Ares is a file sharing software tha is based on P2P networks.

File sharing between users is very common since the Internet became popular among users. When we talk about sharing files, we mean file sharing using P2P networks. A P2P network refers to a group of computers connected between them. The files that we download from a P2P network are located on other computers on the network.

Ares Galaxy (this is the full name of the software) has been in the market more than 10 years, since it made its appearance in the middle of the year 2002. This software is one of the most used and downloaded for share music, videos, images, documents, etc.

Using the program is very simple since we can make searches of what we want, and look for it according to the file type: audio, video, document, image, etc. In every search we do we can use filters like: title, quality, resolution, date, author, category, etc. In this way, it is easier to find what we are looking for and get only those results that are most relevant.

We should be careful with files that are shared. As a general rule, the program uses a folder "shared files" in the "home" of our Windows user. In the "filesharing" option located in control panel, we must mark only those folders that we want to share, so if mistakenly we mark a directory that we don't want to share, this will be shared and other Ares users can download the directory files.

In more recent versions of the program, in addition to the usual downloads, we download .torrent files, because the program includes BitTorrent network support. Another interesting feature offered in the software is the ability to chat with other users of the program. We can configure our profile by choosing a nick, uploading a photo and introducing additional information we want. The style of the chat reminds the IRC format.

Finally say that Ares includes a Streaming service in which we can display some TV channels, listen to certain radio stations and play a limited number of movies.

Ddownload file that we offer here is clean of viruses and malware, since there are plenty of installers on the Internet that include some sort of adware in the installation.
