Kazaa is not safe. It loads spyware when you install it. Limewire is free
and has no spyware. It is safe and free despite what another poster has
said.

Butthead,do you have tunnel vision or something?
What the "other" poster was refering to as I read it is that any program
which allows someone else access to your system can and will have flaws in
to exploit.And the possibilty to exploit them and gain access to the rest of
your system is (may) be their.Think of the larger picture.

*ANY* P2P software on your computer is a security risk.

There is no *SAFE* P2P software available.

LimeWire is no safer than Kazaa.

There are P2P sharing programs that are indeed spyware free.. so they are no
problem in themselves.. but what about the files that people download?..
apart from the legalities of downloading certain file types, there is the
problem of what is contained within the downloaded files/zip files..

The bigger issue is that the files that are being shared may also include
viruses, spyware, etc. And there are viruses that seek out the typical
shared folders and plant files there, with enticing names. So those become
available to other people to download.

Thanx Mike.

And the above is the reason why *all* P2P software is banned in many corporations and all

Hi
The free program includes adware, you have got to pay for the clean version
As an alternative try this

You read way to deep into his answer. From what you are saying we might as
well just stay off the internet because any kind of connection is
vulnerable. You don't have to share your files with Limewire.

We use "Patchlink" which is all hype but I have no say so in what they buy.
It does not detect Trojans or spyware or P2P.

Can't tall you, and can't tell you either if Kazaa is entirely safe or not,
just heard a few stories here and there about it. Try WinMX.

Yes it is completely safe and I use it all the time. I use it to download uncle Bill's products free of charge. I have not encountered any problems as yet!!! i love it and can't live without it.

You should also use skype for free telephony to other skype users or cheap calls to global land and cell phones. The author/owner of skype is the same guy who issued kazaa which brought uncle Bill and music industry to their knees!!

Long live kazaa and long live Skype!!!

We have recently received a number of complaints about abusive and
racist posts to some newsgroups from someone purporting to be
member of staff at Birkbeck College. These posts have *not* been
posted by any member of Birkbeck staff and have in fact been
forged by someone who clearly has some kind of grudge against the
college.

We apologise to anyone who has been an unfortunate recipient of
this diatribe. We would like to make it clear that the recent
abusive posts apparently a member of our staff are forged, are not
from Birkbeck College, and do not reflect the opinions of the
college. It should hardly be necessary to note that the postings
conflict with the College's regulations, and everything that the
College has stood for since its original foundation in 1823.

We are taking appropriate steps to identify the person forging
these messages and are in communication with newsgroup
administrators and the ISPs to which this person has subscribed to.
