Can I configure LimeWire songs to save to my iTunes?

I'd like to have the songs I download from LimeWire save into and become part of my iTunes library. Is this possible? I have an HP running Vista

You can import the songs into your iTunes library after they have been downloaded. Just have it scan for new songs to be added. Keep in mind, though, that the vast majority of music on P2P networks is pirated, so be careful not to download an illegal copies.

Thank you for your quick answer and usable tip. As for Limewire, I am informed each time there is no license for I song I want and I do not download it. Thank you for the reminder, though. Luckily I like music from the 40s and I find that much of it is available to download without infringing on copyrights.

you don't download it, then you can't add it to your library. Any link to files in Limewire, is only valid while the computer it's located on, is online. Also the fact that it's in the search list, does not mean that computer is connected at that time, or in fact may never appear again.
If you like 40's music (as do I)you can often pick these cd's up cheaply at any amount of discount outlets for around $2 to $5 Au, which is a little less in US money.
Not worth the risk of viruses or pirated media via Limewire.

He checks to see if the music is pirated and, if so, chooses not to download it, not that he doesn't download the music he wants to play using iTunes.

Actually I buy rights through iTunes for most of my music. I just started checking for certain songs with LimeWire. I honestly have no desire to profit from pirated material. I also love those cheap CD compilations you can buy at shopping center stores like Fred Meyer and/or Walmart. I recently found a Mills Brothers Greatest Hits for $3.99. thanks for your concerns.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
