Bearshare. Only 2 bundled software included (Save and Weathercast). Just disable those and you're all set. If you have a good firewall, you can block those.

disable them in the startup config (msconfig). You'll never see those pop up ever again. It's still there, but won't do anything.

Nope. Everything is perfect the way it was. You won't even know Bearshare is running. If you have a dial up connection, you will suffer a hit in bandwidth. If you have broadband, no difference at all.

Yeah, I was downloading a 2 hours movie that finished in about 1 1/2 hours while playing CS with 15 ping, bearshare is awesome! it will not slow down your comp at all, unless you have a uber old one.

I tried Limewire and I didn't think too much of it. I still prefer Bearshare over Limewire. As far as what processor to use, you need a minimum of 166MHz, so you should be ok.
