    P2P software

    I'm thinking of downloading and using a P2P program and dabbling in this a bit, but I heard that a lot of the P2P programs have bundled adware and all sorts of nasty things.

    Therefore;
    Are P2P's so problematic that I should just leave them alone?
    Will I screw up something in my PC if I download one?
    What P2P program do you recommend?

    Thanks for your advice

    P2Ps can be problematic depending on which software client you use.

    No, if you DL a tried and tested P2P client.

    I recommend Ares because -
    1. It hasnt given me any virus/adware or malware associated problems.
    2. Large Network
    3. Uses less system resources (Memory and HD space)

    I haven't heard of Ares before, but I like WinMX. Here's a regularly updated list that tells you whether a P2P app is clean or not: http://www.spywareinfo.com/articles/p2p/
