    What do I have to do? And what file extensions can carry them? Because I want to DL this torrent, but there's not a lot of comments so I'm a bit paranoid. Is just downloading a .exe enough or do I have to actually run the application? And a .rar is just like a .zip right?

    you want to download a virus infected file ? if yes, then just if you download it will sit there in your computer, but if you run it you will get infected..
