I am afraid that these P2P softwares are a threat to the security of my files...are there any answers for this..?
well..... not just p2p software but most of the freeware contains some kind of ad ware. ad ware are used to monitor users' surfing habits and send targeted ads; they can't be considered a real threat to personal security. for example, a lot of fuss is made about kazaa ad ware when it is not that big a deal.
not many people know but morpheus and audiogalaxy have adware too.
do u know that latest version of Kazaa has come up with the option where u can also delete adwares?
yeah dear u can use Kazaa for this purpose....I have been using it for a long time...and u can trust me for that.
KaZaA Media Desktop regularly downloads an index which contains a list of available rights-managed files and can in no way alter KaZaA Media Desktop or any other part of your computer. KaZaA Media Desktop downloads this file without collecting any information about you or your computer.for more details u can log on http://kazaa.com/en/privacy/privacystatement.htm#Anchor-Altnet-47857
Get WinMx it's much better and has no AD Ware. Also get the free software AdAware which finds Ad Ware on your computer and deletes it if you want. Be careful though as some applications won't run if you delete the Ad Ware that comes with it.
thanks for the good suggestion ... i hope i will also find it useful
