    Whenever i launch limewire, it takes ALL my ram... i have 1 gig, and it takes ALL of it. I checked the Activity Moniter and it says its taking 163mb, but all of the ram is completely used. I haven't really notice other programs slowing down, but i'd like to find out what the problem is.



    cheers,

    As it downloads, it keeps the data in memory, faster access in case you want to preview the file or the like. Plus its java, java itself is a memory hog. If everything is running fine, don't worry, and keep it legal ;)
