    Does barshare connect to any other networks than gnutella? Thats what I like about ares, because it only connects to the ares galaxy network and thats it.

    all of them P2P sharing programs have spyware up the ass. you guys should be smart and learn how to use torrents. they dont have near as much spyware and you rarely get corrupted files. It is also allot safer. download utorrent from www.utorrent.com and once thats installed. then use www.thepiratebay.org to get your programs, games, music ect.

    I hate it that Limewire copies two of the same file on the computer.

    Then you got to go back and delete the 2nd one.

    You might get more information and responses,if you had posted this in the P2P forum.

    Maybe you should suggest to a moderator to move this thread.
    In answer to your question,i think limewire is excellent but does give you a piece of spyware,which is easy to remove.the spyware is called"stub installer".
