    Hey,

    Ive used bittorent and newsgroups for a while...i dont ever download single songs anymore, i download the whole album..

    The problem is that now I am looking for a few single tracks and I'm scared to go back to p2p programs like limewire and kazaa and such. Its also been a while sence ive used programs like that, because im scared of getting viruses.

    Whats a good p2p program for mp3's? Something without fakes and such.

    Thanks

    Does it have a good network? any fakes?

    I stoped using kazaa about 2 years ago cause of the fakes

    My main worry is viruses, and all the shit that comes with p2p programs like limewire (or used to come with, its been a long time sence i used a p2p like program)

    Ares is good also but limewire is fast , don't listen to me search this forum . I find Shareza is bad for trojans but my roomate swears by it .

    Shareaza gives you a nice all round multi-network option (ed2k, gnutella, and g2), and can also be used to download torrents..

    I can't see why it would be bad for trojans

    make sure to download lots of files that are named .mp3.exe i hear they are much better quality or something </joke>

    you cant get viruses from media files since they dont actually execute anything. just make sure you get the latest version of wimamp to stop any buffer overflows and your safe as houses.

    I dont know of any way of spotting fake files so i generally download a few copies until i find a decent one. then again i have only got one or two fakes off ares in about a year so its not that bad.
