Unless something has gone horribly amiss, Gnucleus (an open-source gnutella client) is spyware/adware free.  They only 
have a windows client, though. Go to http://www.gnutella.com/connect/ for a list of gnutella clients, then google it, 
like 'gnucleus spyware' and see what comes up.

Depending on which version you are using....there may very well be spyware 
involved.

Hi,

Just wondering on thoughts about download managers-do they pose are
security risk? Any known to be trojaned? The one I use is GetRight, does
anyone know if this one has known security issues?

Any thoughts appreciated, thanks.

Leon
