I wanted to warn about the P2P worm. It is found in all sorts of searches on P2P. They are found in Zip files that only contain setup.exe. I believe the file size was around 800 ks.
The worm creates a folder with fake files and shares them on your P2P program. It also opens your program and shares these fake files infecting more systems. When you close your P2P program it will open back up.
This could be a virus created by those opposed to file sharing. But that is just speculation .
