download winrar first:http://www.download.com/WinRAR/3000-...=dl&tag=button

next download Azureus: http://www.download.com/Azureus-BitT...ml?tag=lst-0-1

now you'll have both. install them (winrar first).

next go to: http://thepiratebay.org/

there, you will be able to search for hundreds of torrent files. also try good and isohunt.

now i wouldn't reccomend downloading movies, because you really can get into legal trouble easily with that. games you mostly need to burn, or download like 5 programs to get the files open.

basically with torrents, you find one you like, open it up into Azureus, save it somewhere, download it, and when its done downloading "seed" it, so others can download it faster. its confusing at first, but read up on it and you'll understand it better.

I've found that all the other torrent apps are just to processor heavy for me. So i stick w/ bittorrent by itself (just google it) all the other programs like azerues just didn't offer enough to keep me satisfied.

If u end a torrent half-way through (say b/c the comp killed itself) u can continue the torrent. It checks itself to see what it has and then will continue dling. The most recent bittorrent version will check all by itself once u launch it.

Anyone know if winrar will keep working after the trial version ends?

BitTornado is the best BitTorrent client around, hands down.

This man knows his ****.

1337 - Are you talking about torents? You might have a firewall blocking it.

Try opening the ports for it (forget the ones you want, google should have it). Don't know if that's your problem or not though for sure.

Could be that the seeders are capping their upload rate.

Or you aren't uploading enough.

Download speed is proportional to your upload speed.

I usually download from bands websites. I'm not into the whole album stealing thing, so it works perfect for me. If the bands you listen to don't have free MP3's on their sites, they suck.
