Use the junk filter in FW.
- Load up Frostwire.
- Click on Tools - then select Options in the drop down menu.
- Navigate to Filters and press the '+' sign.
- Select Junk
You are now at the junk options screen. Here you can select the manner with which junk is displayed, and the severity of the filter. Choose which suites your personal choice best, if you are not sure test each option yourself.
When you have chosen your settings click
Now search for the file you wish to download.
Once the download is complete, look at your results. If it is a song the usual file size is between 2,000-10,000 KB (approximately) for an mp3 file, so if a file appears in the serach as 136.1MB this is not an mp3 file - it is most likely malware.
- Move your mouse pointer over the infected file and Right click, a menu will appear.
- Move mouse pointer down to Mark as a second menu will appear to the right.
- Left click on Junk.
Frostwire will now remember this file as Junk. If you continue to do this with unwanted files in your serached Frostwire will learn which files you regard as junk and label them as such.
If you have selected FW to display the junk files they will appear in your searches with a grey bin under the Quality
column. You now know which are junk, and which are not. If you have selected FW to remove the junk files from your searches they will not appear in your search results.
