Limewire is always sending and receiving cookies and that slows your computer down a great deal by blocking them you will be able deal with your problem a bit more easier.................Remember these types of music programs are harmful to your computer.

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.

Using System Restore is like putting a band-aid on a gun shot wound. It will hold it for a little while but it will eventually get through. I would DEFINITELY recommend you do what Starjax suggested, that being taking a trip to the Malware Forum.
