Hello coolking13 and welcome to BC.

Have a look at SpywareInfo's Clean and Infected File Sharing Programs for a great list to let you know what is safe or not. Also, if you have a Router you may need to map some ports to get an acceptable download speed. Personally, I like WinMX and Shareaza, which use two different types of technology to accomplish the same thing.

You may want to take a look at some of the links referenced in this thread. Any p2p app has vulnerabilities that you need to be aware of. Good Luck and above all Be Safe. And as Leurgy said Welcome to BC :thumbsup:
