    Is this program any good? I am looking to install a P2P program this weekend, but I do not want to use Torrants at this time. I might in the future. Thanks for you advise and opinions.

    Shareaza is a piece of Cr@p, try frostwire if you want p2p, or just go for a bittorrent client.

    Because A) it's full of spyware B) It's a leech client, which is the reason it's been banned by lots of torrent trackers

    I've used it for 2 years and I had to say it was the best although I only tried WinMX and Shareaza.. Than I tried Limewire PRO and I thought that was better, Than I tried torrents in conjunction with BitComet and I got my max speed all the time!

    What P2P software will better to use to download large files such as videos and movies? Frostwire or Shareaza? I guess this is more of an opinion question, but that is what I am looking for since it does not appear there is a clear cut answer.

    What? Shareaza is not crap, it's pretty good. Has support for Gnutella 1 and 2 and eDonkey, while advance users may hate it it's fine for a novice user.

    Great way to get busted when you choose the latest film or some music put there by the MPAA/RIAA cartel with the specific intention of gathering your IP.

    ALL these p2p applications are obsolete.
