    Well, while I am uncertain as to the legality of either discussing torrent sharing on USMB or of downloading torrents in whatever region you live in I think it is okay to point out the utorrent file sharing program which you can download legally for free and which has a built in torrent search function.

    As for installing a torrented program, most come in the form of ISO or disc images which must either be burned to a disc for installation or mounted on a virtual drive. Just Google ISO mounting/installation software. Lastly, never under any circumstance download or open a torrent file that is zipped or compressed. Virus city, likely.

    Personally, and in my experience, it's always better to buy the software rather than risk consequences from internet service providers or even law enforcement depending on your region/nation. And after all, someone worked very hard to code the program, so.

    Well, people make copies of cd's or get music I mean the same dif, yet everyone has done it in life. Obviously, I don't know how to do a torrent and won't be stealing otherwise this thread would not exist. But its stupid to be such a big deal go after human trafficker and terrorists.
