Hmmm - frostwire/limewire, I would advise anyone to steer well clear of either of them!

Malware - Adware - and anything else, you name it!!

The developers of both Limewire and Frostwire claim that their products are 100% malware free. Absolutely no bundled nasties whatsoever.

It is true, however, that p2p software can permit the downloading of dodgy files and therein lies the risk.

The downloading of copyrighted files without consent is an offence, but launching a downloaded shared mp3 file poses no risk to a PC.

If you are still going to dabble, obtain your download client from a 'home' source and stick to acquiring non-executable files.

Hi, myself, my Partner and at least one of my friends have all had serious malware problems in the past after using Limewire - none of us have ever attempted to use it since.

PS - also None of us have ever attempted to download anything illegal!
