    Hello Forum,
    I recently downloaded some Tv programs from Tv Underground.org. After two days of downloading something got into my Pc and destroyed the memory ( A Worm I Think.) and had to purchase a new one.I thought with the security programs i have installed ( Please See Signature.) They would have kept me safe and secure from this sort of attack.What I don't understand is my friend has been downloading from this site for months and never had a problem,he only has AVG free and XP2 firewall.Have I just been unlucky,has any one else downloaded from this site with no problems.Any comments would be appreciated.

    I've downloaded stuff from there over a couple of years with no problems.
