It doesn't mess with your computer. It does install a couple of spyware programs called "Save Now" and "Weathercast" which does not do any harm. I just disable it and if you have firewall, it won't go through if you don't allow it to go through. Other than that, I love it. I download a lot of stuff including movies, music, games, software of any kind.

Kazaa sucks. It's basically a portal for spyware and adware. BearShare is ok. Ares and Ares Lite are pretty good, but the user interface is pretty hard to get used to though. LimeWire is probably the best.
