Therefore do not expect any help with this enquiry at this forum.
The only advice I will give if you do go this way, for heavens sake make sure your anti virus is up to date
did i once say that i download copyright material - No
did i once say that i download cracks - NO
did i once ask for a link - NO
i simply asked which one is best from an operational perspective. As i have already stated, i am not new to computing and the internet, i have AV that checks for updates once an hour as well as a highly configured firewall.
Before people with an overblown sense of self importance start quoting site policy (its not even your site mikef) please read the post properly and do not take it that everyone that uses peer 2 peer is a spotty oik who is out to rip off the world!
liveD Backwards, sorry, I can't offer any advice on which is best, I don't use one myself. It's a shame really because P2P seems to be quite a useful program to have. [From the little I understand of it].
As you say you don't need to use it for the download of "Copyright" material. But the guy's are right in saying that they all seem to bring unwanted things with them.
Whichever one you choose, be careful and make sure you keep your anti-virus up to date. I'm sure you know, as a regular user of the forum their are many pitfalls for the unwary user.
Essentially what i am asking it, if there IS free stuff out there that is legal to use and presumably you must know it exists in order to search for it, wouldn't it be safer to download from a website than anonymous P2P??
