    The file he`s trying to download, is the open office programme. It is free and perfectly legal.

    Prevs. Go HERE and try redownloading it, via a different mirror.

    The reason for the size difference is because of some discarded bad data. If you double click on the torrent it will show the stats, i bet if you add the discarded data to the file size it will come out close to what you have downloaded.
