P2P. ZA is death to such applications. And its memory usage while using P2P is enormous.

I'm using ZA with ICQ, MSN Messenger and Yahoo Messenger without problems. I don't know about the resource issue.

These are Instant Messagers and not P2P software (altough they do connect in the P2P way,but this is not the issue).
P2P software uses hundreds of connections which kills the ZA as they kill cheap hardware routers/firewalls.

The only one in that catagory that I've ever used was Shareaza and I've never experience any prob. with it.

I was talking about eMule. ZA rejects amjority of connections and gathers huge garbage leak in its modules. Sometimes even simply dies and terminates/blocks all traffic. Its a very good firewall for normal web usage,but for any kind of P2P,it simply sucks. Even if you get High ID connection you get 2x less sources then with other firewalls.

I used my mates old ZA v4.5 with Winmx and it worked fine, mabey you were doing something wrong?

Or was you using that junk they call Kazza?

One word. Emule. WinMX doesn't nearly close use such massive number of connections as eMule does.

DC++ uses stupid share size limit and WinMX is mainly for music and its also not as good as LimeWire (they both work on the same network,Gnutella 1).
Kaaza is history for me. eMule is best balance of all P2P clients. You can get everything including some really ancient things like 10 years old games and music that everyone forget about it today...

Well i only use p2p for music, so im fine with winmx, i don't download games becuase there easy to virus (you can tell if a music file has a virus by its size on winmx), also my mate (against my advise) downloaded norton 2002 pro from there and it was virused beyond reconition (like i said it would).

Kazza just puts spyware on you and so does DC++.

Winmx doesn't anless your stupid enough to download it.

But i have never used Limewire, i take it is is good?

That's why I mentioned Shareaza.
No adware or spyware.

Shareaza connects to eMule clients.
