Where is a *safe* download for bit-torrent?

I did a google search, but I dont want to download something Virus ridden. Is there a better p2p program that I could use?

I need something that shares all file types, and has a huge user base.

it has no options for anything. Lack of configurablility. Azureus and BitTornado are good. I use Azureus myself.

I prefer not to use torrents if I don't have to, but if I do, then I use ABC too.

Yea, I'm just getting sick of using Winmx, and getting no downloads when I search for something that's not necessarily popular... Like old game cracks and stuff (Just an Example. I am aware of gamecopy world .)

Thanks guys.

hey, I have another question:


Does anyone know of any good antivirus programs that Are free? I used norton for the longest time, but it expired, and I had to download some third rate, untrusted antivirus software (avast!). Thanks

How does abc work?
I'm sorry if I sound like a n00b with this... I am... how would I "search" for a file with abc?

No... Winrar is legal... it's like a zip program. Doesnt have necessarily to do with illigal/pirated software. It's like winzip.

go to google and type "litezone", the first site there is basically all you need.

Provided the technology exists to predict the future, yes.

Torrents are just a file that holds information on where to get the actual file from.

Umm.. Avast! is NOT Third rate. I reccomend avast, it works way better then anything else I ever used. Also, Norton and McAfee are the CRAPPIEST Antivirus programs ever.
