What is it?

xolox is a file sharing P2P software

It depends on "legal"? If you download a freeware programme or pictures that the owner has distributed then it is legal

However, if you try and download the latest chart hit, then no its not legal

Any P2P has a risk of a Virus

Ok....its a file sharing program similar to kazaa but much smaller,and supposed to be safe.

Xolox states that all files are scanned for virus`s ,is this just bull***t

  User-312386 21:26 26 Aug 2003

well if you want to download something, then do so and afterwards just carry out a virus scan on that 1 file

I have used winmx & I know people that use it a lot as far as I know its safe to use.

I dont use it very much as I am not on Broadband & find the files take ages to dload etc

Hope this helps
