    Well I installed it, seconds later I had norton informing me of worms, viruses etc, explorer.exe (hmm), other exe files

    Next up it destroyed winsock, couldnt use the internet AT ALL

    I tried using ad-aware then, 80 spyware files found, JUST from that install...

    Next up I rebooted, windows wouldnt load anymore, it did but start etc didnt come, at all, ctrl alt delete, task manager, nothing showed up, except exe files like net.exe net1.exe and so on...

    I tried new task, the entire thing froze, had to redo my computer

    FUCK IMESH

    Imesh has been years dead. Don't waste your time with it. Go the mule.

    K-Lite, eMule and BitTorrent (and possibly Soulseek) - They're all the ones you need.

    I wouldn't touch anything else with a barge pole (but then again, I was thinking that two weeks ago with eMule & BitTorrent )

    I use Shareaza on occasion. Over a year ago maybe 2, I installed an iMesh client. My experience was pretty bad. Had to run AAW6 and Spybot S&D alternately 4 or 5x with a few reboots in between.

    thats kinda odd -are you sure you got it at the orginal site(not a fake one)? I used imesh in the past on my old comp and didnt have problems except spyware.
