What Do I Do To Make This Go Away And LimeWire To Work!!??!???!??

PLEASE HELP ME!

If LimeWire does not start at all, and you receive the following error message
LimeWire was unable to initialize and start. This is usually due to a firewall program blocking LimeWire’s access to the internet or loopback connections on the local machine. Please allow LimeWire access to the internet and restart LimeWire.

then a security program is likely blocking LimeWire. Check any security programs installed on your computer to make sure that LimeWire is listed as an exception. Norton’s Internet Worm Protection feature can cause this error. Please check the documentation that came with your security software for instructions on how to allow LimeWire to connect.
Solution
Third-Party Security Programs

Many third-party security programs block LimeWire from launching or connecting either by restricting access to the port that LimeWire uses to connect to the Gnutella network (i.e. – a firewall), the program itself, or a combination of the two. These programs may have been installed on your computer before you purchased it.
Adding An Exception For The LimeWire Program

Sample right-click menu from the system tray icon
Check the Windows system tray (usually located in the bottom-right corner of the screen, next to the time), and locate the icon associated with your security program. Right-click the icon to enter the settings.
Locate a section for adding exceptions for specific programs.
Add LimeWire as an exception (C:\Program Files\LimeWire\LimeWire.exe by default on Windows systems)
Full Uninstall & Reinstall

If modifying the settings in your security program does not fix the connection problem, try doing a full uninstall & reinstall of the LimeWire software. This will often resolve connection issues related to security programs blocking LimeWire or unreliable connections to the Gnutella network. Please make sure to follow these instructions COMPLETELY to ensure a full uninstall/reinstall.

Still Can’t Connect?
If you have never been able to connect, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to find out if they block peer-to-peer connections. Also ask if you are connecting through a proxy. LimeWire will need to be configured to work with your proxy by going to Advanced > Proxy within the LimeWire options. If your ISP sent you a modem, ask if it is equipped with a firewall.
If you are trying to connect from school or work, then you are probably connecting through a Local Area Network (LAN), and you may need to contact you

I had the same problem recently… two things to check

(1) If you have a firewall (e.g. Zonealarm) ensure it is configured to allow Limewire access to the Internet, and,

(2) Open Limewire and under the FILE menu, select CONNECT…

This should fix your problem… However, if it doesn’t, then close your firewall down and try connecting again … this will tell you if it is the firewall blocking access (you can open your firewall program again as soon as you have tested it.. At least it will help you pinpoint whether the issue is firewall or Limewire).

Change your security settings/firewall to the lowest possible settings. Then re-start the computer and limewire. After using limewire then turn the security settings back on. Make sure you run a virus scan because limewire is full of viruses!

What Sara said, but if it still has the same problem, check your firewall/antivirus program.
