    What is the best file sharing program that people have found to download MP3's that do not use spyware or adware? All i want is Mp3's and nothing else. Please let me know. Thanks.

    The first thing you need to do is download a bit torrent downloading program, like Bit Tornado or Azeures.

    Then goto a big bit torrent site, like mininova.org.

    Then you search for what you want, ie Family Guy, last nights Daily Show, etc. Download the appropriate torrent.

    Choose destination you want the file to be saved to and... wa la.

    If you have problems connecting to torrents... read the help section. It actually helps.

    Limewire is the best cuz you can give it a pumpkin theme. But if you want bit torrent, what ev, what ev. I think that saying will catch on pretty soon, just gotta say it enuf.

    The problem with bit-torrents is that you hardly ever get single mp3's. You have to D/L the whole album in most cases :(

    Yeah me 2, you really miss out on a lot of real good songs if you don't download the whole album.

    *copy/paste*

    "This is bittorrent

    It's basically another P2P program and its the rage nowadays. Download this program if you're going to use bittorrent:
    Azureus

    and

    Safepeer
    Safepeer basically blocks most IP's that tracks what you're dl'ing and etc.

    Here's a guide to configure Azureus:
    Azureus guide

    If you're using a router, here is a guide to help configure it to Bittorrent to maximize DL speed:
    Router Guide

    And one thing, if you're using a pretty old computer (say like 4-5 years old), you'll probably only have 512mb ram, Azureus will freeze up on you because it takes up a lot of the mem usage. If so just use uTorrent which doesn't freeze up at all, download speeds may be lower but not by much.

    And I use Ares to dl random songs really quick.

    Gl, don't get sued! :bigthumb:"
