Has anybody ever heard of LimeWire 4.9.4? Is it safe? Hubby downloaded it yesterday and I learned you have to configure your firewall to accept it. I just got my computer nice and safe, and I want to keep it that way! Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.

To the best of my knowledge, Limewire itself does not contain malware etc, however, many of the items available for sharing on P2P networks do, so keep that in mind.

Yes, to get the most out of Limewire, your firewall will need to be configured to allow traffic in and out to Limewire. Having said that, if you do more "pulling" than sharing, I would try to run it without any firewall modifications and see how it performs.

Opening the door should always be the last resort...

Be well, SD

LimeWire is currently the leading P2P program the web has to offer, so i would not worry about the program itself too much. however, some conent that limewire offers may be unsafe. it is always best to try and download a file that has been zipped. (.zip folders)
