    don't download Limewire...more spyware and intrusive stuff than you would even imagine...I would say learn how to use bittorrent...it's not hard...and worth it cause you help people by being on it...also beware with too many p2p questions...just make sure you don't talk about anything illegal...

    i use bittorrent a lot. i was going to try to use a p2p to find random things but maybe i should avoid it.

    Bittorrent or Shareaza (eDonkey and Gnutella networks). Get rid of Limewire and scan for spyware if you've already installed it.

    Acording to the RIAA that is not legal. They don't take any excuses when downloading .. This is the reason I try to screw them anyway I can .. :)

    Download what you want, what is the % of getting in trouble? Very slim. Unless you are selling it.

    The only P2P program that gave me no problems and found what I am looking for was Ares, which I used for downloading music. I have now gotten rid of it, and use Torrent programs for everything.

    That is true, limewire don't have any spyware. It is however a resource hog. Mostly for the fact that it uses java, which is another program I hate with a passion ..

    Yes, very true. Limewire has no spyware (thats maybe why its becoming more and more popular by the minute?)

    I remember that Limewire had spyware at one time. Now it's advertised as not having any. That's good.

    Same, I know a few people that use Limeeire or the old KaZaA Lite (no spyware) to download songs AND manage there library. Obviuosly they aren't into computers as much as we are cause I couldn't stand using a P2P client for lbrary management.
