Limewire problems - corrupted /scrambled window

  Yourhelppls 09:23 24 Jun 2006

I have an XP PC with Word 97, Firewall, Antivirus and Broadband. I recently installed the Limewire filesharing program, when I open it however, and move the cursor anywhere in the window, all the text and images becomes unreadable and scrambled even though the window is still active. Can anyone help please.

Also tried using WinMX but that will not connect to the network it just sits there waiting to connect. Thanks for your assist.

I know with WINMX you now need a patch to make it work but I cant remember where i got it from, try a search on google, as for youre limewire problem can't help.

WinMX got shutdown - there is a patch that is supposed to make it work - but you're probably just as well off with Limewire.

I would suggest uninstalling Limewire and downloading another copy.

Once you've got a new working version to into search for programs and put in Limewire pro - I'm sure you can guess what to do next....:)

Thanks all but could not get this program to work on my system even though I was using the latest JAVA tools which their tech people thought was causing the problem. I was able to use something called Frostwire subsequently. Cheers.
