Limewire is good if you're a not dumbass who just downloads any file he sees. I've had it for over a year, and have no viruses.

+1

Torrents are not a good idea if it's just a few songs you need, as this requires port forwarding etc and is too much work.

I suggest trying frostwire, it's limewire but it's open source, just watch the file sizes to make sure you're not getting anything dodgy. if it's over 2000kb it's generally safe, the most common virus size on limewire is 192.2kb or 228 kb. Just watch what you're downloading.

so..basically scan anything before opening, i have virus protection, so i should be fine?


No, just look at the bit rates, and the file names. Just hover your cursor over it, and see if it shows the length, artist, genre, etc.

If it's a 4,278 kb file, and the bit rate is something ridiculous like 500 then it's probably a virus. Also, there are the files that are like "MP3," which are a bit dodgy.

i used to have limewire but it broke so i use torrents now. limewire is really unrealiable for me but torrents download pieces from everyone who is seeding it after they downloaded it.

in other words, the more people who have downloaded the file you want to download the faster it will go.

Same here. My sister just informed me that her computer has spyware AGAIN, because she's one of those dumbasses. You can usually tell it's a good file if it says the album, song title, length of song, artist, ect. when you scroll over the file. Also make sure it's a realistic file size for a song, like 5000 kB, not 48 kBs. If you do this you should be perfectly fine.

Limewire usually detects corrupt files, well mine does anyway, it says something like "this file is corrupt, would you like to terminate connection?" or something crazy like that.
"If you don't show it, I cannot grope it."

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.."

That's most likely your antivirus program
