You download the torrent file and once the download is complete use the MD5 to make sure that both the files you have downloaded and the ones hosted are the same.

Depending on the file type you could open it with freely available programs.---A good bit-torrent is ABC-it's based on BitTornado which is a good client in itself except ABC is more user friendly.

What site are you using just out of interest>?

It should be in the folder where the files are downloaded to. It checks that both files are the same and not corrupted.

I don't really use bit-torrent(only have it for linux distros) so that's why I asked-so I could go find some movies or anything else.

BitTorrent itself, imo was the absolute pits. It was hellishly slow (I have 1Mbps broadband), and you couldn't even pause the download or minimise it to the system tray. This was the latest version, btw.

After discovering just how awful it was, I tried Shareaza's built in BitTorrent client, it's so much faster (even by Shareaza standards; it sure ain't the quickest) and finds more sources. And it can be paused, and minimised to the tray.

Try it instead.
