    Hi There...

    I currently use uTorrent and Direct Connect (occasonally lime wire but very rarely!) and i am just wondering if anyone can tell me the safest way to use the above programs...

    I have heard PeerGuardian2 is fairly good - Would you agree?
    Due to uTorrent (and most other torrent downloaders) allowing your IP to be viewed by everyone using that torrent is there anyway i can spoof my IP ?

    Are there any other secuirty issues/tips i should know? Thanks

    You should have checked the site rules. Won't find any help here.
