Limewire basic vs pro....

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ive been looking to get something to download music but dont want the garbage that comes with it. I just read on limewires sight that both the basic and pro versions have no adware and spywara. Is this completely true?

The program itself may not have malware, but the things you download can be malware.

Downloading music is illegal as well. I recommend not doing it.

Nothing will happen about it properly for many, MANY years... It's nearly impossible and an incredible waste of money to stop.

Not true, it is only illegal if the music is copy righted. Some people upload free music recorded locally just to get the music out in the public. Not to mention I have gotten plenty of free ware "legal" from file sharing networks.

The basic version doesn't have "Spyware", though it does include an application that brings up pop-up advertisements every now and again as you browse and search the net.

I think Modki here on OCN put it best;
