I've been using WinMx now and then for maybe 5 years; not an expert but I rarely have any problems. But today my mp3 searches produce all sorts of hits along with the artists I was looking for. For example, John Mellencamp, mp3, any bitrate, all available networks, any connection.... I get all sorts of unrelated songs, artists and mp3 titles that contain all sorts of goofy symbols and letters -- the kind of names/titles you get when searching for bootlegged movies, games and apps, not music, which I normally stick to. Lots and lots of them, along with a handful of what I was looking for.
Usually, the first few seconds of the search results in what I'm looking for for, then the screen fills with the junk.
This has never happened before. What gives?
Windows XP. WinMx v3.54 beta 4, community patch 1.0, thanks Eagle.
