Im not sure if it's the best but I use Limewire Ive been using it for awhile & have had no problems with it. As long as you have an anti virus program running with it it can scan the item you are downloading & detect any viruses. It's been good to me :]

I likewise used to download from Limewire before, but I shifted to utorrent for faster downloads. In terms of an anti-virus program that could complement your file-sharing program, though, what would be the most effective or best one, among all the anti-virus softwares, free or otherwise? Thanks a lot and happy myLotting, cachitodemialma! ;)

Hello! I've been using Limewire for quite a while now and so far I haven't encountered any problem with it at all. I find it easy to use and I like the interface. I did use Emule before as recommended by my hubby, I didn't like it as I found it hard to establish any connections. But I still use Emule whenever I need to download some programs or tools are they have a lot choices. I think I like both of them. Limewire and Emule. *smile* ciao! c",)

I'm likewise a client of Limewire and Emule before, fab315. I fully agree that Limewire could easily be figured out by anyone wishing to download any file online and its interface is actually nice as well. Emule, on the other hand, is like a repository of rare files, which I could easily scour through, whenever I'm looking for a file that I have a bit of trouble finding in other sources. Nevertheless, as I've previously mentioned, since I could download a file faster in uTorrent than Limewire or Emule, I naturally opted to shift to it. So far, I have been using it for quite a while now and I haven't encountered any glitch yet. If you want, give it a try so that you could really see the difference. However, I suggest that you also try to check out the different P2Ps that various great posters in this particular discussion would recommend, since theirs may be better. Thanks to your excellent post and Happy myLotting! ;)

Hi acmepride. I think DC++ (I am using Blue Zion++ 2.06, a client for Operators, because I have many accounts), or you can use StrongDC or PeerWeb. Also BitLord is a great way to download new things. ;) :D

Thanks a lot for the great suggestion, TheGreatMaster! Would you say, though, that Blue Zion++ 2.06, StrongDC, PeerWeb, and/or BitLord are better than uTorrent, specifically in terms of download speed? Among your suggested P2Ps, which to your mind, is the best, not only in terms of download speed, but also in terms of security, and overall functionality? Thanks again and Happy myLotting! ;)

I use Ares personally because Limewire has too many popups and trojans and virus's.... Ares I have never had that problem and they are just as good if not better! Easy and quick to use! One good thing they dont mess up the way you file your music or play your music!

Ares seems like a very nice P2P program, fallenangelteegra. If I may ask, though, in your own approximation, and based on your experience with Ares, how does it normally take to finish downloading, say, a 1mb file? If it turns out to be really fast, I may perhaps give it a try. Thanks a lot! ;)
