    I just tried to download Morpheus and my Avast! virus scanner kept blocking it (Win32Down). Has anyone else had this problem?

    Did you try grabbing it from more than one DL mirror?

    BTW, any P2P client will open you up to all sorts of nasties...some folks have a habit of embedding virus files into songs, pics, apps and video files, then offering them for download.

    I'd say that idiots (lusers who open every attachment in their Inboxes and OK every popup) and file sharers get 90% of the viruses I see.

    So be careful.

    Your AVAST! is a good proggie; if it senses danger it is probably not kidding.

    You do know the other dangers of Morpheus, correct?

    I strongly suggest you read this and this , since file sharing of copyrighted media has not been legalized anywhere I know of, and so is fraught with dangers that go far beyond viruses, to lawsuits and beyond.

    Read all about their glorious attempts to outlaw backups and freedoms here...

    Good luck,
