Itunes and Limewire

My girlfriend gave me a 30gb Ipod for Christmas. So, I load Itunes on my office computer. Then the next day I go to use Itunes and It says that I can see JshmoesLimewire. What I didn't know was that If you have Limewire running on your computer, Itunes will see it and allow you to directly take music from Limewire. The wierd thing is I HAD NOT set up Limewire on my computer. I was seeing some elses Limewire. Jshmoe sits about 25 feet from me and we DONOT share computers. In the mean time I did load Limewire. Now, Limewire and Itunes are running locally, I did not set either up on my office network.
Then a few days goes by and I get a call from Jshmoe2, he sits 2 floors above me. He just set up Itunes on his computer and now he can see MY limewire. Does anyone understand why either of us can see other peoples Limewire.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

because limewire by default shares out your music folder the same way itunes shares out, nothing new. Just go through your settings in each program and turn the sharing off.

If you're on a server then itunes will go out and look for other computers installed with itunes. If you have sharing enable then up to 5 people can listen to your tunes over the server (you can password protect it by editing the sharing preferences so only your friends can have access). Limewire doesn't have anything to do with this feature. In fact Limewire is a know carrier of Adware and you should be very leary of installing it on your computer.

Re: Itunes and Limewire

Ok, I didn't realize that was sharing in Itunes. I did know there was sharing in Limewire. So, I just need to shut that off
sharing in Itunes.

Thanks to all for the help
