I want to install limewire on a mac os x 10.6.2 system. How I can secure my system through internal configurations against limewire threats like virus infections, shared folders etc.

Is there a way to let limewire run in somekind of sandbox, or some best practices on dealing with such software in mac os x?

You can install an anti-virus, or run it in a virtual machine. VirtualBox can run in seamless mode too, so it integrates into your workspace fairly unobtrusively.
