We use a torrent client and soulseek on a few computers.

"Hope" there are a number of screen snapshot programs. A good, free multiuse program is Irfanview. Downlad and install. open it. Click on 'Options' at the top and then click capture/screenshot. Leave the program open and flip back to the desired screen. Use the assigned button to capture and save the screenshot.

Thanks for all the replys, you guys seem to have a good idea what your on about so I have to say my original concern as seomwhat declined.
I have managed to get a screen capture though just to proove it really was saying MOD. I havent had any attempts now for a few hours so hopefully its all over.
The whole thing as really opened my eyes up to how unsecure the internet really is. kind of worrying really, and like what smokeyjo said. What are the real big corperations like Microsoft up to and what can anyone really do about it??

Im guessing most hits were legitiment torrent searches, from numerous clients.
Dont be paranoid, especially if your using torrents, gaming networks, etc..
