    Hmmmm, they both use the Gnutella network, so if a virus is available in limewire, it will be available for frostwire as well.

    I'm going to revive this discussion! :)

    I'm having a problem with my FROSTWIRE. Recently it just keeps on freezing. I tried to force quit it but it would just close and it's still on my dock. I can't move it to the trash and I can't open it. So I have to restart. What could be the problem? The connection's ok, by the way.

    after restarting, are you still not able to remove it from dock?

    as a generic troubleshooting for all software, first thing you want to try is to uninstall it. Second, download a newer version or a newer copy of the installer and reinstall.

    Just a suggestion :D

    When I restart my MB, it doesn't appear on the dock anymore but then again when I open it, after a couple of minutes it just freezes again. There are times that it will last for long hours like 5 hours but most of the time it's just a couple of minutes.

    The connection is still turbo charged (the one in the lower left part) but it's not connecting. Weird. I've tried installing and uninstalling over and over. It's making me furious. Any other apps that I can install to replace frostwire? I like frostwire better that limewire cos limewire takes forever to dowload.

    Thanks in advance!
