Hi there, I'm a complete beginner at Limewire---just downloaded it yesterday, but someone told me that I may have connection problems if I'm on a network with a router. Supposedly the answer is to use "portforward", but I got totally lost reading the instructions on www.portforward.com, so I can't be of any real help. That MAY be the problem, however. Is there any online help from Limewire?

My DIFFERENT LimeWire Question...

My LimeWire question is: Once you have completely uninstalled the damned software off your computer, including ALL the files... does LimeWire still work? Like, will people still be filesharing off your computer every time you go on the Internet?
