    I just figured out that Limewire shares all of your pictures auotmatically!!!!!!! You have to go through and set it to "unshare" I am so mad! How can it be that easy for a computer to share your whole life with out you knowing?

        Too late - I got all your pictures anyway BP smile
        The computer tech who fixed your system gave them to me.
        I've made $1.2 million from them so far lol

        Hope you've recovered from the pig flu.
        cheers, Eric G.

        P.S. re LIMEWIRE:
        Use a bit of commonsense here people.
        If you don't want to share photos, etc. then change the limewire sharing directory to an empty one that has nothing in it!.
        And only add things into it that you DO want to share.

        It's not rocket science.

      I wrote a hub about this several weeks ago. It could share your entire network.

    Indeed the police monitor limewire.  There was a case recently in Brisbane in which I had to do an assignment for involivng the downloading of child porographic material onto lime wire.  If you want to read the case it went to the Queensland Court of Appeal

    Or, alternatively, you could stop stealing and *buy* your music, movies and games rather than using limewire or other file sharing programs. smile  Problem solved!

    It was on the news..People lost credit info and many other things from limewire. Limewire 5 now protects, if you set it to not share it wont.

      "protects"? It's a free file sharing program that makes your computer a peer on a worldwide network of stolen files. Protects you from what?
