    I don't think that Shareaza comes with any spyware

    Dont do that!

    Hi Devian!

    Dont install more than 1 anti-virus in a particular machine...as that affects the Registry Keys under HKEY_LocalMachine > Software > Microsoft > Windows > Current Version

    Moreover, evry file executed (sent to Memory) is scanned twice if both the anti-vrus progs are running...and that reduces system performance.

    And let alone, the conflicts that occur b/ween the anti-virus s/wares...
    Regards
    Anuj
    PS: Symantec Products are the best, as always. Go for NAV.

    1. You can do that, but that would create conflicts and plus would degrade system performance.

    2. No shareaza does not install any spyware of any sort n your PC. Infact it is the best p2p app after BT, e-donkey.
