How to download torrents or files SAFLEY

Many torrents or files downloaded from Lime wire, Bit torrent, and other torrent programs have viruses on them. There is a way to combat this so that these viruses cannot harm your computer. All you need is a flash drive or external hard drive. When you decide to download a file or torrent download on to the drive rather than your pc. Once it has been downloaded use a anti-virus program to scan the file. If the file is corrupt with a virus you can safely delete it. Should you open the file without scanning it and it does contain a virus don't worry there is still hope. Since the file is saved on a external drive or flash drive just reformat the drive and your computer will still be safe.

how do i use bit torrent to down load music


I would use limewire for that. It's free and fast. If you need to use bit torrent, you need to find a torrent host, such as www.thepiratebay.org, or Torrent reactor. Then you click on it chose open and bit torrent should open. Then wait until it downloads. Don't use this to down load copy write protected music or software. The anti piracy people will come and hunt you down.
