You'll just have to decide if you can live with spyware, or not.
It's a personal choice.
I wouldn't.

You want to get scared?

Read some of our Tutorials, and see what you are up against out there on the internet.

Hell, I'm scared!!

Arm yourself with all of the information you can get your hands on, it's the only chance you've got.

Each year, the SANS insttutute list their "top ten"? security vulneralabilies, and each year P2P is in it.
Whether the application is safe or not, the real problem is that P2P downloading presents, in many expert's opinions, an unwarrented risk to your computer's security.

I see that your HJT log was clean.
Why do you think there's still some Limewire remaining on your computer?
Do you have a problem?
