I have just downloaded Frostwire. When I try to play a song I have downloaded it asks me to download x3codec, which I did and installed, but it still says the same thing. I closed and reopened Frostwire but it still asks me to install X3codec. I am not a very computer savvy person so will sincerely appreciate help in simple terms that I can follow. Thank you so much!!

Is this a trojan? Have I compromised my comp? It sucks not knowing much about comps. Please help, how can I make sure I have nothing malicious in my machine? Also could you guide me how I could choose the right torrent? Any markers to go by? And, one more question: how do I interpret 'source' and 'extention'?
P.S. I just downloaded another song with the same message about codec. They do not have anything different about them in the search results for me to filter them. How do I avoid these?

JJ40 wrote:Okay, this will sound stupid, but I will ask you:
I have found where the files are being stored, and I opened the c files and went to a folder named .frostwire5. Should I delete this entire folde?

JJ40 wrote:Thanks again Scott1x. I will read your help pages now. Out of those 631 songs, only the ones that I have downloaded play. Some others play in bits and pieces. I don't quite understand it. I used to use Ares earlier and the whole process was fairly simple. And I NEVER had 630 songs out of nowhere.
