what program do you guys suggest I use to download bit-torrents? I have been using lime wire and it is painfully slow. It sometimes takes days and often I only get some of the file after a great amount of time has been invested. Any suggestions?

I use Azureus although I've heard it is a bit of a resource hog. I haven't noticed a big difference though.

search for torrents at or a variety of other torrent search websites. when you click to download the torrent file should already be associated with your client

I agree with nicolasalk, utorrent is a great program. It uses so little system resources and it flies. I used to use azureus but like has been said above it really hogs the CPU making it harder for you to do other things when downloading. And a good sight for music is :smile:

used azureus for a long time then switched to utorrent. i used azureus because it gave me faster speeds at one point, but not anymore.

get on private trackers once you get the hang of it.

search for torrents in torrent pages, for example:

download the .torrent file, save it anywhere

open the file with utorrent and select what do you want to download

the file must have seeders, which means, people who is uploading it, if not youre never going to finish it

Limewire sucks and is loaded w/ shit that'll kill your computer. I'd suggest taking it off your computer all together.
