I downloaded a file from limewire, first of all I can't open second I can't delete the file. It is a mpeg file and when I right click on the file it only gives me: Play, add to now play list, add to play list, add to sync list, add to burn list, open with and send to. NO DELETE OPTION. :whistling:

Hi benm, welcome to Geeks To Go Forums.

You may be infected with malware. Limewire is a P2P program and many viruses are contracted from downloads from the program, this is why I belive that you are infected with malware.

So please read this: Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log (Click on the link)

That will give you steps that will help you clean up 70% of the problems yourself. Then please download "Hijackthis" and run Hijackthis with log. Save the log file here: Malware Removal - HiJackThis Logs Go Here

When you have followed all these steps. A Geeks To Go Staff Member will help you fix your problem.

(Note: Please be patient, the "Malware Forum" is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual.)

Thank you and goodluck. :whistling:
