    This will give you a link to download Morpheus, which allows you to download music as easily as Napster, but also Video, Pictures, Software, etc.

    Just a warning about Morpheus... be VERY careful when you download programs. I got a little giddy when i found out I could get any computer program ever for FREE, and started downloading left and right. A few times, I would double click on the setup icon, and nothing would happen. Not thinking anything of it, I would go on my merry way, only to find out later that I was installing DAMN DIRTY VIRUSES on my computer. It wasn't until later that I found out I had three different viruses on my computer. I'm in the process now of scanning all my wanted files for viruses, and then backing them up so I can wipe my hard drive. That's an extreme way of doing it, but since I don't have that much on my computer to begin with, I figured it would be better than paying 80 DOLLARS A VIRUS to have them removed.

    So, yeah. Downloading programs is a tricky buisness. Probably better off buying them. It's probably cheaper and less of hassle as opposed to having to deal with those DAMN DIRTY VIRUSES. :D
     
  7. winmx is very good. Pretty much same layout as napster, but you can find just about anything.:D

    I totally agree SuperDuck ive had alot of similar problem when downloading software, but the rest is fairly safe and I havent had any trouble with it. And dont go with limewire theres alot better choices
     
  15. I'm currently using AudioGalaxy for MP3 and Morpheus for videos and misc. audio files(like the Ghostbusters theme tune:D). I get lots of good stuff this way. Never tried WinMX.
