Can bittorrent give you spyware or viruses?


Recommended Posts

How easy to use is bittorrent? And is there a better program that is safer on your computer to use? Something with as little risk of spyware or viruses. Thanks all. ;)

Pretty easy. Some info...http://dessent.net/btfaq/

An easy starter BT client, (No Java) http://pingpong-abc.sourceforge.net/ I still use it today. ;)

Like all life on the NET, Safe Hex is key. Know your sources, scan all you downloads before using, opening them.

Have fun. :D

BT is very easy to use. There are several different clients to choose from. You'll find one of your liking. Just scan all downloads as Mactron stated.

I posted something on the boards a while back about BT and spyware.
