    Previously this program runs fine, i tried running it today and its not loading more than 12%. I uninstalled and re-installed the program and nothing. I havent installed any new programs since it last worked or altered anything.

    Any ideas anyone?

    What do you mean, not loading more than 12% - 12% of what??
    Any other programs that are playing up?

    I wonder why you get 2.48 MILLION hits when searching Google for 'Limewire spyware'? Or 2.38 MILLION hits when searching for 'Limewire virus'? Or 1.7 MILLION hits when searching for 'Limewire trojan'? Or 1.28 MILLION hits when searching for 'Limewire malware'? Hmmmm.... :hhhmmm

    With P2P, not only do you not know what you're getting when you install the app, you also don't know what the other "P" is giving "2" your "P".

    Limewire is "evil" which is why system admins for most uni networks ban the thing. Using Limewire is like opening all the ports in your firewall and saying to hackers/crackers "come and get me".

    Yeah i guess so.

    No nothing else is playing up and its 12% of the user interface that loads but gets stuck on 12%.

    I ran an AVG anti virus check and spyware doctor check - system all clear, i only use Limewire nothing else that i know of that could be giving be spyware etc (like gaming websites or adult websites/software/downloads etc)

    Ah well not the end of the world.

    Thanks anyway.
