Is LimeWire safe to use? I have this friend that downloads off of LimeWire and he turned me on to it, last night. However, I'm not sure, if it's safe, at all. I want to make sure and would like input from the various members of UG.

Somewhat.
"Ultimate"-Guitar is the worst website on the internet. Polluted with unintelligent mongoloids.

What do you mean by "safe"? Are you at risk of dying? No. Could you get a computer virus if you're not careful? Yes.
#5
As long as you have some decent virus protection/spyware checker etc. then sure.

I swear if I see one more of these threads... I'm not kidding


Is snitching cool in the Pit

Why do so many people feel the need to be kiss asses and report someone?

And in answer to the question; yes, I've used LimeWire for 2/3 years and as long as you have some decent anti-virus software it's fine, especially if you have the Pro version.

^but there are two or three of these threads a day, I'm sorry I just have to okay?

that and I think it's quite obvious I'm having a pretty bad day anyway without this


There is a simple solution. And no, you don't "have to" report something.

DON'T GO INTO THE THREAD IF YOU DON'T WANT TO.

And if pettily reporting something on an Internet forum makes your day better...then...you must be pathetic.

kinda

dont download any file whose file size commonly pops up when you download music and its probably a virus if there are a few more with the exact same file size

The weird thing i found is that you can download limewire pro off of limewire
#17
Yes.


You just need to know what to click on and what not to click on.

Torrents are better.

Although I had been using Limewire for about a year and never had trouble, just get a decent anti-virus software

i use limewire for general searches, like if im a little interested in an artist and want to see what they have to offer

if i no what im looking for, its torrents all the way

Yea and that doesn't include people who just type in a song name and click every result they get without looking at it.

C'mon people!!

i've never had a problem with it. it actually alerts me to viruses attatched. if you just use it for music, you should be fine. if something seems to be taking a really long time, pull the plug.

1. Why do you care

2. If your thread was being spammed you'd be the first to report it (I know it's not his thread)

3. It's about illegal software which is against the rules, so he was well in his right to report it - you however are just moaning.
Filth, pure filth... That's what you are.
