Thread: Emulators and Viruses....?

    Default Emulators and Viruses....?

    I was introduced to emulators a while ago, but never really took the dive to use them. I was told from the beginning that emulators have viruses. But today, I was talking to my co-workers about this, and they said that viruses are rare and depend on what site you download them from and which versions. Is this true? I would like to download quite a few games, but am afraid that I will get a virus. Can anyone provide some insight on this...?

    emulators from here are clear from viruses. https://www.emulator-zone.com/
    you will never get virus from trusted sites.
    and i tell one thing google removes pirate sites from searching because they break law.
    so use yandex.com instead its russian browser which show all sites not available by google.
    you need know phrase which you need write in search bar of your browser.
    thats all .
    asking here for roms is illegal.

    the same wii etc...
    of course you can break law but its your choice in my country for be pirate you will be in prison for 3 or 5 years.
    but in Poland there is a catch of law you can have something for own use but you cant distribute it .
    im dont know EU and USA law.

    I don't know about Yandex... but Google has been my friend for years in this. Yes, my usuals where a bit lower on the search list in Yandex, surpassed bu some Russian site's like you said, but my usuals where still there, so... I don't know.
