    HELP!! Downloading files
    Need help with my macbook. when I download a file and go to open it it opens with a Textfile, lots or rubbish writing. How do I set my macbook to open with the correct application and what would that application be. Will it set automatically for what ever type of file I download, any help would be great.

    I hope your not talking about an illegal torrent. If it's a legal one use Vuze (Azerus), Frost Wire or some other program like these. Just google "torrent client mac".
