Few questions

I'm knew in Utorrent so I have a few questions that burdens me when i download a torrent. I know P2P software has high risks of downloading infected archives. Is there any way I can assure that the torrent i'm downloading is virus-free? I've read in other forums that the only way that i can assure that is by reading the comments on the torrent but that quite not works for me 'cause I download torrents without commentaries.

And another thing that bothers me is that I was thinking of the high possibility of me downloading a virus by a torrent so, wich anti-virus works best with utorrent/BitTorrent? I have Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011 but i would love to hear some thoughts on this.

Thanks

Honestly infected torrents are PEBKAC. If you download suspicious torrents like keygens, cracked softwares, etc... Don't be surprised to be infected one day...

So that's up to you to be careful and scan the files you downloaded if you have some doubts.

In fact, many fake/infected torrents are reported to the tracker (when it's possible) and are removed. So reading the comments may help sometimes.
