Never once got a virus from the files as they sweep stuff before they put it up. Pretty good retention too, even on their basic plan.
Out of curiosity though, which torrent site do you use?
One last thing, this is a great time of year for movies because there are dvd screener copies of every Academy Award nomination available.
I think that's a great idea if you download a lot of stuff. Easier and safer. That's the problem with torrents. The pirate Bay was awesome until the feds got hold of it. After that I used btjunkie.org, but now that's shut down. The beauty of those two was that the user community rated and commented frequently to weed out fakes and dangerous files. Now I use isohunt or kickasstorrents, but they aren't the same level of quality.
+1 on the screeners. Best time to get dvd quality movies super early.
