Is UTorrent safe???
Utorrent is just an application to download a torrent file. It's as safe as the files that you download with it.
If you are getting something like a game mod, a linux distro, etc....then using a torrent is just fine. And overall the fastest method of downloading. Just be sure to have an AV and scan anything and everything that you download with a torrent.
You run into problems mostly when you download illegal or pirated software. It's stuff like this, that I stay, far, far away from. Follow that advice and you likely won't have too many issues.
