No, using a good antivirus program that offers real time scanning and scanning the torrents on completion will decrease your chances of getting a virus.

@OP,

If it helps you any, I've been using Avast free version for years as well as Microsoft Security Essentials.

Both work well, although I personally prefer Avast because imo, it has a slicker, easier to use, interface.
