before it will be law, so try it out. It is certainly ad and spyware free. You can get spyware free versions of Kazaa and Imesh if search hard enough.

If you go to:

click here

You will find a site dedicated to all the programmes about music downloading.

I have downloaded stuff that has had viruses in them. These are usually keycode generators and my anti-virus (AVG) has caught them everytime.
About whether or not it's illegal to download, well, technically it's illegal to download software but so is copying a record to a tape/CD. How many of us do that? You have to keep perspective. The Police and Law courts are not going to spend time and money chasing home users who download a few songs to play for themselves. There are simply too many of them. No, who the Police are after are the people who download thousands of songs to put on CD's then to sell the CD's.

Thanks, so its safefor now to download a few songs now and again is this programme really spyware free?

  Billy911 21:46 15 Mar 2004

Yes it's spyware free. I have Ad-Aware and Pest Patrol scanning my system for spyware and nothing has come up for WinMX.

Yup, Winmx is cool and spyware free. Been using for a couple of years now.
Tip: Be sure to scan your downloads with your anti virus afterwards to be extra safe :-)

It is not legal to download and share copyright music. However click here for a good file share without any spy etc

It's also possible to run kazaa,without the spyware.
