Default Limewire

How many of you have limewire? Also, does it seem to slow down your computer? And has been known to infect computers easily when downloading stuff?

It's always copying info. to your hard drive and depending on what you do, it slows it down some but not too significant. I can see my hard drive light on constantly when I'm downloading something. While downloading, it doesn't get infected until you execute the file (if it contains virus or something).

Limewire is okay, doesn't slow it down too much, just have to be careful and have good antispyware/virus/firewall protection.
