I dont have experence with p2p over the internet. I have used p2p over a closed network. I would stay away from them, find a friend to get the stuff from, then you dont have to worry about the spyware and such.

WinMX certainly does contain spyware/malware. I am about 95 percent certain that Limewire does also. Soulseek is one that contains NO spyware/malware....

just try and understand the pyschy of the Winmx ....it never digs deep into your computer and hence no spywares ...on the other hand if u are using kazza then u will se many programs getting installed in ur computer in the process of installation...if u are able to identify and remove these programs ...i am sure there is nothing like kazza for p2p sharing
