LimeWire 5.5.16 Full Description

LimeWire is the world's most popular peer-to-peer file-sharing program. With over 70 million unique monthly users, the software is downloaded hundreds of thousands of times every day and boasts millions of active users at any given moment.

As always, LimeWire takes the security of its users very seriously and will never bundle spyware, adware, or viruses.

LimeWire is a peer-to-peer file sharing program that connects to the Gnutella network and enables users to search for and download files from other users. It is not a web site or a service, and LimeWire does not provide any of the content found on the network. LimeWire enables you to share your files with millions of other LimeWire users, and vice versa, so there is always a diverse selection of files available.

review by cesar escobedo (Feb 2, 2011)

review by M-Eh? (Oct 9, 2010)

I did not download a patch from any website. I got a pop-up notice while I was running Limewire that said Limewire on it, and told me that if I didn't download the update, thaen my Limewire would no longer work.
Did Limewire in fact send out an update alert that popped up while it was running, or did I get a bug?

review by M-Eh? (Oct 7, 2010)

Since my upgrade to 5.5.14 Pro, I was sent an update patch & now my Limewire speed is less than 1kb/sec. I have had problems previous to this in which my connection would disconnect at times, or show that it was fully connected, but downloads all stop. If I shut down & restatred Limewire a few times, I could get it running again...but since the new add-on, that doesn't help. I am at less than 1kb/sec compared to up to a few hundred sometimes.

review by Silver_spirit_IV (Oct 7, 2010)

Since I have the latest version of Limewire, download process is very bad and slow (between 1Ko/s to 0.2Ko/s). I guess they want to force you to take the Pro version which is not free
