As posted in the old one, I use Limewire primarily, and have the BT client for other stuff as required.

This has *NOTHING* to do with wireless networks.

@fun4now - you must go to the correct subforum (from the main forum screen - scroll down some).

re This topic - no preference (use very little of it/them), but Vuze is "out there" (used it once) and it appears to be Sun Java-based. Works ok and seems to "find" peers pretty well.

Wow utorrent is very popular. But it can be expected for something that is so small, free and just works!

Haven't used any of them since I was badly burned by a virus while using Limewire - the virus slipped thru Norton 360 and destroyed my laptop. Luckily most of my business-critical files were off-line at the time but it still cost me untold agony recovering my personal stuff like irreplaceable photos of parents and grandparents.

Are there any peer-to-peer programs that are actually safe? I now use ZoneAlarm Firewall as well as Avast, AVG and Threatfire anti-virus programs, so I think I'm fairly safe - but it would still be nice to have peer-to-peer software I could trust!
