LimeWire is not trustable!

I have tried LimeWire after WinMX's down.

What I can tell you is that LimeWire isn't a good tool, but I don't know why it gains high recommendations from users.

I think some people from the same group of company have tried to pretend new users to vote for LimeWire so as to give mis-infomation...
Please take a look at the reviews from those who've voted for LimeWire; some of them just gave very simple comments, such as 'yes', 'good' and nothing else!

Hope you have time to check out them and you will understand I'm talking about!

just make sure you uninstall and wipe clean the "whenu" junk and "weather" junk. it works 1000 times better than limewire

I love WinMX as it supports many Languages, even Chinese!

Does the software you've mentioned support Chinese input?

Just not reliable

Hi Snuffle ,
theese application called "TURBO" or "ACCELERATION" or "BOOSTER" are just not reliable , that words are often added to original software name to draw reader's attention .
Only one parameter can increase download speed & that is the speed of connection you have , while those softwares often contains spywares .
I'm sorry that neither your Firewall nor your spyware scanner detected them .
Anyway , before dowloading softwares , you can read users review at Download.com : if softwares contain malware users write it , so you'll be sure not to download evil apps .
I'd also suggest to take a look at this link(in the event that you'd like to change your spyware scanner) :


Good luck

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?
