Default Need help with P2P Networking and WMP

I am experiencing slower performance with my Windows Media Player. Also, I just recently removed malware from my computer. I removed Limewire after finding out it spreads spyware. Do you have any suggestions on safe P2P Networking if possible for mainly music?

No just Windows Media Player. I was thinking E-Mule but I don't know much about it.

Get Azureus. freeware Program, get it here. It's an awsome
torrent program.

Now, with limewire I would suggest that you use it. It also is another cool program, but there is spy ware and viruses. How to avoid? By not downloading a music file that's 812kb, thats probably a virus. A music file is should be about 1,000kb, etc. If you want, you can also get a program called spyware blaster here, this will not let any spyware come in, in the first place. It's not a spy ware scanner, or virus scanner, just keeps it from coming in. Spy sweeper is also a really good program keep it.

I disagree. Limewire is not the best thing to download music. iTunes is.

Discussing illegal downloads is not a welcome topic around here unless you are looking to get blasted. We prefer to NOT break the law.
