It's just as safe as any other P2P in terms of security. In terms of safe with law that is another question depending on how and why you use it.

Carefull on to how and why you use it AM but generally BT is better than other P2P clients. You use google and you try searches like "torrent", "download torrent", ".torrent", "torrent files"

its difficult to explain, I use bitcomet it has websites listed on the left, you download the torrent file, from one of those websites to desktop then while the host client bitcomet or whatever u use is open, you open the file you just downloaded, select the files you want and hit ok, it should then appear in the client window and start downloading.

Edit: youll learn quickly after a few uses.
