I used this a few years ago to get Photoshop......only thing I used it for....I had Limewire but was told to use Bearshare....(and today I still have my CS Photoshop)

10:08:10 Jun 24th 08 - Sir Revengee:

I used Bearshare

I found it slowed my PC down, and I think I can point maybe a virus in its direction
Its alright if you keep it for maybe a few downloads, but I suggest you get rid of it after maybe 2-3 weeks. It is better at getting Programs than Limeware in my opinion though
Limeware is proberly a safer way is you just want Music etc..

It's crap, my brother had this and used it against my advice.

Two weeks later he had to reformat his entire PC because it was so full of *beep* from Bearshare.

Now, part of this was him being an *beep* and most likely download porn with tons of viruses, but I've seen Bearshare and used it, so I know how it all works and I can tell you're better off without it. Maybe it's changed now, but I wouldn't risk it.

I stick with Limewire for all my illegal pirating needs, never let me down before.  (Only download songs from Limewire to stay completely safe, anything else and you will want to use torrents. I recommend Azureus/Vuze for this in conjunction with ISOHunt and/or The Pirate Bay (websites) for any torrent files you need. I myself use a paid torretn site called Torrent Leech, if you can afford it then I would recommend using it, but most paid torrent sites are hard to get into and enforce rules.

These rules are simply fair usage policy rules, if you download 5GB of data, then expect to upload at least 2.5GB. Basically, if you take X amount of information, then you are expected to help share X amount of that information after you have gotten it.

This results in extremely fast download for everyone, (Ever wondered why it took you 86 hours to download a film on some free torrent site? It's because people hit and run, they take the information and don't bother to help share it with others, which results in an ever growing number of downloaders and an ever decreasing number of uploaders.

There are many other benefits to using paid sites as well.

If you need any more information on torrenting then just ask below :P

That's from the Blacksite: Area 51 ad! :D

Bearshare is full of spyware. Dont use it and stay far away from it.

As said earlier, just use Limewire for seperate songs. For large files such as programs or games, use Torrents. Way faster aswell.

I tried to use it once but it killed my comp with all its spyware.

01:54:42 Jul 14th 08 - Mr. Zump:

I could never figure out how to use torrents and those websites like "The Pirate Bay"... Too many words with more than three syllables...

06:27:56 Jul 14th 08 - Sir Random:
