Developers this week released a spy-ware free version of popular P2P app eXeem. The official version of eXeem, which entered into public beta this week, is contaminated with an adware app called Cydoor.

eXeem Lite 0.19 is smaller - 1.9MB compared to 2.5MB - and promises file trading without search hijacking and pop-up ad bombardment. Unlike eXeem, eXeem Lite is also available to Linux users (who need to run the app using WINE).

Enjoy it while you can. History suggests it's a matter of time before the developers of eXeem sue the developers of eXeem Lite - or try to exclude users from the P2P network. That's what happened with a Kazaa Lite, remember?

eXeem is based on the BitTorrent idea, but with nodes in the program taking the role of BitTorrent trackers. As the eXeem Lite FAQ explains, connecting to the network can be a little hit and miss. Our attempts to connect to the network using eXeem Lite proved fruitless until we applied a registry patch for eXeem Lite, available on MyeXeem. This updates the app with a list of valid nodes needed to establish a connection. The patch can be applied automatically on XP. But changes must be done manually using regedit on Win 2000 and Windows 98 machines. ®
