    I'm not sure how to fix your current problem, but I am here to tell you to be careful when downloading things from P2P networks. There is quite a bit of CRAP loaded on those networks, and it can screw up your computer quicker than you can say "Oh NO!"

    BTW

    yes i agree with poertner_1274.

    I know alot of people who have used Bearshare, and it has eventually ruined thier system.
    That goes for any p2p network.

    BTW. Welcome to Techspot.

    in short... i don't think they will

    to be fair i use p2p myself but only as a last resort when i can't get something over http, which probably isn't always much better but so far i've been pretty lucky with regards to malware

    i know this may sound dumb is there anyway to know which files are unsafe to download for example should i look out for any file extentions which could be potentially harmful????

    In the defense of P2P. I've been using p2p since Napster first came out and I've never had a problem with my PC. I currently use Bearshare with absolutely no problems. I understand the Lite versions package Adware such as Zango. I've never experienced anything malicious.

    As far as Bearshare keeps closing. GOOGLE THE ERROR MESSAGE.
