Hey ya'll I was told by my step daughter that there is a program that grabs all the files from movies that people post or link to and puts it in your desktop in a folder. I may be mixed up or have just described it wrong. Can anyone clarify please?

Maybe you mean a torrent client? A file-sharing application?

It's called KODI, formerly XBMC, that was the acronym for X BoxMediaCenter. It is not a torrent client nor a file sharing program. It is perfectly legal to use. I have it installed on a Win7 laptop connected to my big screen TV.

Torrent clients and file sharing applications are "perfectly legal to use" also.

Of course they are legal. It's not the software, There are perfectly good reasons to use it. It's merely the questionable activities users often engage in, in using such software. That has contributed to the bad rep. BTW I have never seen nor read of KODI being associated with questionable activities.
