Default your thoughts

Hi all, I have been using Bearshare-lite for a while and always understood it to be ad/spyware free. I used the free adaware and spybot at the time, which came up with nothing to report. I then bought GIANT A/S and it found a load of spyware, all relating to Bearshare-lite. I know this because when I deleted this crap B/S lite did not work. I then reinstalled B/S lite and got all the spyware back. Any opinions on this ?

Sorry Furgy, the question was why is Bearshare-lite advertised as ad/spyware free when it obviously is not ?

Oh sorry I thought you just wanted a P2P with no spyware lol
I don't really know the answer to your questions, Kazaa advertises itslelf as spyware/adware free yet it is clearly obvious that it isn't. Sorry, I haven't really got an answer, maybe some of the other members can help..
