Either way, it was just a case of your wording being a little confusing and me misunderstanding the meaning you intended for that sentence to have. Nothing worth holding a grude over. Don't need to apologize, man. It is cool.
ahaha, I see. Well, ALWAYS go for torrents which have these 'pink' skull signs. They're the ones uploaded by users deemed 'trusted' by the site. It's the least likely for them to have viruses/malware. there are green skulls too, btw. They're the VIP uploaders. Though I have a habit of downloading stuff from the 'trusted' guys instead of 'vip' people. So I don't really know how much the VIP tag means. :p
Apart from that, I'd advise to steer clear from torrents with no comments. Try to look for ones with at least 2-3 pages of comments and, if possible, read them. If a majority of them say "it doesn't work" try looking for another. Almost every torrent has its share of "doesn't work" people. But if a torrent has like 80 people saying "It worked. Although it took me a while to get it to work I did this and that and blah blah" when compared to 10 who say it doesn't work; it's a good sign that the torrent in question is actually clean. :p
Probably not Lol. When it comes to torrents I'm very nubish. If you would like to point me in the right directions or list some tell tale signs that will avoid painful computer death. I'm always open for suggestions. Lol.
Oh I know I can. But this is my second computer, the last one dying of horrendous viruses due to my carelessness on Pirate Bay. I'm just nervous, I don't want this one to die trying to get a free Photoshop. In the words of Thel Vadum (The Arbiter from Halo) "Your (me) ignorance destroyed one of the sacred rings (my last computer) it shall not harm another." :3
