Hello Jane,

Hachimist is totally correct and wise in his warning! I personnaly ceased to use Limewire for it is a virus and pirate nest.

Always watch out for supposed free stuff on the net.

Thanks Hachimist!

Good luck Jane

Limewire is a p2p program. . .

so your heard right limewire carries many virus and other malicious files but i personally use it.
so when your using it don't download any files lesser that 5kilobytes(exe,txt,inf)

And use a Anti-virus,Anti-spyware which i think you already have. . . .

any alternatives? i can tell you really want to download free movies.
then try torrents like uTorrent,Vuze its like limewire but more powerful

Sites you can search to "Google"

Use it at your own risk if your not confident in you anti-virus capabilities then don't use it
