limewire ****ed my computer up with the viruses


It's simple to avoid viruses, they're usually all around the same size in bytes.

theres no problem with limewire, just scan the file before you open it

ive had limewire for ages and been fine
#16
As long as you're sensible with it, LimeWire is fairly safe.

Don't download exe files, pictures or small files.

Ha, I remembered pirating LW Pro off of Limewire my first time. There's something strangly ironic, if not poetic, about doing that.

hey guys.. Ive been using Limewire for almost a year plus i think, ive downloaded say around 2000plus songs on it.. complete albums, DVD's... you name it.. it hasnt given me any problems since.. i guess someone said it right earlier, "Be Sensible With It" and it shouldnt give you any problems.. if not, ive heard about this one software called Bearshare, ive heard some good things about it..

Ps: heres a trick ive learnt, if youve only got Limewire Basic and want to go pro without any payments = use Basic, go to software/program (i cant remember what) and downlaod Limewire Pro. It comes in a Zip file, but shouldnt be any problems.. cool eh? ehehhehe.. good luck!
#23
I'ver had limewire for as long as I got my computer. 2 years? Never had a problem.

Just download Pro off basic limewire. :p
#24
I have a pretty solid program called soulseek. Its kinda hard to get used to, but really good for indie and less mainstream stuff.

I heard bit torrents were amazing, and seeing Limewire ****ed over my computer....
I just need to figure out how to use them.

Oh and threadstarter i'm having the same problem with the pit, its been going on for 2 days so far (for me).

I have both Morpheous (at home) and Limewire (at work). Morpheous has a bigger selection of songs than Limewire. Limewire may be a tick faster but thats probably because of my Cable connection at work. Both are safe if you know what you're doing.

Yeah I have limewire Pro, I used limewire to download it. its really good. I've had no problems and downloads go fast and great
#33
Torrents are the way to go dude. I don't even bother with limewire or programs like that because torrents are just superior in every way. Theres tons of different sites, tons of legit programs, tons of legit files. Its just great. A tad illegal, but great. Check em out.

i have been using bitcomet for a while now with no problems, and for the torrents i use www.torrentz.com, you can find almost anything there.


yeah, I use torrentz.com too. But you should use either uTorrent or the standard BitTorrent client.
