    I've been using limewire for about 8 months, now. I usually find the songs I am searching for, with the exception of a few unpopular tunes. Very rarely do I have a problem downloading a song. So far, no viruses, no adware, and no spyware from LimeWire. I have downloaded a few video clips without a problem, too. After reading the other reviews, I'll probably not download any software. All in all, I love it!


    Same complaint as many others - when you launch the program, you'll get a pop up message to upgrade to PRO. Just click later. A small inconvenience for a truly great free product!
