Default One last question about limewire PRO please?!

Hello, does anybody know whether limewire PRO contains spyware etc etc. This might well be my last post because I rather feel I am just pecking people's heads.

Just watch what you dowload. There are a LOT of worms on Limewire. I downloaded a couple with 851.7KB and I got screwed.

Yeah, don't download anything that is below a meg. THey are generally junk files and viruses. When you download something, look at the size. You know a huge program will be in the 200meg range or higher so that will be a clean download. Don't be getting stuff in the 1MB range if the software itself is much, much bigger than that. Sometime, you just have to use your best judgement and common sense when downloading files.
