Music Download

Hey, now that they have shut Winmx down, where am I to get my free music downloads? Anyone know? I heard limewire, but am afraid to download it.

Any ideas people?

I went searching for a solution and a guy had a website up. Here is how to get WinMX back up and running I was a bit nervous and made sure to back up my "hosts" file before replacing it, but it works fine.

1) go to this url :

2) after download of "hosts" file ( is a windows file included in the system ) we can proceed

3) now paste the new file "hosts" in the directory of windows which change like the version of s.o.
For Windows 95/98/Me the directory is c:windowshosts
For Windows NT/2000/XP Pro the directory is c:winntsystem32driversetchosts
For Windows XP Home the directory is c:windowssystem32driversetchosts
Now we can replace the "hosts" file .

4) for win2k & xp sometimes may be necessary use the command "ipconfig /flushdns" from the prompt of windows.

5) now, open winmx and try to connect with primary connection !

Lots of people on here I remember from years ago.
