File sharing services

Since winmx shut down some weeks ago, I lost my downloading capabilities. Are there any decent file-sharing software services still out there? If so, are they gonna devour my hard drive with spyware? I'm honestly pretty clueless as to what's out there, since I had been using winmx for a while.

I'm not out to rip any artists off, I just have gotten into the habit of using those programs in the past to hear new music, find rare/live stuff, and occasionally get a copy of a song that I'm trying to figure out on guitar.

Any recommendations would be appreciated, as would any warnings about particular software to avoid. Thanks!

I use Limewire and Soulseek.

Nowadays though I'm too lazy to even run the programmes; I just go to google and hope that someone's got some mp3s on his/her webspace. Mp3 blogs are my friends.

Youre sure you have the newest version? when slsk starts to act like that on my PC its usually because I need to update.

i'm sure i don't. they come out with a new version way too frequently for me to be bothered updating. much easier to complain than to do something about it.

Limewire has always been great for me. Very easy and very free.
