Hey guys I have been reading the forums on limewire. I found several cases you guys have helped with. But no direct answer to why limewire starts up continuously. I shut it down i starts up again. I have task manager
and also found I can't use command based programs thround the command dialoge box. I tried to use netstat
and only got the command line again. Has anyone found the base of this problem. It is probably something spacific! I hope.

ThankX

We don't assist with problems regarding P2P problems. Are you trying to uninstall it?

Ok I understand this, please excusse me if I was wrong but as you two where telling me this I was reading

http://www.geekstogo...273&hl=limewire

http://www.geekstogo...howtopic=103472


I was not really asking for support, what i was asking (from my peers) is has anyone run into this problem. I don't think it is actually the P2P program as much as a virus attaching to it.

Please excuss me if I miss understood!

Sorry :whistling:

That sounds like a Malware problem. We do not offer help on this site with problems associated to running P2P programs. However, we DO help you with Malware problems. Following will be a post of what you need to do to get malware help.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
