    the free version has ad-/spyware. the PRO version doesnt

    I dont like Limewire because it needs Java. I prefer bearshare

    But the official site claims..

    NO BUNDLED SOFTWARE OF ANY KIND!
    No spyware. No adware. Guaranteed.

    it definetly has spyware...I was foolish enough the other day to install it... Geeezz...ZoneAlarm was going crazy...Even McAfee claims to have picked up a trojan from it...Actually, I have had to put the imesh program itself in the exclusion list to prevent it from being quarantined!!!

    I've never seen spyware with Limewire.

    The only difference I see between the free and the pro version is that the pro version have more search results.

    Else it's the same.

    And btw, the free version also have the annoying popup message each time.

    Likewise, ive been using limewire for years and never had a spyware/adware problem with it, i reckon you guys whove found spyware are getting it from other sources.

    You can download the pro version using limewire basic so just do that

    For me there is no difference between the two. Using limewire or limewire pro I got no spywares or adwares or viruses and the dl speed for both is around 100kbs which is about the same.
