Limewire from my experiences is by far the MOST DANGEROUS, yet most popular, form of P2P file sharing. Even if it is for legal purposes. Your topic will most likely be closed for discussing illegal, pirated material however. If you are to continue using P2P programs, at least scan the files after download with an Anti-Virus program and Anti-Spyware program but you are still probably getting some nasties in the process.
Edit: If your teens are using Limewire, please post a topic in the Am I Infected? forum, because you most likely are pretty infected.

While the above is true, that is only if the files are actually mp3s/wmas.
And Media Player is a component of every Windows install and by default is highly exploitable, especially if the computer doesn't have all patches installed...
