I tried downloading uTorrent and the official BitTorrent client, but the installers look like they require me to install a bunch of malware/adware/toolbars.

  1. In the past, Transmission has experienced issues with security and malware, but these have now been resolved and the software can be evaluated for what it is: a decent torrent client.
  2. Torrent clients enable you to download torrent files or use torrent magnet links. Each is used to download and share files over the internet; and each Mac BitTorrent client offers something different.
  3. BitTorrent is a client that has been specifically designed to make all downloads of content that we want from the Internet. Now, BitTorrent is also available for Mac users. The secret of this program, to allow us to download our content fast, is that the same users that are downloading files help in the downloading requests of other users for.
  4. BitMedic® AntiVirus- Malware & Adware Security was designed specifically for the Mac and offers a full suite of protection. BitMedic® gives you simple 3-step protection to give you the utmost security and keep your Mac safe from attacks.

Bittorrent For Mac

Hi everyone, I am new to the torrent scene. My question is how to torrent on a Windows machine (I have computers with Windows 7 and 8.1) with the least risk possible of getting a virus or malware on my computer. This entails a number of subquestions I have despite doing hours of research:

(1) What is the best antivirus software to torrent safely? I am using Kaspersky Internet Security 2015. Is this sufficient or should I get something else?

(2) Is it possible to stay completely safe if you never open a torrented file without directing your antivirus software to scan that file, or is it still possible for a malicious file to harm your computer automatically once you start torrenting the file, or for a torrented file to harm your computer even if you never open the file?

(3) My brother suggested attaching a cheap USB drive to the computer and direct the torrent client to save the torrented file to the USB drive, and then scan the file with antivirus software while it’s still on the USB drive before transferring it to the computer, and that way, if you do torrent a malicious file, it would only harm your USB drive and not harm the computer. Is this true? Would anyone recommend doing this?
