Well, first, discussing anything about torrents or piratebay is against forum rules. Since your new we'll let it slide with this warning.

Second, you can never be sure that anything downloaded illegally is safe. I'd recommend you just use a free antivirus (like Avast that you mentioned). There are plenty of discussions here about free antivirus programs that a quick search could show you.

Avast
AVG
Microsoft Security Essentials
Etc, etc, etc....

I advise using a combo of tools --- Microsoft Security Essential --- Spybot S&D --- Super Antispyware --- Advanced Systemcare 5 --- and common sense

You can download all of them J & L Custom PC, download here!

I think the best thing you can do HeaveNDenieD is uninstall your Norton 360 and go Freeware, I use ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall, Antivirus Engine is Kaspersky and I also use Malwarebytes Free for a second opinion
