Default Limewire is out of whack!

When i start up limwire, the window just turns white. But if i click out and click restore its back to normal. Then if i click something nothing happends. But if i click out again and click restore again, its at where i clicked. And then if i try to shut it down, my whole comp locks up. Yes ive checked for viruses, defraged,scandisk. hmm, i dunno if you can understand that but whatever lol. PLEASE HELP! I cant live without my music!

PS, yes ive tried reinstalling it. Dident help.
Thanks ahead of time!

check your system for spyware and whatnot. Personally I think you should find a better program for p2p.. Limewire is very untrustworthy.

well wot p2p software does have viruses on, and the only reason ya get viruses is coz ppl dont look at the file size, eg some ppl download wot they think is a full song wen its only like 15kb or somthin

Java is dreadful :P

Limewire does that sometimes... just download a new version from the site and use it! It will get it working, even if it doesn't have the Pro features :P Then you can download some versions of Pro and make sure they work first.

Not that you should be downloading Pro!
