    ive noticed sometimes that on limewire i search for something... i get a healthy amount of sources but when i click to download a song it puts me onto some free music website instead of downloading the song.

    anyone know what this is?

    That's probably not good. Always check the file size of what you're downloading. Music .mp3's 3 minutes long usually are 3-4MB.

    Just try downloading from different sources on Limewire...oh...Are you using Peerguardian? Try that out, connect to Limewire see what it blocks.

    That's my idea.

    This is usually for files concerning iTunes.

    Also some files called can you affored $0.09? have the same behavior.

    Check the file's description, if it says that is a sponsors result or something like that, it will probably sent you to one of those sites.

    It looks like Limewire is at an end. RIAA warns Limewire to cease and desist.

    But then you know how it is, one shutdowns, 20 more are made. :-)

    LimeWire is just a client, not a network, how can RIAA warn a program. The Gnutella network won't shut down if the client of Gnutella network such as LimeWire don't exsist anymore. There are at least 300 clients for Gnutella.

    If you want mp3s, go to the MP2P network. They have a lot of Western songs, but not many eastern or less well known songs.

    Maybe you got one of those limewire spinoffs tha look just like it but say you have to pay 1$ song. Or you got adware or what the other guy was saying you downloaded an mp3 or html that loads up internet firefox or whatever you have and tries to get you to buy the song. Theres alot of crud on limewire music videos that load up porn websites and other stuff
