LimeWire is spyware free, because its based on Java.

Make sure Java is updated, and give your system specs. Limewire takes about 80MB of RAM alone.

the download and install itself of limewireis spyware free but not all the downloads....

did you uninstall it yet? can you run it on a different profile? does it tax your cpu causing it to bsod?
