View Full Version : Napster alternatives
07-25-2002, 12:34 PM
Right, I just had to run a recovery on my computer, so I lost every damn thing that was on it, including my Kazaa program. This was the best P2P program after Napster was shut down IMO, but after the recovery I can't download it again. My anti-virus program rejects the file and won't allow the kazaa.exe file to be opened because it goes under the definition of a virus program.
Sooo, except from Kazaa, what other good P2P programs are good...? Any recommandations people...? I really need a new P2P, but haven't been able to find any good ones yet.

WinMX is pretty good

Kazaa is my favorite :(. Should I delete it also? What do you mean it has a virus? :(
AK, I like Imesh and Audiogalaxy. Hope you find one soon, I hated being without one! :D

Thanx for replying people. I tried Soulseek, but it couldn't have been many members online, cuz I recieved few hits... I'll check it again later, thanx for the link Hellbound.
Michelle: Kazaa contains something called "Spyware" and can cause a major security breach if someone are trying to enter your computer... Kazaa is a gateway for hackers in other words, that's why my anti-virus prog refused to open it. You should delete it if you want to keep hackers from accessing your PC, but it's up to you. I used Kazaa for 6 months without catching any viruses, but my new anti-virus program won't hear nothing of it, hehe.
I need a program with many users, because I download a lot of underground music. I'll take a look at Imesh. Thanx for the recommandation Michelle.
morphues i think thats how u spell itits pretty much like kazaa

WinMX doesn't suck too much. I had Kazaa but it's just too damn slow. I suppose those of us with a cable connection don't notice that though :mad:

hehe those of us with cable connections think Kazaa is super fast (songs never take more than 5 mins) :p

Downloaded iMesh... the best one IMO of the ones I've tried... I'll settle with that one.

I had that before i got Kazaa i didnt like it much though...and yeah Morpheus, it's like kazaa I guess
Hope I helped
You can get a version of Kazaa without Spyware called KazaaLite, the website is www.kazaalite.com .
Audiogalaxay was the best but that's gay now, they don't have any songs on it. WinMX sucks. Morpheus sucks even more.
I use this guy's FTP for all my music.
