Redownload is a start. Maybe your firewall is blocking the prgram use because it may be considered "Potentially Unsafe"

Also try reinstalling Java, as Limewire relys on Java to run and operate properly.

You have to be very careful what you download on limewire
its full of crap.

Ohh and Nice comeback joelbeveridge,

I would say Bittorrent is more consistant

If you'd take a moment to actually think about it, before insulting john, Limewire hogs memory, sometimes can be painful to get a download and so on. Bearshare Pro or Lite would do it, but you sometimes won't find the song you want still, but it's much more stable than that Limewire thing that just is a Memory guzzler. And Bittorrent rock, okay? That's the right way to get Gigabytes of OSes and games.

BTW, if you guys chose a P2P, make sure it's connected to the Gnutella network, not emule. If you want to know more, ask on this thread.
