    if you have no search button its most likely that it is not connecting,if it is an old version then it probably wont connect,as always search past posting and whenever possible add to an existing thread instead of starting a new thread as you have done,there are hundreds of p2p threads all over the forums and making more of them just makes it harder to find things for yourself and others in the future,if you cannot find an answer in previous threads it is always a good ideas to check out some of the dedicated filesharing sites that have been mentioned before,again found by using the search feature,many of the older p2p versions will connect if you know a way round doing it.

    Default Limewire trick

    Hey Folks,
    Here's what to do with Limewire. First get Limewire free. Then download the Limewire Pro off of the Limewire free. (programs search) Be sure to go to the "options" and set up each and every option, such as upload/download speed, sharing, etc. If you don't, they'll eat your processer up. (as in suck all the power you got) Also, Do NOT let them scan your computer upon installation. You can add the folders you want to share later with the "options" at the top of the program. (Music, video, etc.) Lastly, get ready if your uptight or anal, they are going to try and throw tons of porn at you. Just ignore it.
    C YA !

    Default Limewire

    Limewire has, to all intents and purposes, closed down. DO NOT try and get Limewire Pro, you will only end up with virus after virus, trojans and all kinds of crap.

    IF you want a p2p prog, try pirate cove instead...MUCH better and far less crap!!

    it would be better for others if you let people know where to find a program you are recommending.

    for many it is ok rita,just depends how much you use it and the amount of files and types you download.take into acoount though that many files have spyware,adware,trojans etc etc and many antivirus programs especially if the users do not keep them up to date can and do miss detecting them,i recently run a full system scan on a friends pc and the antivirus came up as clean yet when i scanned it with spybot and adaware then it found 5 critical items all of which were trojans.i personally do not use p2p software but i do deal with computers that do, and find a vast majority have such stuff on them that the owners were not aware of.it is a threat that users do seem to take lightly and tend to lean to the opinion its good and safe until something wipes them out and they have to reinstall from scratch.
