Yesterday I opened a torrent and NOD32 promptly say how this is a virus. I deleted and quaranteened eveything. But, now whenever I start my computer, I get New NOD32 Warnings. "something" on my comp want to go to and want to install some files... NOD32 don't let it do, so I think nothing happened yet and my comp don't seem infected with nothing. I scanned with a NOD32 and several spyware and malware programs, but nothing was finded. What should I do? Bytheway, is the IP of a http://store.steampowered.com/...

A couple of points to bring up about your post/problem.

Yesterday I opened a torrent and NOD32 promptly say how this is a virus.

Did NOD cry on the .torrent file, or its contents? If it balked on the .torrent, chances are it's a false positive, but that could be easily verified by submitting the .torrent file to a service like http://www.virustotal.com/ or http://www.jotti.org/ where the file will be scanned by many anti-virus/trojan/malware programs. This will give you a better overview of the file.

If it balked at the content of the torrent, or the actual downloaded files, then the chances of it being infected are higher. You have to be aware that many torrents are infected, that's part of the risk you take when you download them. Carefully look at the AV warnings, and if you want to be sure, upload the file(s) to VT or Jotti.

Since the IP is to a Steam server, I am assuming you have a Valve game installed? If that's the case, perhaps it's an update to the Steam engine. Again, look at the prompts carefully and see what files are trying to connect. This will help give you direction to investigate.

Without more info as to what files are doing what, any advice beyond that is a shot in the dark.
