Q: If you download movies from a torrent site is it illegal?

so I downloaded diary of a whimpy kid, school of rock, the spy next door,the pacifier,the simpsons movie, and a hindi movie called my name is khan. from a torrent site. so i wanted to know if its illegal to download these movies

RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: If you download movies from a torrent site is it illegal?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: If you download movies from a torrent site is it illegal?

Of course its illegal, at least in the US.

Movies are some of the best ways to pass time. The way some movies really resonate with me is quite fascinating. I kind of prefer watching TV series these days because the story tends to be longer. Aside from that, it is quite an amazing blog you
have here. I am a blogger too and I know the work you have to put in just to get a website as nice as yours. Your contents are great and I have bookmarked your website and would becoming every day. I tried these two websited for downloading movies but (zamob and Fzmovies)

Can you please attempt to actually analyze my post before closing them? i am no longer running the torrent game( i downloaded steam) the medieval 2 total war demo and the company of heroes 2 beta continue to lag and are unresponsive. The steam client is freezing on me out of nowhere and i believe it is either driver related or possibly left over background programs that are not showing up.

My laptop is slow and i believe this has something to do with the system refresh option of windows 8 i already used possibly effecting my files and drivers. Also when i click on a YouTube or any video for that matter it takes a second for the sound to play other times i have to click on the audio icon for it to start up. Can someone please help me with this instead of referring me to forum guidelines i am not in fact violating?

This started happening on April 10th, im downloading the same title over and over again, to try and get the full length film, but with different amounts of seeds and peers, only to find when clicking on to burn, that the movie is just a few seconds long, yet the movie is taking the usual length of time on Torrent.

Hello all-

I seem to be having a major issue with a program that I've downloaded. I downloaded Microsoft Office 2007 from a Demonoid thinking it was safe and after reading the comments it seemed safe. After waiting for hours and hours I finally downloaded and installed this program. It turns out the program was in Turkish so I then downloaded a Language Pack and had no idea what to do after that. So I then went to BitComet and chose to ?Delete All Files?, well not all files have been deleted from my laptop?I had a strange feeling about this and I know shame on me for even going through with this. Indeed, I should have known better. I then attempted to do a System Restore and had to do that about 4 maybe 5 times. When I restarted my laptop after the restore, there was a message saying that:

?System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer?s system files and settings were not changed.

An unspecified error occurred during System Restore.

You might wasn?t to try System Restore again and choose a different restore point.
For more information, see System Restore: frequently asked questions?.

I downloaded a .torrent file the other day, 6 kb, and low and behold.. as soon as I opened it I was hit by a handful of viruses. Pop ups started flying up and i lost control of the computer. I couldn't get back into safe mode when i tried to reboot. The computer fan would spin very loudly while loading and then the whole thing would shut down before windows came up. No blue screen or anything. I eventually managed to log back in in normal and was able to kill the bulk of the suspicious processes while they were loading. I think that i've managed to remove a fair number of the viruses but i'm still having a problem. For instance, my computer still won't boot in safe mode. I've attached my HiJackThis log for reference. I do know that one virus that is still on the hard drive is in the C:\Recycler file. I also disabled several services that i found suspicious when i was attempting to clean my machine. Now, when trying to connect to the wireless internet at my house, it says Waiting for Network for several minutes then closes. Wired networking doesn't seem to be a problem.

My question is, do I really need to set my IP into static instead of dynamic?
If I set my laptop's IP into static, do I need to make my other PC into static IP also?
My setting is one router, 2 laptop, and 1 PC.
I'm a newbie about this kind of stuff.

If there is a simpler way on how to open the port for bit torrent, that would be great.

We're not quite sure why we're down this time, but I'm sure we know about it and are working to resolve it

In the mean time, check out this amusing yet insightful video from the Globe and Mail asking Canadians, "What's worse: jaywalking, or downloading a song illegally?"

Sounds not good.....
probably Anti Pirated software installed in your system (like trojan) that block torent site...

Hi ..
Recently, I bought a Lenovo Notebook with Windows 8 pre installed. I have installed only basic software?s for office needs, browsers, some media players, photo editor and utorrent. I have also installed Kaspersky Internet Security, for which I have a 3 year license. The notebook performs pretty well except that the utorrent software is not downloading anything.My internet connection is provided by ABC Communications in Vancouver. I don?t think there are any issues with the connection, as I am able to browse, stream videos and download files with very good speed, but I am not able to download torrent files. I completely scanned the notebook with kaspersky and found no virus issues. Is it any problem with utorrent software or any misconfiguration issues? Can someone help me solve this problem? Thanks in advance.

A:Unable to download files using torrent.

To check configuration, try downloading one of those torrents:

Alternative downloads | Ubuntu

I just bought a new Toshiba Laptop a135-s4427. I put 1.5 gigs of ram in it. It is running windows vista and it is great. But every time I download something on utorrent it completly freezes my laptop. I mine completly, I can't do anything but hold down the power button to turn it off.
What could be the problem? More RAM?
 

A:Laptop freezes during torrent download

Torrents are great conduits for viri. It also may be over-taxing your system.

something is trying to download an update to my pc as we speak. i don't have any idea what or who it is. it won't let me click or double click or right click on it. it's icon is yellow and shaped like a shield with a black exclamation point in the middle. it is moving very slowly. the balloon

i have norton and windows updates. but neither of those will download anything without letting me know first. this first appeared while downloading Nero or when i was at the IBM site (not sure which)

does anyone know what or who this is? i have no idea what to do at this point. i can't get rid of it.

task manager has these things moving at the time of the download:

csrss.exe
lsass.exe
lxbfbmon.exe
svchost.exe
explorer.exe

thanks
 

A:? Illegal Download

The items running in the background all seem to check out - all MS based except for lxbfbmon.exe which is related to your printer ( I think ) Lexmark?

Thanks in advance for you help!A couple days ago my machine started running EXTREMELY slow all of a sudden (can take 45 mins+ to boot up). When I tried to reboot it took a LONG time to load and once loaded it is so slow it is barely operable. I had recently downloaded some torrent files (.epub files but maybe some malware was hidden in them?) from what seemed to be credible sources.One of the times I rebooted it brought up system repair which failed to repair anything but did try to do a system restore. This didn't improve anything.At one point I recieved an error message saying that I may be a victim of software counterfeiting (screenshot attached). I was able to validate windows using Microsofts validiation tool but when I rebooted again i get text at the bottom right corner of my desktop saying "Windows 7 Build 7601 This Copy of Windows is not genuine". I bought my Gateway with Windows preloaded, wtf![attachment=112341:photo1.JPG]Also, on a reboot I received a message that "one of your disks needs to be check for consistency" it then proceeded to scan/move/ delete several items (screenshot also attached). Nothing was improved once it started.[attachment=112342:photo.JPG]Also, the windows problem center says that there is a "video hardware error" I tried to uninstall the driver and reboot whcih didnt help and then removed my videocard and used the onboard graphics which also did nothing. I have some extremely important pic... Read more
