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.

What sort of file is it?
You can highlight the file, go to the menu bar>file> open with>
then choose the app you want to use.

Or do a get info (+I) and, under open with select the app that you want. If you click "Change All" it will open files with that extension with the app you selected by default.

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".
