It's not clear in your post exactly what file you are referring to.

Have you just downloaded the Limewire program, and are trying to install it? If so, it sounds as if the download is corrupted. Try downloading it again. You can get it here from the official website.

If on the other hand you already have Limewire installed and the file that will not open is something you have downloaded with the program, DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY.

Viruses and other nasties can be hidden with innocent looking files. The fact that it is warning you about operating system files and potential damage should set alarm bells ringing!

Try getting the file again from a different source.

Good luck.

Most every song I try to download turns out being a track that talks about a limewire/frostwire court ordered settlement... Why can't I just find the songs I searched for?

Limewire has been court ordered to close down as of a couple of months ago, you cannot use limewire more frostwire anymore to download any illegal material.

To download songs, try iTunes or Zune

You can use uTorrent to download a song.

1. Click here to go to download page.
2. Search for a .torrent file for the songs you want to download. You can use this format in google (filetype: .torrent "Title of the song/album" .torrent)

what is your firewall set up, this is a risky business since your trying to use a p2p with a legit anti virus, and a common problem. so you also have i tunes, i can direct you to the sharing folder if this is the case.
