I was wondering if it was safe to watch videos on google search. I mean, if videos from a bad site have viruses or something implanted into them, would they still be able to download to your computer? Despite that you're watching them from google? Thanks for your help!

Hi Music Is My Passion If you're system and programs are properly patched and kept up to date, its a minimum risk. Not fool-proof, mind you, but a good step of the way! The danger here, is "only" when you have to accept some 3rd party cookie or install active X objects etc. in order to view the video. In those cases, I view it as better be safe than sorry. Say no to those requests unless you trust the provider 150% !! Abydos
