<_< I have Bearshare and while using it my computer locks up. Its like I can't recieve any info but I can't do anything even off line till it unlocks and sometimes it never unlocks. I can't do anything including getting the windows task mgr to come up. I have to turn off the computer. Everything seems to be ok then nothing. I have adware, xoft, evidence eliminator, zone alarm, avg. I run them often and have no virus or trojan horses. My computer memory is excellent and if I can get my task mgr open while I am locked up it shows 0% cpu useage. Now sometimes while playing music it locks up for several minutes but usually clicks back in. I have removed bearshare and installed 4.5.594 that is supposed to work better with zonealarm but that didn't work so I reinstalled bearshare pro. What do you think I should try..

...Ok, if you're not familiar with most P2P Sharing Programs, most free ones consist of hidden spyware applications. To get rid of this, get Spybot: Search And Destroy, which you can find at: http://security.kolla.de/. And if you MUST have a P2P sharing program, try Soulseek or Warez P2P, Warez and Soulseek can be found at Download.com. I use IRC for my download needs though, but whatever floats your boat <_<.
