Issue 105 of the magazine mentions a few. I tried eMule but I never got it to actually download anything.

mirc, bittorrent, brturbo, emule, grokster-- take your pick, and take your chances

ONe alternative is to actually buy the software,music,films you are downloading...........

well i would buy it but what im after is not available. I have the original grand theft auto game but it doesnt run on xp and i tried to download the xp version from click here (the official site) but i think you have to live in the US to be able to download it. Obviously I would rather not download P2P software. Ideally I would like to download it from the site, has anyone in the UK managed to do this??

sorry, i meant to post this link:click here , not the one in my last post

you could try shareaza which does not seem to have too many probs except a number of files are not what the purport to be.

I have only just downloaded the desktop from Kazza and don't like the thought of virus's. How can I get rid of the software safely?

Secondly does Kazza leave any spyware on my system?

Are the alternatives posted above any safer?

Many thanks

key bored, if you go to click here and type in kazaa you will find downloadable program that supposedly gets rid of all the spyware etc

Thanks crx1600 but I tried that and couldnt make it work. I only found a US adress box to fill in (zip code etc required). Did you fill it in with a UK adress??

Kind regards
