I get home from work last night and started to check my emails, when i noticed that there was a new icon on my desktop. It was a light green and yellow circle. CLicked on the icon and it took me to limewire. I learned that my 12 year old downloaded limewire with help of her friends and tried to download some songs. They encountered a problem. She said something about a trojan, panicked and shut off the pcm knowing she did something she wan NOT suppose to do. She knows we buy out music from walmart, but wanted some songs for her and her friends. I tried to remove limewire and when i thought it was all gone, i did a check in the search found on the start panel, all the limewire junk is not gone. There are 4 things that show in the search screen: Limewire, limewire.exe, limewire.jar and limewire20.dll all found in my program files.
When i try to delete these i get popups saying: it says can not be deleted because it is being used by another person or program. I closed all the programs and tried again, still it would not let me delete them.
When i click on the limewire. exe the popup says that access is denied. Is there anything that i can do to get rid of this stuff. I ran adaware and anit-virus programs. I did have a trojan show up on my trojanhunter and that trojan was removed. However, i still can not remove the junk from my program files.
Needless to say, my daughter is not allowed to use the pc unless i am watching her.
Thanks for any and all help, i would greatly appreciate it!!!! Michelle
