I have removed my files from this sharing site due to inappropriate advertisements and viruses being spread to user computers.



Hi everyone, I’ve had some people saying that they are seeing not so friendly images on 4shared while waiting for files to download. I’ve contacted 4shared and they say they don’t allow that and I need to send in a screen print to them and they’ll look into it.

I haven’t been able to re-create the images so I’m asking for your help. If you see anything that is not okay while waiting for one of my free files to download, would you mind taking a screen shot and emailing it to me at erica {at} confessionsofahomeschooler dot com so I can send it to 4shared.

How the heck do you take a screen print?

  1. Make sure your browser window is open and then press the “Prnt Scrn” button on the top right side of your keyboard.
  2. Open your email and click in it where you would normally type and then press ‘”ctrl” + “V” to paste the image into your email.  (If you have a mac you need to press “cmd” + “V”)
  3. For my sake and yours click on the corner of the image and drag it down to a smaller size so you don’t jam up our emails.
  4. Send it to erica {at} confessionsofahomeschooler dot com with 4shared ad in the Subject line.

I am looking into moving over my free files to something more family friendly, but as you can imagine this is quite an undertaking so in the meantime I’d like to try and help remove any vulgar ads from 4shared.

NOTE: If you are using Firefox, you can get the free Ad Block Plus add on so you don’t have to worry about ads from any sites!

Thanks so much for your help!



  1. Everytime I've tried to open one of your files in the last 2 weeks or so it just says Internet Explorer can't open the web page. Maybe that's why. How strange. Thanks for all the free files, though. You are amazing!! You have been the final push for me to follow through with planning preschool for the year, and I'm so grateful for everything you did for complete strangers like me. 🙂

  2. I just started using 4Shared because Scribd was starting to charge people who weren't "active" to download files. I sure hope 4Shared doesn't become a problem. It was a pain to switch everything and I don't have near the downloads you do.
