You know a music scene is fucked up when it becomes difficult to keep track of who killed who, who committed suicide and who alledgedly engaged in cannibalism.

You used Limewire? If so, you had those viruses coming.


Amen to that. Here's an idea. BUY THE MUSIC.

I agree, torrents are much better for downloading music. You can download a whole album at once for pete's sake!
If you use LimeWire, use the Preview button frequently, to make sure what you are getting isnt porn.=]

You knew it would **** up your computer, yet you used it again? You deserved those viruses. Poor computer....

stop downloading porn, problem solved.

Limewire won't give you viruses, it seems more like you're accepting them.
It's entirely possible to use the program and stay virus free, you just have to understand how to use it correctly.

I buy the music to an extent, if I just like one song or know one song from a band why waste 10 to 15 bux on a cd if I don't give a damn about the rest of the songs on it.

Specific site or just google it?

No matter what you type into Limewire, the first result is always something about a cute girl having an orgasm.

I do buy the music. As often as I can. Of my 2000 songs, I own about 1000 songs now. Downloading songs is sometimes the only way i can get my hands on it, because shops don't want to stock alternative music.

Everyone I know uses that internet hooker.

Its horrible... use torrents or mp3 search engines
#23


If you're going to download a song, download the 3 - 10 mb's one. Don't download the 300 kb one.
If you're going to download Microsoft Office, download the 700 mb's file. Don't download the 300 kb's file.
I use Limewire from time to time, and never had a problem with it.
Use torrents. If what you want isn't on torrents, try with "Emule".

I use Audacity to get my songs, all you do is download the program and set it on stereo recording. The only drawback is that you can't do much on your computor cuz it picks up every sound that pops up on it and sometimes the song skips

That's stupid. You know you can search exclusively for music right? When you do that you filter out the porn, and I can't believe people can still get viruses off Limewire.

You have to be as dense as a brick to download something that doesn't look like a music file.

Though that won't really get you trojans and such, you get adware.

I didn't say that all I could find was porn. I said the first result was always porn, regardless of configuration. Read my post properly. Now do you have a specific site that I can get torrents from? Or shall I just google it?
#28
Maybe, just maybe you could do some research and get a P2P program that has built in anti virus, like Frostwire.
I say that in all these threads but it seems like the problem still exists...

You'redoinitrong.


If you're looking for torrents, try demonoid (invite-only site) or The Pirate Bay.

http://thepiratebay.org/

Also, you'll need a client like uTorrent to download the torrents with.

Yup.

Those don't eat up your RAM and live on your processes list like limewire.

ive downloaded hundreds of songs (and guitar pro) off limewire and no problems. some hints: if it says "_____ cute girl has orgasm on webcam" (it's ALWAYS the first one), it's a virus. and try to only download things that have a album title or track listing or something.

Indeed, torrents own. I'm downloading Mercyful Fate discography, and King Diamonds, and Helloween. The only money you will spend if you steal music via torrents is a 120g Ipod and extra memory for your computer.

www.torrentfinder.com = best site for torrents ever, compiles all of them in one place ^_^

well, you risk that. **** happens. thats why you listen to 80's metal rather than modern rock.
