Well, torrents are about 10 million times better, but I really don't feel like explaining seeding, leeching, .torrent files, and utorrent to someone who just heard about limewire.
So no you won't get in trouble for downloading limewire, it's the things you download with it. Cops mainly are targeting University students right now. You honestly have a better chance of getting struck by lightning than getting busted w/ illegal songs. Go for it. Just don't download apps with limewire. There is nothing stupider than that. Stick with mp3s and you'll be good.

Gutted you have a trojan horse
It doesn't filter out as you say because I know people who have uploaded Trojans themselves to get them to work on Limewire, and about 68% of limewire has trojans embedded within the files- Fact.

So yeah, Cops can't get you until you start downloading copyrighted material such as music- as Limewire itself is pefectly legal

Limewire screwed up my Windows Setup file, and as so, screwed up my computer. Apart from the virus side of things, Limewire is a great file sharing program that I used to use. In total I've downloaded about 560 songs. (Hey, I had dial up.)

Also, don't worry about the coppas busting you for music, but beware of downloading movies...

i used limewire for years...but recently got given limewire Pro for free on a cd....dont notice a big difference to be honest.
#27
don't download files which are

145KB = virus

or the files like Stephen Speilburg Prank Call and you will be fine.
#28
i use torrents as well...mostly for movies or new leaked albums...but limewire is still good for downloading songs that cant be found on torrents or just downloading a few songs.

+ 1 It's not that hard NOT to get virus. Just don't download any movies or zip files or apps and don't download those 145kb files. If you live in Canada you can legally download music off of P2P networks like Limewire, you just can't upload. And if your still afraid of viruses, then get Frostwire, it's Limewire without all the crap.

errmmm i've had limewire for a while and no viruses... but i'm well protected

i doubt im correct but i was told by a friend that they can only get you in trouble for making it availible for people to download, so if you're downloading stuff from limewire, not putting stuff on it, you should be safe. this is just wut i herd from a friend btw
