Unhappy Safety. . .

Ok, so I am kind of paranoid about getting a virus or a bad download or something off of a shareware program.

I have had a windows pc for a while and have always used soulseek without much problem as far as I can tell. That computer has become kinda weird though.

Now I'm on a mac and I'm loving it. I don't want to risk polluting it. What I'm wondering, I know this program is free of adware/spyware, but what other risks are involved in file sharing networks, other than legal ones of course. I mean could I severely mess up my mac or anything?

I'm on the verge of just buckling down and going eMusic but I don't think I could stand limited downloads. . .

Thanks in advance for any answers on this relatively vague and probably overdone topic.
