    Tip number one: Your ISP like the daily growing numbers of them is probably blocking it. You ARE after all, stealing media! ISPs are now being encouraged to block p2p. They may also warn you if it persists and if you continue, they are required by law to turn you in after 3 warnings.

    It's ur Firewall & Anti Virus, limewire is connected 1000000 computers who knows what they have on them, u see limewire has "no files", each computer that login on to limewire, is sharing it's shared folder, that what it is a file swapping site, when u request something limewire searches all the computers that's login to find it, & when it does it download from the computer that has it, then it download t u. So beware, what's in ur shared fold, because limewire taps it when ur login
