I just need to say one thing

Firewall it!

Install ZoneAlarm or something similar and take control over your i/o ports.

b3d....

Bottom line...delete ANYTHING that has the term "b3d" in it on your computer. Installed apps, registry keys, folders...you'll find it's swarmed all throughout your computer. I found that out the hard way. Bad thing is, once you do that, KaZaa will crash. At least on XP it will. KaZaa refuses to run after I was able to remove all the stuff. And I did it with a program called Registry Cleaner.

Bearshare doesn't have spyware that I've seen...but some ISPs apparently don't support the p2p or something, because whenever I use Bearshare, I get booted from my PPPoE. ONLY when I use Bearshare.

I don't use Morpheus (hate that new engine).

Should be obvious

Anyone in Congress reading these forum? There should be a law governing disclosure of what software will do to your system when installed. The disclosure should be in plain English and allow you to opt in, not force you to install the software first and then go back to opt out of certain options.

BTW the Brilliant site has as a, er, glowing description of this technology in which they mention "rewards", which I assume are more of those worthless "points" applicable toward discontinued lines of blenders and folding scooters. I dare them to mention how much cash they would send me. Oh but wait the cash is for Brilliant, the worthless points are for the sucker who lets Brilliant use their system. Brilliant!

TIRED OF STEALTH CRAP? Get KazaA LIte!!!

OK, got so annoyed and paranoid with all this spyware crap did a look aroun for a new Peer 2 Peer. Instead, I found KaZaa Lite, which is basically KaZaa but someone has taken it and removed all the stealth spyware shit and left the very simple and powerfull kazaa itself. Trust me on this one, u should get it...it even connects a hell of a lot faster...

goto www.google.com and do a search for KaZaa Lite Download, and there will be a few pages offering (they are being taken down quick tho so hurry!!)

Hope this helps,
