There are plenty of guides online. Just search google for bittorrent guides.

I'm pretty reluctant at downloading torrents. I hear they could have corrupt files.

So does just about everything on the internet. As for me, my computer is so unprotected that it doesnt even have a virus scan or protector. I've never had any problems with corrupt or planted files. You just have to look for the right ones.

Torrents don't really carry viruses or anything.

Back to the question at hand: just download utorrent (www.utorrent.com, I think), like camiah said. But torrents aren't just on d-addicts.com... you can Google the name of whatever you want to download, and add the word 'torrent' beside it. If people have uploaded it, you can download it easily.

Hmm if you want to download torrents, I think the most popular search engines are torrentspy, torrentreactor, and piratebay for just general stuff. If you plan on looking for fansubs then just go to the subber's website to get the torrent.

Honestly bittorent is the best way to get most of your needs. It's fast, easy and convenient if you know how to use it properly.

Yes, I prefer Azureus (correct spelling), it's great and allows multiple torrents to be downloaded. Easy steps are, download torrent from website, double click torrent icon and a screen will pop up if you want to add it to your list, ok it. Just so you know Dramas (especially HD) take massive time to be done (2-3hrs+), but quality is much better. And it's free! Just do you know, It's a bad idea to play online games, like WoW, and Starcraft, Warcraft etc, with them on, it laggs, not sooo bad, but it laggs. It's ok with WoW, but people will choke you if you're doing it in SC and WC (Starcraft + you guess yourself :P).

Everything is better when downloaded, I for one talk alot in this forum to kill the time, and to tell others my thoughts. So, it's good to have lots of time, and you can download torrents from the fansub group's website, plus you get to know a little bit of the staff sometimes and how fansubbing works.

I think it takes lots of work, but sometime some of them are waaay to slow, and probably have too much of lives to be fansubbing.

Also downloading relieves from speed subs that suck, good subs = makes the series better. Speed subs mostly suck, so downloading is my opinion, plus some groups have issue's against uploading their work, so look out. Theirs may be good, but you can't always see it on CR (with their fine work and not bad uploaded speed subs).

Easy to me, and hopefully easy to you! Just have something else to do.

Everyone who suggested uTorrent is dead right. Its the best one out there because it uses a different format, I definitely suggest it.
