    Can you trust www.sharereactor.com to deliver good, virus-free, and what-it-says-on-the-box downloads?

    I also have another question concerning www.sharereactor.com, when you get the links and begin downloading, is the file the same everytime you download it? e.g. The link is www.236263nininvwey.com and I want to download it on eMule. Next time I download it, am I downloading from the exact link or somebody else's machine?

    Oh I see. Does anyone else understand my question?

    I'll rephrase it: On Sharereactor, they are links for each files... When I download the files, is it the same file I'm downloading all the time? Because if it isn't, I could be downloading off somebody, who has implanted a virus in the download!!!! 0_0

    They are not the same links on sharereactor, when you are on sharereactor what links do you click?

    But I mean you could be downloading from another person who has that file!!!! It's really hard to put it into a question that makes sense....

    I think you mean can a copy of the file (from a different user) become infected and then you download it?
    If thats what you mean then i dont think so (but i'm sure Dela or someone else will correct me if i'm wrong) because the files are hashed, if the file changes (because of a virus) the hash will change and you wont download it from that user.

    Yep thats exactly what I am saying, the file cant be changed and with the ed2k link, the hash of the file is in it so no mistakes will be made!
