    If I'm not mistaken, they (ISP's) are implementing the six strike system, so you should be fine, but for the ease of your mind, do delete that file.

    However don't download anymore, there are free resources on the net (especially for movies) but if you do download (distributions of linux) and want to stay anonymous, I would recommend getting some VPN service for bittorrent downloads.

    I use Overplay.net to get access to US and UK websites such as Hulu and BBC iPlayer (for now I live abroad), and they have an affiliates system, so what I did was refer enough people and now I don't pay for it anymore. (It does take some time though, but it is very nice, once you have managed to do so)

    there is also an IP blocklist for vuze that blocks connections from the ip addresses of companies (i.e. the MAFIAA and infringement headhunting law firms) that does quite some good for my piece of mind, it's called Safe Peer.
