Just like you can contract a virus from downloading strange software from websites, you can contract viruses by downloading files using torrents. It doesn't really matter how you acquire software (on CD, direct download, FT transfer, e-mail, etc), if it's infected then it's infected.

The idea is to only download known, legal software from known, trusted sources to minimize the risk of an infected download, and even then be sure to have security software installed and ready to go.

While we use bit torrents to get our Open Office, Linux and such I have yet to find any legitimate music downloads there.

Have you?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
