I doubt there would be any kind of life in our solar system, primitive or advanced. Europa does have frozen ice, but it is way too cold for it too sustain life.
Earth seems to be in the right place to support life, between Venus and Mars.
If any life was to be found I think it would be in Mars, since Venus is too hot.
Mars is the likely candidate for couple of reasons, it is the closer to Earth, only planet which sustains life and it has likely evidence that water once flowed there.

earth has such vents and thewarm water is capable of sustaining life at epth where scientists had thought nothing could live as no sunlight penetrated this far... so could it not be possible that Europa has similar vents...

I didn't add Earth, because its a given that ET life is already here. Yes, Antarctica is certainly a nice spot for an ET hangout.

If carbon based life forms live elsewhere in our solar system, I believe they would exist on Europa. One thing not mentioned on this thread yet is the gravitational effects of Jupiter on it.
Would we even recognise it if we saw it? Who knows where it could live, too. It might be living in the asteroid belt, it could live on the sun, we just don't have enough information to be able to make a judgement.
