I never knew about the Warez/Trojan, usually cracked software come with them
from Rapidshare, and the 4GB limit?? No I download more than that from
Rapidshare per day.
Ok since all of you share a common idea towards rapidshare I guess it is not
a good choice after all. Thanks for the replies everyone.

I agree rapid share is not a good idea. I downloaded, and verify that

Trojan hidden file for rewrite of files. And bad ISO so if you download
anything always do a check sum ASAP. Rapid share has long been a source for
warez and other stuff.
