    Of course, but my point is a general one. P2P in general is a high-risk activity compared to not doing it.

    Yeah it does mate. Obviously there are some(none non-member sites that I know off) that do check all their torrents for Virii. Also obviously, when downloading a patch from an official game developers website, via bit torrent(which is peer to peer, on a grand scale) there is almost no chance of getting a virus. If you were to virus scan everything that you downloaded, and read the comments of every torrent before getting it, then your chances of getting a virus would be significantly reduced too.

    It will be the P2P program, I have to reboot my computer AND the router every now and then when I've been downloading from bit torrent for a while (usually a day or two).

    I like azerus - but like anything, you should check the key and virus check it after. Its saved me a hell of a lot of time - i'd still be downloading fedora and debian iso's without it

    and yes, the best way to protect your computer is to disconnect it and switch it off, but thats a bit useless - you can even get infected just by being on the net, firewall or not.

    btw, I have the same prob, I don't run azerus, except overnight and only after new iso's have been released - and the router slows after about 2-3 months, thats why i'm not too worried about it! Itsa s shame you can't stop the downloading of dodgy stuff, and could bring it down to a reasonable price instead.
