:trumpet: Call me crazy, but I am. I want to know if I can watch movies online for free without "accidently" downloading a bug or virus. Or something that will keep me from doing my homework during the week?

I was watching a movie from this site for free (youku.com) and even though it had chinese subtitles, it was going great till my computer logged off right in the middle of a scene and then came back on. After that, I've had no peace with it till I found you!!!!!!!!! :flowers: :thumbsup:

But I wanted to know if I could possible watch a movie online (for free) without making the same mistake twice? Thank you for your time and patience.

GRATEFUL!!!!!!!!

I shall leave the more thorough advice to the experts here but, for myself, I have (along with a flock of anti-virus and anti-malware programs running) Sygate FireWall. It's the freeware version and if I even think of going to any site that has danger lurking in it, the program throws up a huge red window saying "Warning!!" and literally bells and whistles go off.
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

I have to agree.

yoku.com is a Chinese based site probably fraught with many problems. I would avoid any downloads from it.

A good AV and firewall is a must.

Have you perused the basic info here? http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
