    Help with downloading on Bittorrent please.

    Hey guys

    I have just downloaded something (for the first time). Does anyone know how to open the document now! The download has completed.

    Rep will be given!

    Thanks

    Additional info: it's a .rar file

    download winrar free(quick google) then right click the torrent,click "extract to" and it creates the avi file which can be played

    You must do it on file number 1 if the AVI is broken down into rar file segments (right click>extract to>desktop)

    never had a virus ever in a rar file. Guess it depends what you are downloading and from. I only use private sites or newsgroups.

    It does csiman I remember the viruses/spyware I use to get use to come from public trackers, TPB being the main one. Since only using private trackers I've not had one that I can link back to a download off there. :-D

    makes me smile when people say they still use limewire and wonder why AVG didnt stop viruses.

    its like sleeping with a prostitute with a condom with holes in and wondering where the STD came from :-D

    Pfft, all you need to do is sterilise your download. Best advice i can give is: download from wherever you choose, burn to a disc, then sterilise the disk. You can soak it in TCP for 5 minutes, or put it in a hot oven for 30-40 seconds.

    Good advice to never use Limewire, however I would recommend Avast over AVG any day.

    I didn't think you needed a condom with street girls? She said 'these were the rules?' I thought they were immune?! :w00t:

    Now you don't a few years ago with the old winrar you had to start with … Now you don't a few years ago with the old winrar you had to start with the first one (normally .rar and the others are .r01 etc), or it would fail. Fine to do any file now though.



    True but that was many years ago, can't think where you needed to open the 'master' file for over 3 years.
