    thats because the music does not get deleted, just the program. nobody uses limewire anymore, everyone has moved on to frostwire because limewire has too many issues. frostwire is basically the same exact thing, it just has less problems and is open source.

    [edit] by the way, limewire and frostwire themselves do not give you viruses, its what you download that gives you a virus if you are not careful.

    I'm assuming this is the new limewire 5. Anyway you can change your search view via one of the buttons in the top right hand corner, it gives you the option of viewing your search results in classic view which is the one you should click on, and the second button is list view, which isn't so good.

    Also try using the advance search option in the drop down menu next to the input box where you type what you want to search for.

    Personally I think that all they did with this new limewire was that they made it look a bit better and tried to confuse the crap out of us by moving things around. I would suggest that you download the previous version as it is better and less complex.

    And for the second part of your question, it still keeps the music there, because when you set it up either you or limewire set a download destination folder, which is not related the the limewire program folder, so therefore when you uninstall limewire it ignores what you have previously downloaded.

    I hope this answers your question.

    Good Luck.

    The music is still there because you need to go to Documents then limewire then saved folder and then delete the songs you don't want anymore. To me nothing wrong with Limewire or else they wouldn't sell it. the Cops would have put an end to it. Plus were all just sharing music nothing's wrong with that.

    To be honest Limewire sucks for me, it always screws up with my computer.

    If I were you I'd just ditch limewire and find other sites to use that doesn't involve downloading, file2hd works fine for me and I use it for all of my music.

    I wouldn't use limewire at all anyway. If you want a virus on your computer. Than your on the right track. If you don't, then don't use it.

    I use Ares Galaxy but it "glitches" sometimes. I had Frostwire also and i recommend ares or frostwire.
