There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Question Indeed the end of spyware and viruses on LimeWire?(!)

well, my kidz go wild with LimeWire and once in a while I find myself spending hours while fixing damages caused by spyware and viruses. What bothers me most is the fact that not always my anti virus/spyware save me on time…

while searching I found this new p2p file sharing protection called - bufferzone, it claims to automatically neutralize viruses, spyware, trojans of any kind, even new and unknown. it uses this new virtualization security (Not a Sandbox), so any virus or spyware (as far as I understand and correct me if I'm wrong...) 'attack' dummy pc targets instead of my actual pc.

if that is true, then it looks like the end of this endless headache with these annoying malware threats and I probably won't have to count anymore on my Anti-virus to save me on time...

the thing is, it sound too good to me - I was trying to get some feedbacks from LimeWire Pros in this forum.
did any of you already experienced this interesting security solution on his LimeWire?

Afaik this has been mentioned 4 times on the forums .... each time by you. No one else seems to know anything about it. Forum members tend to recommend various protective programmes, and these are mentioned in a number of stickies. I would tend to go with what has a good reputation

Sleepless is just really nice

lol, just out of curiousity had a look and then tried their security test. Seems like some kind of scam to me.

Was asked to download and run a trojandemo. Clicked it and a calculator popped up. Then a message popped up that I was not protected and the program had gather info on my files, then got three choices:

Protect yourself ; Attack result : close

I chose Attack results, my firewall popped up right away to ask if this program could contact TrustWare website. I said no and then got the result page.


What a scam. Seemed very professional though, like any other scamsite

I would just love to see a PC guide magazines, Z-Net impartial review or one of the major antimalware websites give this a thorough test.

If they want to gain any respect and trust from people, they should invite some real tests. Maybe the affiliate or owner that started this thread will take my advise on this and give this out to experts for testing.

Found a few reviews, but if it really was that good, sites like zeropaid and similar would be encouraging users to try it. (start of exact same review)

And that's about it.

Feel free to prove me wrong

Oh and BTW if it works so well, please download some viruses and other nasties of the network, try to run them take screenshots etc. and post the results

Make sure you anti-virus software is up-to-date and has not expired. My experience is both Norton and McAfee will not allow any file with a virus to be uploaded. There is spyware software that removes spyware and at least McAfee also removes spyware.
