    Can anyone suggest some alternatives to winmx? I have heard about KaZaa but never tried it. What are the smart music downloaders using now? Thanks

    Kazaa-lite is spyware free and tons of choices for download.

    In my haste for free tunes I already downloaded regular kazaa. Do you recommend uninstalling it and pttuing in kazaa light instead? is there a discernable difference? Thank you.

    In addition , since you have the worst offender for spyware and malware installed on your system you should also download Adaware , update it then scan and have it fix what it finds..

    We have winmx and shareaza...I find shareaza is tons easier to use. I find winmx is a tad too techy for me.

    With shareaza you just search the file you want and select the download.
    The downloads aren't the speediest, but they restart automatically if you lose your connection or something.
    Also, when you fire up the prog, it connects to the networks itself.
    I don't get the Nap protocol stuff on winmx!
