    Try disabling your internet security then see if you can download... Also What internet security you got?

    torrents are a great conduit for viri. Use at your own risk.

    all P2P software are conduits for viri- this is because they SHARE computers and you do not know what computers are safe or not when downloading. Unless you have a closed system, torrents, P2P software are very dangerous.

    Not really. I always scan files before hand. But sometimes virus scanners can miss some viruses.

    virus scanners cannot always detect rootkits. Use torrents at your own risk.
