If your problem is not resolved by a search of the forums, please take the next step and post in the appropriate forum. There are many members who will be glad to help.

Any other relevant information that you think may help ....... Try to make your post descriptive, specific, and clear so members can quickly and efficiently help you.

Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Phex doesn't have any adware or whatsoever. It's a clean free good program.
And for the rest, just read through the Phex forum section here and then you will find the answers as well as you can ask the developers of the Phex clients, who are also the Mods in that forum section......

I have a suspicion this person didn't actually try the version of BearShare recommended by AaronWalkhouse. But Phex is a good program too.

If you don't like that either you can try shareaza. I never tried it but I think it's adware free. Or you can download bit torrent.

foolofthehill - Thanks. I went and checked out their site last night, seems all good. But just wanted to check, cause I have been told one thing by a company and they turned around and did another.


garbagefan2 - I tried shareaza awhile ago now. But the last time I used it it wasnt very good, I guess they may have updated since then. I might check them out also. Thanks

Sorry if I appear to have a bit a problem with your attitude; I completely agree with LOTR........you have only mentioned BS lite, but the version that Aaron reckoned (I have installed it by myself), works just as good as the other old BS versions before they sold out their company to the RIAA.....

That's the version mentioned:
Code:
If upgrade dialogs are a bother try
the expired beta 5.1.0b25 and use the BearStart utility to run it.
Besides, LOTR still gave you a qualified comment in regard to your query.
Being respectful to members, VMs, Mods, and Admins in a forum is not an option, it is a requirement.....
Bear this in mind for any further comments of yours......

What about members, VMs, Mods, and Admins all being respectful back, I found that offensive the way he put it, he has no idea what I have done or havent. I didnt intend to be disrespectful. But of course it never matters what my opinion is. I will find some help somewhere else. Good luck to you all

Thumbs up Download the BEST Free Version of BearShare!!!

hours at a crippled rate.

Vinnie just had to test his new weapon, possibly to show
the RIAA lawyers breathing down his neck that he could do it.

To protect yourself from future episodes of sabotage, I
suggest you switch to versions older than 5.2.anything and
never upgrade again. If upgrade dialogs are a bother try
the expired beta 5.1.0b25 and use the BearStart utility to run it.

This is the best p2p file sharing program i have ever used. Anyone who is a true sharer will also share this information. This version is GREAT!!! Anyne who tries it will immediately understand. Please spread the good news that there is finally a reliable P2P File Sharing Application!!!
