It might also be ISP related with them using special p2p anti-gnutella bandwidth shapers. O.o

Thanks, have figured out the problem and it works now. However, there is still the problem that every search brings up porn not only as the first thing 'found', but intermixed in the rest of the search items too.
I've also been told by others, that LimeWire is full of nasty virus's.

Any thoughts? I've been trying to d/l from torrent, but can't get it to work for me. I d/l a bit torrent, then try to d/l a movie, and nothing seems to work.
Any thoughts?

Ever notice so many Limewire users having problems ?
Many complaining not getting search results lately .
Then there are those who suddenly cannot find their files.
Just look thru the LW threads , you'll see .

You are confusing Limewire, the software program, with the Gnutella network, that LW uses to search for your movies. Gnutella is full of nasties, so using another program will not get rid of that problem. If you use Bitzi you can avoid much of the grabage.

To play movies you probably need to update your CODECs. More info here:

Since LW does not comply with all of the standards for torrent handling, many sites ban or restrict dls via LW. You would do much better using a dedicated torrent client such as Azureus or uTorrent. More info here: Beginners Guide

mod: I just noticed that this is the BS forum, so perhaps these last few posts should be moved. sorry
