Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why should I chose Ares?

Ares is currently the most popular and robust P2P (Peer-to-Peer) program available. It is already available for Windows 7, as well as Windows Vista and Windows XP.

Sorry, at this time we don't offer Ares for MAC or for Linux.

 

Why would I download from this web site?

Ares.com is the oldest existing website related to Ares. You can download through us in confidence that you are safe from Adware, Spyware, viruses, and deceptive business practices.

Ares.com offers what we believe is the best (perhaps the only safe and working) Ares product for P2P, giving you peace of mind and access to millions of shared files, including music, video, and pictures.

 

Why is this product not free?

The original Ares was free, and open source. The creator of Ares found out the hard way that such a popular product requires quite a lot of maintenance and support to keep millions of users online and satisfied with their experience; this can't be provided without an adequate infrastructure.

So when you pay for this product, you are ensuring that you will have a successful, satisfying experience - or get your money back. You are paying to have the best product and the all the support you will need.

 

Is there a "free" Ares?

Yes, there are several "free" versions of Ares out there. But we say "free" not Free, because you are paying indirectly:

  • The original Ares web site offers a free product, but often it does not work at all, and it offers no support
  • Several websites offer a "free" Ares download, but these are riddled with spyware, adware, and viruses -- so you pay in the end when your identity is stolen or your computer crashes (or both!)

So, while there are "free" versions, there isn't a version that won't cost you one way or the other!

 

Where do I find support?

You can find support for Ares here.

 

Is this the right Ares?

"Ares" is a fairly common name in the Internet, both as an acronym (i.e., initials) and for many things inspired by the Greek god, Ares.

I can't connect!

If you downloaded your Ares from this web site, just go to the product support page. If you got your Ares somewhere else, I'm afraid we can't help you - try going back to where you downloaded it from.

If they can't (or won't) help you, maybe you need to switch to a more reliable, trustworthy company and product -- us! Go to our home page and get started by clicking the "download" button.
