    We've never dloaded music from the Internet, but we'd like to. What I need to know is what steps do we take, what programs do you suggest, and how risky is this regarding viruses? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    MP3 files to my knowledge, have no capability of transmitting viruses, so that risk is minimal. One place to start is MP3.COM, lots of free music to download.

    Further to the above - avoid Kazaa at all costs if you get involved in file sharing due to the spyware. Try Kazaalite. As regards players / software to manage your music colection once you get going try here :

    http://www.audiotools.co.uk.

    Anything downloaded from here should be virus free but check for spyware.

    Someone else told me to try Kazaalite.

    Now, can someone explain to me what spyware is?

    Thanks in advance.

    It is basically an item placed on your pc to monitor surfing habits and supply pop up ads.

    If you have any specific questions re Spyware etc - I suggest you post it in the Security Forum at this site.
