Some share files that they don't have the copyright for - beware...

What files are you looking for?

i use lime wire as a "shareware" file sharing site, (i use the paid version)
this allows me to recive and send files over the internet and you can pick up absolutly anything out there, However you really need to be clued up on your security to prevent virus, trojans etc being installed on to your system, i have used this for 2 years now and i will admit it has caught me out a couple of time due to My stupid mistake of not cheking a file before i opened it.
My advise.. stay clear if you dont understand the dangers.
go to www.download.com for "free" trial and shareware "clean" programes.
if your after the more "ahem" dubious stuff...your on your own good luck and back up.
