Hey Tippi, I have connected fine and downloaded.

If you have antivirus or firewall, right click on their icon and his disable (firewall portion) and try to reconnect.

Sounds maybe an issue of an outside program blocking it.

Is Limewire full of worms and small viruses still, or have they cleaned it up?

Tippi...I don't know what Limewire you are using but if you can ( find & download Limewire Pro ) I haven't used Limewire for a while but it seems to me that the Pro version will let you connect better. Hope this helps you.

We've used Limewire since it came out and have never gotten a single virus from it. And we've not had a problem downloading anything recently, in fact we were on yesterday getting music. *shrug*

Tippi- close your old version, and delete it off you puter and then install the new one. Look on the bottom bar to the right of the Start button and if it is running you should have a green thing in there, just hold the mouse over it and it will say Limewire.

Did all that and went to the add/remove programs and removed it from there so I'm not sure why it's saying that.

WingNut

Now restart you puter and the changes should take effect.

I'll install it on mine and see what happens tippi.

I'm sure it's something to do with my computer but I just don't know what it is.

WingNut
07-10-2007, 07:39 PM
Tippi- I just installed it on mine and it works perfect. I went to audio and typed in a group and within 10 secs I had 1086 songs by that artist, that is when I hit the stop search.

Try copying the limewire program right on to your hard drive and run the .exe from there.

tippikitty
07-10-2007, 07:44 PM
I think the program is fine it must be a setting on my computer or something.

Woohoo I got it!!! it was my java script there was a problem with it so I un-installed it and reinstalled it and now it's working fine. Thanks for all the help and for the Pro upgrade.

Other than his total fascination with anything to do with polkas Wing Nut is ok. A little bent sometimes and most definitely frayed around the edges but basically OK.

Do a search for *svchost* on your system. Post the results here.

i have tons of "svchost" running i just tried to copy and paste them here but it wouldnt work. are they all bad?

Hans
07-15-2007, 01:50 PM
Running is different then location. The only location for svchost is windows\system32. Any other location and it's a trojan or virus.
Starting up a fake svchost is one of the major ways a trojan or virus infects your system and can stay undetected.

kitca
07-15-2007, 04:15 PM
so how do i get rid of them? i have several of these things running. i do a mcaffee each week and a spybot and adaware too. but they always seem to come right back.

Hans
07-15-2007, 06:41 PM
Download http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Utilities/ProcessExplorer.mspx

Then after installing it, open it.
It will show all your running processes.
It's normal to have several processes called svchost.exe. However, the path has to be \windows\system32\svchost.exe
Any other path and it's a virus or trojan.

i use limewire all the time for those hard to find artist's and songs. ive yet once to get any form of malicious software from it. it just takes a bit o common sense and reading to weed out the crap from the good. it dont matter what form of p2p you use, your going to get malware if you just click like crazy without a little bit of looking around.

Those programs all suck in the end. Torrents are the way to go. My private torrent site collection is building nicely, so I seem to be able to get anything I want (small list).

Could I ask what that site would be Harleygirl? I don't trust too many sites.

DeleteAccout
07-20-2007, 03:52 PM
Harley seems to be speaking of Torents. It's like a mass download thing. Rather than download one song, you can download the full album or the full discography. It does however take much more time, and the risk of being infected can be higher due to the file sizes being greater. People dont realize that "spyware" is small .... while viruses can be larger in size, and easily hidden in a large download.

Regardless .... for single songs ..... Limewire / Frostwire is the best you can get. For mass Downloads, Get Azureus, or Bit Spirit and use tracker sites like mininova.org, torrentleech.org if you can get an invite, and demonoid.com if you can also get an invite
