Sharing files with friends, relatives and others on the Internet has become commonplace, as downloading and uploading data is one of the fastest ways to exchange information. One method for sharing data is called peer to peer. Peer to peer simply means that someone uploads data and someone else downloads the data at the same time. This type of exchange is described as a “torrent” file, where stored information is shared with others in accordance with certain rules and connection requirements. This article describes how to download and install the BitTorrent® application which is required to use, download and manage torrent files.

  2. Click on the green “Free Download” button and save the file to your hard disk.
  3. Locate the downloaded file and run the installer by double-clicking the file. If your operating system asks you for confirmation, click on the “Run” button.
