Default Re: Limewire

How about you stay away from things you know you shouldn't be downloading in the first place, like p0rn, .exe files, games, and software in general. Stay away from same size files, and anything that looks government related. Then you should be fine. I download lots of music and things of the sort, but for g4mes, you should use Bit Torent. It may be slow but it's worth it in the end.

There isn't any spyware on the limewire program itself that I know of, I have the pro version. If you use it mainly for downloading music you should be fine.

My advice would be to use torrents. That way, if you get a virus, at least you know it's your fault, not the spyware from the software :P

We're talking about limewire here. Youd get a virus if you downloaded a .exe file from it.
