As the title says, whats the safest to use. No Spyware etc crap...

My friend insists on using such programs, but I don't trust them.

Any ideas.

Limewire doesn't contain any spyware, but any of them will allow you to download viruses that other people share. Tell him to scan whatever he downloads with a virus scanner. Common sense wouldn't hurt either.

lol.

Without common sense (as 79 said) you run the risk of downloading malware/viruses through any medium including email. But, his suggestion is your best bet.

shareaza?... its so so... last time i checked it didnt stand a chance against emule or utorrent (which -in my opinion- are the best, bman... no bundled spyware or anything and both very reliable to use)

if your friend isnt too into computers, tell him to get a good av with good real time scan and to be careful with what he downloads... maybe google some newbie p2p guides

Thanks, I got them Limewire, and showed them how to scan them everytime they get something with AVG.

Hopefully they keep it up.

shareaza uses the edonkey network, but also uses gnutella (which imho sucks, and thats why i didnt recommend limewire)

and for ed2k only, emule is the way to go

bittorrent client of choice + Peer Guardian 2 + NOD32 = Good Combo
A peer guardian rc is out for vista that works really well. I would also scan everything possible before opening.

Antivirus' are only as good as the person clicking things on their computer...

I believe you can program this program to access any of the peer to peer networks, it's also a bittorrent client
