I use limewire and it seems to work good, not as many viruses and spam as on Kazza. I'v also used bearshare thats also a very good program.

For all my "legal" downloads I use:
WinMX

And for anyone that uses P2P or Torrents you should also use this.

I would google the name of the file and see if there is a safer way to obtain it.

what do you mean by "It like asking to have a bad person inside your computer"? can others access your pc by just using the p2p program?

some files you download have viruses in them that open up back doors into your computer that allow ppl to access your computer. i don't really know a hole lot on viruses but i belive the virus that does this are called trojins.
