Has anyone done a microsoft anti-spyware scan with bearshare? did you notice it uninstalls it because it is harmful to your computer!

Well it all depends on what you download. I doubt the program in itself has anything wrong with it but the viruses that people upload into the files is what makes P2P Applications suck.
