Firstly, I am not very good with computers so forgive me if my question seems ridiculous.
Secondly, have no other choice but to download a torrent of a program (Articulate Studio Pro) otherwise I would have to folk out over $1000 for the software. However, every version I download has viruses/malware stuff in it. I have got rid of all the viruses (using AVG and malwarebytes anti-malware), but I have to keep downloading program after program trying to find a non-infected version (which is obviously putting my computer at constant risk).
What I need to know is: Once I have got rid of the virus, are the downloaded files safe to use?
Are the files purposely put online to infect your computer and will not contain the desired file? Or do they contain the needed files, but are cased in a virus?
Also, are there any sites you recommend for downloading the file I need, I am currently using xxxxxxx
