Bittorent

Postby so0perspam » Sat Jul 09, 2005 6:42 pm

I'm downloading a PC game via Bittorent right now on LimeWire in the form of a .zip file, but am not sure what to do with the .zip file now that I've finished downloading it. Do I write the .zip on a CD? Extract all files from the .zip? Any help would be appreciated.

In other words, you're stealing the game.

Can't help you there.

If you have winrar or winzip, extract the files to your desktop and open from there. Also do yourself a favor and get Azureus, it runs much better.

With zip files you always just extract them to get to everything else

What does BitTorrent has to do with LimeWire?

What game is it and can I have it?

Hell if I know. Unless LimeWire has changed, the two are entirely different.

Guys, DON'T USE BITTORRENT

I attracted the Aurora Spyware(terrible, terrible, if you don't know. Do a google search)

My Limewire Pro has been doing no harm ;-D

What did you download though and where did you get the torrent?

Bittorrent is simply a program to get stuff people put up for download.

No...my question is what were you downloading when you ended up with the virus? A TV show? A program? A game?
