Tired of LimeWire
:idea:Ok so I've downloaded LW for like the 50th time, and each time I have the same problem. I have Verizon DSL and I would like to be able to download files from LW. I know that Verizon is not going to help me because they said that they dont want me to download anything that can hurt my PC. But I still need to get to download. Can anyone help me to solve this problem. My pc is a dell and I run on Windows XP.

50 downloads!, sounds like a serious problem. Perhaps you should describe the problem. And from where are you downloading LW?

Use an other P2P application, such as Shareaza, Phex,... There are plenty of applications out there that are much better than LW...

I am a Newbie
As new member, the forum seems to be forcing me to make a post so I dont get all the intro's about rules? I know the better place is supposed to be new mrmber intros but I'm in this post (not quite sure how?) so my apologies for rambling.

I've downloaded and installed both LW and FW in Win Vista machine successfully with no problems. I even seem to be able to run the two simultaneously downloading to the same saved directory.

Have you tried using a thumnail usb drive to get a clean copy of download instal file from friend or wifi internet cafe. Maybe your ISP is interfering with download of instal program. My 2 cents worth which aint much cuz I dont know much. WJ

Ok the problem is this I have Verizon DSL, and since then when I try to download songs from LW I always see the globe being blocked by a brick wall. I'm in the U.S. and I really dont understand why this is happening.

I'm tired of Limewire-in fact I'm going to stop using them after I post this. I looked up adult videos and was disgusted to find child porn on this site. WTF is the matter with you people f***in sickos. Why is someone not monitoring this stuff. I'm even going to go further and see what can be done about getting them shut down until something is done about it.

You are insulting the wrong people.

You obviously do not understand how peer-to-peer software works. There is no "they", other than the individuals who are connected, via various programs such as Limewire, to the Gnutella network. If it were possible to stop the sharing of child porn, we would have done so long ago. If you do a search on this topic in the forum, you'll find a few thousand comments and suggestions on what to do about it.
