Avast has a P2P shield.

It has, but it only supports these P2P programs: Kazaa, KazaaLite, DirectConnect, DC++, WinMX, LimeWire, BearShare, BitTorrent.

Doesn't Shareaza use and create the same "incompletefilexxxxx.DAT" file extensions like KaZaA Lite when downloading files? If it does, it should not matter what the program name is called correct? Just as long as it's similar?

*grrrr*  >:( ..... I have never been able to get Shareaza to work anyways!  :P I don't know how it creates files... and with what extension.

We will be adding support for those, but most likely only for Windows NT/2000/XP systems... Sorry, but it's really pain in the a$$ to make this working under Win9x / ME... :-\


PS, Steele (sorry, off-topic), you're from Nome, right? What's the weather like today? What's the lowest temperature you've ever had there (or that you remember)?

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.
