Exactly as Sleepless said..... The only files that are not private are those you are sharing, and as you did not ask Limewire to scan for media files ... this is by default your save or download folder. Unless you change this all others can see is your downloaded files. You can share other files as he described and you only share what you want to. There is no question whatsoever of you having to or needing to share anything that feel uncomfortable about.
If you go to tools>options > uploads> Clear uploads and unmark the box, you can see all the uploads in the monitor pane while and after they happen.
I am reminded here of stories the BBC come up with sometimes about p2p users loosing their life and identity, and wonder if something like this frightens you. If you have your Limewire set up correctly and use all the protection that a Windows computer user should always use, your computer is almost invisible to the outside world apart from your shared files and them alone.
Almost???? well yes, no computer connected to the internet is 100% safe, whether using p2p or not. Nothing is in this word I'm afraid
