A peer-to-peer file sharer, this application is preset to start with Windows and run in the background. It can be configured to run only when initially opened, however. It allows you to search a vast peer-to-peer network for various file types, primarily for music, videos, or software programs. Limewire is no longer supported, and as of 2010 has been officially disabled.http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/limewire.exe.html

LimeWire is a peer to peer filesharing program. Be very careful when using it is a gateway to viruses and hackers! Can be dangerous when downloading programs via LimeWire! Harmless if used to get free Music, Videos, and Pictures. Toboe10
Runs fine for me, no problems. Stays as a system process after program is shut down, but can be manually shutdown from task manager. Music Hog
p2p file sharing. Careful what you download. mp3 have not had any problems. Wouldn't download any programs. wma, wmv, mov files (usually fake, adsponsered) ptownp2p
