“i met my baby mum on their”

Written on: 30/12/2013 by Jaeare (2 reviews written)

Yes some songs are dodgy, yes some woman on it are prostitutes but if you use your common sense you'll find that it is a good free dating site as long as you're not a creep. Remember speak to people as you would in the street and not like a pervert. I met my babies mum on Bearshare she had limewire (same program different names)I'm still with her 5 years on , so to sum it up IT IS FREE 100% and you can meet people on their you just have to be patient- remember all good things come to those who… Read Full Review

“BEARSHARE FREE MUSIC DOWNLOADS - NOT!!!!!!Oh dear!!! I...”

Written on: 02/04/2011 by Hungandhungry (1 review written)

BEARSHARE FREE MUSIC DOWNLOADS - NOT!!!!!!Oh dear!!! I can only imagine that all the reviewers on the other sites must either be employed by or some relation of a BearShare employee. After extensive internet research, I concluded that with the demise of Napster, the "next best option" would be to download BearShare. How wrong can one man be???!!! Other reviewers assured me that there would be no issues, i.e. no compromise of download speed or conflictiions with other programmes. It transpires… Read Full Review

Certainly not Bearshare. It will sneak into your computer and you won't know it. It's not a virus-style thing, but it can do a number on you...

Don't even think about it! I have good security on my laptop, but after downloading BearShare I had to wipe my drive and reload a lot!
It is a Fungus among us!

“This software is far too intrusive. After installing...”

Written on: 13/03/2011 by Woltato (1 review written)

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… Read Full Review

Took over just about everything...had to wipe hard drive, even with secure settings. Not worth the "free".

You can specify it not to start with windows from the Menu>Tools>Preferences at top right. You can exit or sign out the program from drop down arrow at top left where it says sign in.Read the FAQ before posting assumptions. You get options to decline all extras on installation. Read before you click.

Written on: 27/12/2007

I have been using BearShare since they switched over to a monthly service. I thought I would just try it for a while till I found something better. The problem I cant find anything better I like. For 7.95 a month it is a great value. The down side is you need to convert the files into mp3. Over all I like it and the selection is huge: www.bearshare.com… Read Full Review
