    brindle, welcome to TSG. You ask what is winmx. This is what I consider the best of the sites to download music. And it is free. If you want to download music, go to www.winmx.com and download v3.2. I am sure you will be very happy with this. I just upgraded from v3.1 to v3.2 and I like what I see. Gary16735

    Jenna, not being sure of your experience , I will do the step by step !

    Start/ Settings/ Control Panel/ Add Remove programs...scroll to win mx and highlight, then click add remove, and exit.

    Then run the set-up for 3.2...it works, I just did it :)...Rhett

    Don't know about others but I downloaded v3.2 over v3.1 and had no problems. I couldn't answer if you would lose your songs. Gary

    Hi tru_skilz

    After you d/l version 3.2, close WinMX, then click on your downloaded WINMX320.exe folder & it automatically overwrites your prev version of WinMX & updates it to 3.2, no songs are lost or altered. I've just done it, you'll be fine:D Let us know how it goes.

    Have you made sure that 3.1 is closed, and that there isn't a green WinMX icon near your clock?

    It won't install the newer version if the old is still running
