Try uninstalling and re-installing Limewire.Is it still working ok?

Also, consider using Frostwire. It uses the same basic source code as Limewire (and is produced by ex-Limewire developers) but seems leaner and quicker somehow.

Anyone encountered problems with Limewire opening up itself. Over the past few days my Limewire keeps starting up on its own.

I was away to download Frostwire but it went onto a page about Mirrors. What are they and which do I choose?

Mirrors are just different download sites of the file you are trying to get you can choose any i choose one closest to my geographical region if thats stated.

Probably a virus. This is one of many threads on the subject:-

I have just started to use the free version of Limewire to see how good it is. My problem is that when I save the downloads to my hard drive and then try to play them with my media player, some of them won't play.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong.

the reason they won't play is because they are corrupt or invalid files

and some might even have a little present that you don't particulaly want

thats well true installed it got virused out and then uninstalled it ,had trojans and allsorts ,also for the media files that dont play after dloaded ,i found that they were mainly AVI files and had to dload a media program which i think is really good for that kind of thing s is VLC google it ,it will come up try that ,failing that get rid of it and try another ,i tryed the sharaza or sumtin like it the other day and as it was uninstalling my AV program picked up 3 packed in trojans come i didnt carry on and got rid of that also ,but beware ,some are good alot are bad ,including lots of unwanted bouncing off firewall !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It could be a number of reasons.
You may need the codec for it.
You may need a lisence for it(delete those ones)
They are corrupt (rare).
Best not to download anything that looks like a file,on the left of the screen in the list.They are usually a virus.These have a small picture of a file(white with blue top)
If its a codec needed,then download this click here
