"Version 2.4 was better, this version is just slow"
The program is a good program, connects to 3 different P2P networks, and has large range of files. It used to be light and functional.
It automatically adds your My Documents folder to share.
It automatically starts hashing of your My Documents folder
Buttons become non-functional because of the hashing.
It AUTOMATICALLY adds your My Documents folder to the shared folder list. Why? I always had the impression the My Documents folder is a private folder with personal and work files. Nothing to be shared there... Then I try to remove it, but the hashing has already begun, and it seems to use up 100% of the CPU (Pentium 4 Prescott 3GHz). So the buttons in Shareaza become not functional (because there's no CPU left). Boy what a mess...
So now I am uninstalling it and re-installing version 22.214.171.124
Version 2.5 is a disappointment
