    stop downloading for a while and use an IP blocker like Peerguardian.

    Where did you get the torrentfiles from?

    There are some fake versions of Bittorrent, some even contain spyware with it. I suggest you make absolutely sure you got it from the original sites.

    hi,
    I got the torrentfiles from those sticky post above. I think the file I got is bogus, I has a bunch of rar file but I can't unrar. So I guess they put it on purpose and see who downloading it?(just wonder how they even know what file I'm downloading).
    So if I use peerguardan and use a nonstandard port, it'll be more diffcult for them to trace me right?

    I read some post saying that the US law can't apply in Canada here. But I will stay low for a while to make sure.

    Thank you
