    Kazaa is full of evil gator spyware, Kazaa Lite is no longer available, so can anyone recommend a decent Peer 2 Peer application that gives access to reliable downloads, a decent sized user database and NO evil spyware?

    well, since all p2p are basically illegal, you might as well go with BitTorrent instead.

    The actual program of Kazaa is not illegal, it's the people that are sharing copyrighted material that is breaking the law. You could try "Shareaza" or "winmx" depending on what you want.

    I know and since there is really no way to get things for free legally, you might as well go with the best, and that's BitTorrent IMO.

    Kazaalite is still available but u have to pay, but you can still get it. Try this little 2 step trick:

    1. Download and install normal Kazaa
    2. From normal Kazaa download Kazaalite

    There ya go!

    I have Kazaa Lite 2.1.0 build 2 (KPP version). I can send it if you have an inbox capable of 3MB plus (ie ISP email address).

    Kazza lite is still around, just most of the original websites have been taken over by ones you have to pay for. I downloaded it (version 2.4.3 or something, the last released before it disappeared) just last week.

    Also if you want further p2p advice http://www.zeropaid.com is a decent site, at least when I used it some time ago.

    calumc, looks like you downloaded it in the nick of time

    The Lite version is much, much, much better than the Sharman one

    For reliability I would recommend emule http://www.emule.tk and maybe DC++

    You receive a lot less fake files with emule, it's a lot slower than kazaa or DC++ but in my experience I feel that all that extra time you search for a legitimite file, you might as well search on emule and download it using that. In fact, it has saved me time on many instances.

    BitTorrent site : www.suprnova.org . It's free, but I frequently get slow d/l rates as it's really popular at the moment.

    Normal P2P : www.limewire.com . Like Kazaa (Some spyware installed! But easily removed). It's look ok so far; I've only been using it a while.
