    BTW, If you had installed Kazaa make sure to run an Adaware SE & Spybot scan for spywares

    Hey guys, I tried Bit Torrent on a 512 Kbps connection, and ur so called "Extremely good transfer rates" translates into 2 KBps - 5 KBps...

    I suggest u use
    Imesh 4 or Imesh 5 (beta) ( http://www.imesh.com ) (or)

    Morpheus ( http://www.morpheus.com )

    If you want small files, then eMule is the best. Its fast, free, open source, no spyware and you almost always get anything you want. Only problem is while downloading large files (>600 MB) you often end up with a p0rn movie instead :p

    For large and popular files I recommend using IRC. Search the forums, I once posted a link on how to use IRC for downloading files.

    You probably have a crappy connection i.e. one that is not setup properly, it is a well established fact that BitTorrent is king when it comes to large files and fast downloads.

    Well my old time favourite is still Winmx however currently i have started using Limewire : this later one is also quite good and has no hidden adwares or other instalations on your PC. :D

    Also, i think you need to have a good updated Anti-virus, Firewall and adware scanners before you start using any P2P softwares.......

    About kaazaa: i dont know why so many people still like it quite good, its has got quite a few irritating links with it and when i removed kaazaa these don't get deleted. :cry: any thoughts about this from anyone??
