Emule would appear to be one of the better ones for not having spyware, but the real problem with P2P downloading is in the downloading itself, because there is a very distinct possiblility that your computer will be infected by a file, so take extra precautions when using any P2P application, and make sure you update your anti-virus on a daily basis.
