I'm not sure if the new one does, the older versions had spyware on them. I just run my Adaware and Spybot every time it upgrades, that takes it off your computer. :thumbsup:

Limewire does not contain any malware ( in the versions 4.10+) If you are looking for the pro version please be aware that some "jokers "posted a so-called pro version with a keylogger in it. After installation please do a check with the online scan of ewido .

If that is the case, then I suggest it is down loaded from the official site.
