Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to make Limewire work on your computer. Limewire is a pure to pure exchange program, which is used so that users can upload files, or download them. With Limewire, you can download a file from several users simultaneously, if lots of users have the same file. First of all, download Limewire from the official site, at Since it's available for download for free, there's no reason to download it from any other source. Now, once you've downloaded and installed the program, you want to make sure that your firewall isn't blocking it. To do this, just go to Start, Control Panel, and then go to Windows Firewall. Here, in the Exceptions tab, you can make sure that Limewire is selected. Finally, if you have an anti-spyware, or internet security programs, these might also block Limewire, because some might recognize it as a threat, so also make sure that it's added as an exception, in any such software, which you might be running.
