You should be fine as long as you don't try to download software, games, etc... using the program.

Also, what firewall and antivirus are you running?

Never had problems with Limewire, other than if you download movies check they are what they say they are(might be hard core porn)unless of course you want to download that and keep you're anti virus up to date.

Never had a problem with Limewire.
I always keep my firewall & Anti virus up to date, just in case.
