Default Help with Limewire and Morpheus and firewalls.

I have Windows Vista and McAfee came with it. When I try to load up either Limewire PRO or Morpheus Ultra it keeps saying connection. also as soon as it is loaded up, I can no longer surf the net and i have cable. It says it is connected but it is blocked due to a possible remote firewall. I have turned off windows firewall and McAfee and it still does it. Is there a way aropund this? Thank for your time.

configure your firewall to allow that application, so that you can download all of those viruses

Um, I use Limewire (Pro) and bearshare all the time and have been free of such Trojans/viruses.

I repair computers for a living. most of the computers that I get are virus infected computers from content downloaded off of limewire
