    A swift delete and reboot and the computer is usable again.

    I thought I had read somewhere that it was intended that others could upload from your PC, in the same way that LimeWire works. I am happy to be proved wrong though
    Well in the way limewire is p2p primarily the iplayer is p2p + server downloads to save bbc costs.

    Flash is at least one way.
    You can turn off the sharing.

    The main problem with iplayer and one problem i had today was teacher had a video and needed it, but the video had expired and they don't understand why they cannot use it no more.

    Where is that option hidden then?
    You can tell it not to share when the tray icon is not running but otherwise it shares.

    The flash iplayer is different to the download iplayer, the flash iplayer interface is in beta now but I dont think the download quality/software is changing for that.
