I like Kazaa Lite. It is free, ad-free, and spyware-free.

Aside from Kazaa having some very shady business aliances with spyware companies, their connection and search protocols are nothing to admire. Not to mention that the interface just blows. But that's MHO.

I mostly use kazaa. I don't have to worry about virusses because avast antivirus scans incoming files automatically.

Kazaa is an easy way to find files fast, dont get me wrong i use bit-torrent also, but there is alot of music on kazaa that you cant get on bit torrent. Also remember that if you download a file thats a virus, that's your own fault, you cant blame the network.

Have used kazaa, morpheus, grokster and imesh.
Or are there other reasons why my PC is failing.
Am using Norton AV and IS - but not v. happy - it detects adware which it won't delete!!

Ares and LimeWire are the best since Napster!
