This software is far too intrusive. After installing it did the following to my computer - changed the home page to bearshare.com in all browers, installed a bear share media tool bar in all web browsers, added icons to the desktop, taskbar and start menu even though I specified not to when installing. BEarshare also autostarts when you boot up the system (you don't have any choice about this) and you can't shut it down other than forcing a shutdown through task manager. After un-installing my home page is still set to bearshare, the bearshare tool bar is still installed into the web browser and none of the icons have been removed. Had to get rid of them all manually and re-install firefox to get rid of the toolbar.
I have no idea whether it's any good as a file sharing/media download piece of software as I got too annoyed with it meddling with my computer before I had chance to start using it.
On further research I discovered that the bearshare toolbar it installs into ALL your webbrowsers that you can't get rid of is classified as spyware. Well dodgy, steer clear of this.
