Answer #11

There is always a chance of a virus. It all depends on where you download the movie from. I download all of my movies through Pirate Bay and Bittorent, and I’ve never had a virus.

Answer #12

well, it really really depends on where you download the movie from. for examples, if you wanted to download a movie, at least make sure you trust the site, virus scan the file, and make sure (if you have an anti-virus) ro run a scan on the file before running it. I really recommend Spyware Terminator because it tells you the potential risk of downloading a file and it’s very easy to use. Also before you download a file, you have to see the size, most movies have a large MB file size. Therefore, you have to pay attention to the size: if it is smaller than a regular movie then I recommend not to download because it could be a virus. I personally do not like downloading movies of the internet for the same reason. I preferably watch them online for free. For example, I know a website that has a list full of movies with recent updated links so you can watch them for free (for the most part, the quality isn’t so bad).

Answer #13

Yes specially those from the torrent sites.. But not most of the time, I have a lot of downloaded movies but I have never got any virus yet, just make sure your computer has antivirus so it will notify you if you have downloaded one.

Answer #14

“Most movie downloading websites are all spam and viruses”,,,, That is NOT true! I’ve downloaded movies and music for the last ten years, and I have very seldom got a virus from it. Just check the files before you run them. No danger at all if you have a antivirus program.

Answer #15

Yes. Get original anti virus suitable to your soft ware and keep it updated :-D
