Yeah, if some others are willing to help, I'll make up a page of all prgrams, not just antispyware.

I might also post something up on my blog and website.

Here is a great list of GOOD vs. bad P2P type programs. This was just recently updated by Mike..the owner of SWI, and our very own ScHwErV! :tazz: I guarantee you it's an accurate list!

If you must use this type of program, please at least use one of the safe ones!

:tazz: However, don't ever use P2P without commen sense, for it could get you into trouble with the law. ;)

exactly my point! :tazz: I personally don't support the use of them at ALL, but if you choose to do so, please at least choose one that is free of Malware.

Click the link I gave in my first post above, and read that. It tells you which programs are safe to use.

Another question about P2Ps is is usage, I mean there is no point in connecting up to free of malware one simply to find that you're the only one on it. Could someone here give me an idea about which one is biggest. Come to think about it there are other considerations: firewall compatibility, user friendliness, needed information, etc., anyway the more info exchanged here the better.

Me, I was on Shareaza until I got a lowID router problem :tazz: now I am using Ares which is OK becauase I never use their surf pannel but I am looking for something else because "Tout en Anglais" gets dull"; besides, it's good to change P2Ps after a while
