Looking for a good ad/spyware free P2P client

Title says it all I guess. I've heard Kazaa is infested with spyware etc, so what's out there for decent P2P clients that aren't going to make AdAware freak out?

I use overnet, all its spyware is optional at install (You don't have to install any of it). It uses a single banner ad at the top of the window while it's open. It can be minimized to the taskbar when you're not using it and you can even just go to the install dir and make the html ads blank and write protected if you want to block the ads.

Another vote for Newsgroups. Either your Internet provider has a decent newsgroup already (Verizon's is pretty good) or you have to subscribe to a premium provider.
