I don't mean to be ignorant and outdated but really, I just don't know what is this limewire stuff my kids have been up to every time they surf! Sometimes I got irritated because our PC at home is already full of limewire files(I'm not sure if I'm using the right technical term for it) that it slows down the system. One time when one of my kids borrowed my USB flash drive and when he returned it, it was already overloaded with limewire stuffs! What is this guys?! Thanks for the info!

Limewire is a peer to peer file sharing lient...something like what Napster oe was. So basically your kids are downloading files from Limewire and then saving it on the computr whih si beocming overloaded with endless programs already running, now they have probably add songs and movies.

Limewire is a P2P (peer to peer) software wherein users of limewire shares it's files to one another. you can download almost anything using limewire such as music, video, applications, documents etc. Limewire can slow down your Internet connection because because it eats up bandwith. Running limewire is not recommended when you have a dial-up connection. Like other P2P, Limewire is not always safe, some files that you will get are infected of virus, trojans etc. that can harm your system. I think the "limewire files" that you are saying is the limewire incomplete files. those files are needed for limewire to be able to resume the previously paused downloads.
