    i'm setting up a virtual machine where i'll be installing all the adobe softwares (after effects, premiere pro & photoshop: obviously from turrents) i'll be doing alot of video editing & rendering, since it requires alot of ram (all of my photoshop & editing work will be stored there, so even if there is a trojan it will be contained there, my pc is new and i want to maintain its performance, is this good plan ?

    I tell elephant this plan and he laugh because his ram is big like his choo choo and he run photoshop, sony vegas, after effects, xrumer, followliker, hosting, gsa on his personal body and no use external body for this. Because I take elephant to vet each month to not get a virus or a cold and spit the software out of his stomach. He like photoshop, but no like ananominous papal hacker.

    I do feel that the best way for you to do away with the viruses, then you need to be working with a machine that has ubuntu or linux on it. It is the best operating system when it comes to handling viruses. You will rarely get the attacks as compared to the windows based computers. So I do feel that the best thing for you to do now is look the way forward with Linux

    There's several ways to avoid viruses, but all of them? Impossible.

    If you're doing this full-time or businesswise, you might as well just buy the software.

    If you get a torrent from reputable persons and groups in the torrent scene you won't get a virus.

    Not necessarily. Many of the more prevalent worms around these days are self replicating. You get it on one device, and it will have every device on your network owned as well.

    Just have a decent scanner, use common sense when downloading, and you should be fine - I've only ever gotten 1 or 2 virus' over 10 years of torrenting.

    10 years of torrenting and 1 or 2 virus!!!
    Ahahaha you make my day my friend.
    1 or 2 virus that you've spotted...

    You're right, even in a virtualized environnment some virus can take control in your physical machine.
    For info, by visiting 1 url you can be hacked so i think we are all infected by something if youre paranoid you must use your adobe products on a pc without internet...
