What version are you installing? I would check their site and get the most recent version. And I would get bearshare lite here is the site http://www.bearshare.com/lite and here is a comparison http://www.bearshare.com/lite/downloads.htm. Lite version does not have the bundled software. I would do what I call a complete uninstall of bearshare. What I mean by that is backing up your download folder and your temp folder. Usually the temp folder is in C:\Program Files\BearShare\. If I remember correctly when you first install bearshare and run it it ask you what folder to save your downloads. As long as its not in C:\Program Files\BearShare\ the download folder should be safe. Need to backup your temp files though. Then go to add/remove programs and uninstall it. Then reboot and delete the program directory for it. Usually its C:\Program Files\BearShare. I would empty your temp files and recycle bin. Ccleaner is a good program for that. Then I would run a registry checker like regseeker. I would then restart and get the lite version and install it and put back the backuped temp and download folders for bearshare. I would run http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and run sfc to. Cause this is strange imo. As far as a different program I recommend emule or shareaza.

Bearshare free version installs adware which brings spyware which can cause alot of problems, i have switched to using Limewire a much safer program to use Never used the version that you pay for before, so know nothin about it

O.P. RE: bearshare restars C
well as i said i tried a clean install, same thing turned out in the middle of msn with bearshre runnig in the background and then evertyhin went out
i'll just get rid of bearshare and stick to a new p2p thanks for all your sugestions
Didnt you make a thread about this before i told you that bearshare is very dodgy and i do not reccomend it to anyone i have had alot of troble conecting and then downloading things i suggest you get a new downloader try winmx
Samething happened to me when useing bearshare...i recomend you swap to limewire thats what i did and its very easy to work with and also easy to set up bearshare and theres another service made by the same company both are a bit worrying...go to limewire it rocks
