Hi,

I am looking for a good music sharing programme after trying most of the big ones such as Kazaa and Limewire and finding that they are riddled with spyware. Does anyone know a good programme that isn't or is that too much to ask?!

Thanks

Morpheus 2.0 is out, but I'm using 1.9 and it seems OK, although the results aren't as good as they used to be...

I know Morpheus has spyware type advertising on it etc. Limewire seems to be the best choice at the moment as it doesn't have very much. I don't understadn Limewire, they claim they don't have spyware on any of their programmes but then if you want to pay $9.50 for LimewirePRO it comes without any spyware..... :?

I am asking as I am trying to work out which one to recommend to a friend who is very new to everything, I think introducing Diet Kazaa will just confuse them even more.

WinMX looks like a good one, I will try that and then run Ad Aware!

morpheus has an option not to install the "spyware type" stuff...

I know, they all seem to offer that but the advertising programme Morpheus uses is spyware related.

WinMX has no banner/ads and Ad-aware (lastest signature file) has reported no spyware Very Happy

One of the best features I love :
-- Multi-sourced downloading for maximum speed on broadband connections (continuously seeks out new download sources) Wink

Btw, I'm receive no commission from them LoL Laughing

Diet Kaaza is the answer.
install both Kaaza and Diet Kaaza, spyware will remain disabled Wink.
btw, Diet Kaaza work with Morpheus and others also Smile

Kazaa Lite, it's the best I know. I do still get the odd pop-up & my firewall reports some suspicious activity, but it's clean otherwise. With a great selection of music, IMHO.
