogue anti-virus and BSOD

Aloha,

I'm putting together some advertising for my business, and I'd like to include a couple of screen shots of a rogue anti-virus, and also a Blue Screen (I don't care which version of Windows it's from). And right now I don't have any systems with a rogue on it in my shop.

I do need the screen resolution to be at least 1024x768 for the rogue.

Searching the web for screen shots that are free to use for commercial purposes has not been fruitful.

Mahalo!

What do you mean by a screen shots of a rogue anti-virus? Since when does an antivirus program be a rogue?
Please explain.

Do you mean an anti virus finding a rogue?
I can give you that based on a couple of games I bought because they were older games my AVG found them a virus this was a false positive and had to add them to my exceptions.
Some of these are not copyrighted as far as I can see
example
BSOD you can find in internet explorer images

Aloha Merete and BillDL,

Here's a link to what I mean when I refer to "rogue anti-virus".  Yeah, I could just copy the jpg and use it, but since this is for commercial use (advertising) I'd like to do this the "correct" way.

And there are lots of BSOD screen shots out there too, but none that are free for commercial purposes.

Mahalo for your assistance,

Harry Z.

Harry, I thought that I had some of my own images for the "XP Antivirus 2011" in the resolution you need, but I regret to say that I now remember deleting the folder as part of a recent cleanup.  Sorry, I had hoped to provide you with a few images.

Perhaps if you have the time to do a google image search, specifying only images larger than your required resolution, and find some suitable ones in peoples' blogs and other non-commercial sites.  I'm pretty sure someone would give you permission to use their screenshot image for your own purposes.

Thank you Harry, a bit clearer and yes it is not easy to find them actually saying free of copyright.
There is hundreds out there
I think it is because they represent different products that noone can really own the images in a sense since it illistrating rogue AV,, can't see a problem with it,
try contacting these people, since your intentions is to bring this message to the world and they could advise you if it is ok to use the images they have.
I believe they have also requested permission to use the images from various dedicated AV sites I'm sure if used in a non profit situation it would be fine.
It is about nasties.
You are not actually selling these images instead they will represent the dangers and represent why the should buy your product which has nothing to do with rogue programs.
