i was just browsing isohunt and a pdf file automatically downloaded to my downloads file, the pdf title was TOS pdf. i heard you should not open any pdf's that automatically download like this so i deleted it. just a heads up, do not open these files, they are some sort of virus.

good to know, although how does it auto download? from just browsing or from the iso downloads?

have no idea, but the bad pdf's will auto download with no provocation, when they are opened they drop off a virus in your system, scary stuff.

Well your using public trackers. That doesn't help. Make sure whatever browser you have have the settings where it will not auto download and or open. I have it set to where it needs to ask for my approval to download. Both my firewall and antivirus does this
