Avoid Shareaza!!

I gave Shareaza file sharing program a try last night. About a half hour into using it I noticed one fundamental design flaw.....YOU CAN'T CONNECT TO THE INTERNET AFTER INSTALLING IT!!!!

Not only that but the unistall program leaves alot of the program files behind and my computer is acting up now. System resources are fluctuating a couple of percentage points, which may not seem like alot, but I don't like the idea that this program destablized my machine.

Just a word of warning....avoid Shareaza like the plague!

Hmmm...I've installed it, and and had no problems. Only actually USED it a few times, but it's been on my machine for probably 3-4 weeks.

Do you have Windows XP? If so try doing a system restore.

I have Windows ME, and the System Restore didn't help.

Windows ME is like a train wreck waiting to happen, I know.
