all this time i have been using kazaa to download my anime music/videos... now with the new version and its active/annoying gain/other spyware, i'm serously considering changing to another program...but i don't know which is better for downloading anime stuff... and that doesn't have that spyware problem as kazaa..

can you recommend me a good one?

...and remember, your dreams are the wings that will help you fly ~m^_^m~

Well, I'm using LimeWire, which is basically the same thing as Kazaa, minus the spywares and fakes and plus Open Source, but if you dare try something new, I recommend BitTorrent, wich is great for bigger files. I dare not speak very loud about this, tho- I've already seen the reactions discussions like this one tend to bring form the owners/admins of the board. Basically, BitTorrent is a client (I assume you don't know very much if you you have been using Kazaa up until now- no offence meant) that you install in your system, and then you download metafiles from a "tracker", which is the server that keeps track of all users and files. The metafile is just a couple of kilobytes and when opened with the client (I recommend Azureus- azureus.sourceforge.net) it connects to all other users down- or uploading the file you're interested in. This means:
a) you can't avoid uploading in any easy way (without modifying the program that is)
b) the transfer is much more effective then the old way (for example in kazaa, Direct Connect or FTP).
Now you just need to find a tracker. (cough, gough, google, cough, "anime+bittorrent",cough), but rember that BT is not very good for small downloads such as single songs.

If you feel you're interested and want a list of trackers- take it on a PM or something, I don't want to get banned ;)

Note to any moderator/administrator trying to ban me for teaching people how to download warez: I actually don't. Many linux distributions for example are distributed this way nowadays.

Limewire is a good program, but I still w/ Kazaa 2 my musics...

Try downloading a program called eTomi. It surpasses Kazaa by a lot because it has no spyware and you get major search results.

I use Shareaza. It's a little harder to set up but it connects to several different networks.

I always use bit torrent, the only problem is more than half the people dont know how to use it and end up making everyone else lag.

Learn the several ways of Bittorrent. :D
There are so many sites you can get stuff off.

Should use Bittorrent for large files.
Smaller files, get something smaller like Shareaza, dc++, WinMX, and some others (can't find it)

I'm using a combination of Bittorrent (slow at times) and KazaaLite K++, which is Kazaa minus the spyware and such.
