Limewire Complaint - Limewire and other users need to do there part!
HAWAII -- Limewire is the best sharing program out there! For some parts yes I agree. But if you go to Limewire.com right inside the green bar you'll see it says, NO SPYWARE! NO ADWARE and NO TROJAN HORSES! Like all the big companies who are making millions and don't care about the consumer Limewire is no different. The fact of the matter is it's so easy to get a virus on limewire. I'm not talking about music files that they've got covered and very well I might add. I'm talking about video and program files. Let's say you type in under the video category "drew carey" wow look at that not even half of it is about drew carey. it's all just asx files that are the same size duplicated 11 or 12 times. Now most of us who have been working with computers know the size of what a certain program file should be. Put it this way, if it's not in mb's then it's a virus. And the scary thing is if you don't pay attention and you download a virus and you don't have the right protection YOUR SCREWED! that's depending on how bad the virus. is. Even on Limewire Pro finding the right file is a pain in the ass because most of it is unwanted crap that has nothing to do with what your searching. Limewire is responsible! And i strongly recommend that you don't buy limewire or limewire pro. If your not getting what your paying for then they don't deserve your money. The other part of the blame is the millions of online users who purposely put viruses on the p2p network. There's no need for it! If those people had viruses on their computer they'd be frustrated as well so what's the need for it? It's called "empathy" putting yourself in someone elses shoes. If your someone like me who knows a virus when he sees it on limewire then continue to use it. But i think it's time that everybody associated with Limewire do their part.
