number of ways but as you have not mentioned it, I'll assume you are using a supported version of ISA such as ISA2004 or ISA2006 with the latest service pack applied.

1. you can create computer entries for the servers that cover www.limewire.com
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    www.limewire.com
Addresses:  4.59.128.44
          4.59.128.45
          4.59.128.46
          4.59.128.47
          4.59.128.42
          4.59.128.43
then add a deny access rule all protocols from internal - to the computer objects and place it above the allow access rules.

2. Create a url set for www.limewire.com. Create a deny http & https access rule from internal to the limewire url set and place the rule above the allow access rules.

3. Create a domain set for limewire.com AND *.limewire.com. Create a deny access rule - all protocols - from internal to limewire domain set.
Place the rule above the allow access rules.

4. Identify through the realtime log what the agent signature name is that limewire uses and then add the signature to the content filters.

This is extremely basic ISA knowledge - you may want to consider getting some training on the product before you try and do this sort of thing prefessionally.

Keith explained all the available solutions, and I will help on step 4 by explaining how to do it because you can use application signatures with ISA Server HTTP filtering to block specific applications and it will works successfully. firstly you need to read carefuly the below technical guide from Microsoft to know which signature you need to block

Then you can review the below link to have a stepm by step configuring the mentioned filtering:

Hope these will help you.
