"i don't think virus can come on to ur system as lond as limewire has a filter"
Over the weekend Henry i cleaned a system riddled with over 300 viruses,though i cannot say they are related all to Limewire,my guess is they are.
No matter what protection any system has,if you allow and give permission for an infected file to be transferred to your system and the so called Limewire filter does not pick it up........your infected !
These p2p file sharing programs are reknown for Viruses and i seem to be the first port of call near me to clean these pc's that have Limewire....i think that says it all.
Dont get me wrong,i know the viruses may have come from other sources too.
I have recently cleaned the same pc twice,as the daughters of the household had downloaded Limewire again and followed suit by downloading music that i believe infected the pc.
