Sopcast Warning

When you buy a computer, you can make absolutely sure that it never gets infected by a nasty virus or some kind of information-stealing malware program. The bad news is that the only way you can be 100% sure that you'll never get one of these awful things is by never logging on to the Internet. It's probably safe to assume that most people don't want to go that route. Most people wouldn't even want a computer that didn't have Internet capabilities. We love our Internet, and therefore we are willing to take the risks that come with it. The good news is that we can vastly decrease our chances of picking up any viruses or malware by following a few guidelines.

One of the benefits of having Internet is the ability to download such things as music, video, software programs and photos. Unfortunately, downloading is how you get malicious computer viruses. Many of these infected downloads look completely innocent and safe. Some of them actually are. The problem is that you have no way of knowing unless your anti-virus program alerts you; and as good as those can be, they sometimes miss. When you use some peer-to-peer programs like Sopcast that let you illegally download from and share files with other people, you are increasing the odds that you'll get a virus on your computer. There are safe places to download files, but programs like Sopcast are not those kinds of places. As nice as it can be to share files and watch live television from all over the world, it isn't worth it to deal with a questionable, and mostly illegal, operation.

This doesn't mean that you should forego the pleasure of being able to download files and watch television programs on your computer. You just want to do so responsibly. Of course it is tempting to get all of these things for free, but more than likely you will get more than you bargained for, and not in a good way. Using legitimate programs like Satellite TV for PC can help ensure that you don't have to spend time trying to get rid of a virus on your computer, or that you don't have to pay someone else to do it.

You have to purchase the Satellite TV for PC program software, but after that there are no more fees and you can watch over 3000 television programs on your computer from all over the world. Yes, programs like Sopcast are free. It is, however, a lot better to pay a one-time fee and be almost completely certain that you are keeping your computer safe than to go with the free program and pay a computer repair person a lot more later. Peer-to-peer file sharing websites are not going to go away, but that doesn't mean we have to follow the crowd and use them. It feels a lot better to have a computer that's running well than to constantly have to keep flushing out viruses that were obtained from risky downloads.
Sopcast is a peer to peer downloading service. They are very dangerous and are loaded with viruses. There are alternatives and I've written about them in conjunction with a full Sopcast review.
