Hi Lem
Lime wire is tricky,open lime wire go to its library and click shared file open it and say stop
sharing. you most likely have it being shared.becareful using lime wire as people can take right down to dll's from your computer. you might also try clicking on shared folder and copy it to differant location.

This more than likely sounds like a malware problem - possibly a malware infection, or malware could also possibly have corrupted files in your Shared space. I advise you to download and run a HiJackThis scan and post a log of it in the Malware section. You can download the program here:

welcome to geekstogo
the problem here is that this site does not help people with P2Ps so the moment one removes the malware from the system the P2P only leaves one open to reinfection since a P2P leaves your ports open

anyway try the malware removal section on this site, please go though the steps mentioned in the below link, the link will then explain what to do after that
