There are lots of websites that do this. Keep in mind what Arthur was doing for you is not legal. If you do it yourself, it is not legal. A good anti-virus (Pretty much anything except Nortons) will keep your computer virus free, but there is no promise that you won’t get something that it doesn’t catch right away.

@outgoingcutie15:  Never use IE unless you’re forced. That shit is bad news.

Chrome is a browser. All you need to do is google for your torrents. Keep your antivirus up to date. Scan everything you download.

 @outgoingcutie15:  You need an internet browser, a torrent client, and to find the torrents, turn them into real files, then put them on your Google drive.  I’m not going to describe the details because it is illegal.  You can easily get viruses on your PC.  You can get caught and sued by the copyright holder.  Your ISP (the company that provides your internet whether it’s DSL, Cable, or Satellite, or even dial-up) can and will send you letters telling you exactly what you downloaded and to delete it and stop, cut off your service, and black list you from ever getting internet from them.

I was online back in the BBS and Napster days when this sort of thing was common with no problems.  People I knew it used to test out songs (that took 15 minutes or more to download!), and if you liked it you were likely to buy it at least for the average person doing it at that time, of course there were people just getting everything they could… and some of them got caught and sued.  But it’s not like that toady.  Average person just wants free stuff now.  You might be lucky… then again you might not.  I know people who have gotten letters, been banned from their ISPs.  It’s up to you if the risk is worth it.

@Hyperventilate:  Awesome answers. Norton is the computer equivalent of herpes… even if you don’t have symptoms… it’s still here hiding in the registry, waiting to pop out: it’s essentially what it claims to defend against.  Agreed on IE too!  I only use IE for the Bing Rewards … do the random searches get Xbox live Microsoft points. 🙂
