I like KaZaaLite, which I have used successfully till I reinstalled all the software on my computer. Now it won't work for some reason!!
Can someone tell me which are the most popular file-sharing programs nowadays, so that I can try another one?

... in fact there have been several articles on how to p2p in PC Worlds over the years - and programs for doing it on the cover discs.

my fault, its just that a question like this often becomes "why can i find the new spiderman movie on p2p?"

p2p is not a problem as such, it what it often is used for that is the problem.

sorry for jumping too soon.

Quite an extraordinary gesture for a computer forum.

Are you trying to reveal something to us Metla?

Whoa, its the self appointed sheriff with 22 posts.

Now, judging you completely on the content of every other post you have made here your not wanting a conversation, your not wanting to contribute to the thread or the forum in any way, Your attempting to be poke holes and stamp your foot.

I think K Lite is so good you should try it again... maybe uninstall and reinstall?

Sorry Metla, my mistake. I thought that under that irascible exterior you actually had a self-deprecating sense of humour and were trying to show it. I was wrong, I admit it, I apologise, and I won't make that mistake again.

I thought it was a joke as well. Just a tip Spence - use emoticons. They take the sting out of comments and can reinforce the tone. We can all misinterpret posts - as happened here. ;)

And as for the question, I use Kazza-Lite++ with no problems. But it is always interesting to hear of other peoples recommendations.

Do a search because I think this topic was discussed in the past 3 months.

I concur with that, noticed that pretty quickly myself.

Incidentally Kazaa Lite isn't as good as it used to be, the network is flooded with misnamed files, and corrupted versions of popular songs - so much so that for me and most people I know they spent more time downloading dud material than getting what they were after so stopped using it.

Thanks Winston, I'll do that in future. I didn't actually realise that little pictures were necessary to explain words. :D

Don't use them myself, but have 2 boys that do. Seems that the flavours of the day are DC++ and Shareza.

I would have to ask, but I think the Shareza can hook into e-donkey and Nutella networks. I know they mentioned that a lot of downloads from Kazaa were faulty or infected, so they gave up.

Your words were understood perfectly.

Your not half as clever as you think you are,a sledge is a sledge no matter what words you dress it up in.

DC++ is good if your on DSL, currently most ISP offer free national bandwidth with their 128k plans. There are several local DC++ hubs that only allow NZ traffic, meaning you can do all the downloading you want without breaking the bank.

What are the local hubs?
I know Orcon shut theirs down a while ago after the Herald gave it some bad press.

My Preferred programs are:

WinMX
TrustyFiles (Gnutella 1&2, and Kazaa networks)
DC++
eMule
Warez P2P (Don't mind the name)
