Hey People,

I use limewire pro to download music etc. I went to download a game called Rebound of the lost world, and it downloaded etc. I virus checked it and there was no virus, so I clicked on the setup - thinking that I was going to install it on my WINDOWS XP HOME SP 2 computer. I got any error message to say that it cannot run on a windows NT Based system.

Now everytime I start my compter I get a setup popup to install the very same thing. I also some how got a software on my computer called p2pnetwork.exe and I so need help to get ride of it.

How can I stop these 2 problems and remove them off my computer without having to re-install my operating system?

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

Hello, this may help. Search for the thread called "regedit & task manager wont work" it was started by shauns1. That deals with the p2pnetwork.exe problem.

General cure for this problem:

Before you start, please check if the path to the files is correct for your Windows version. (It should be for most XP computers)

*Click here to download
Killbox by Option^Explicit.
*Extract the program to your desktop and double-click on its folder, then double-click on
Killbox.exe to start the program.
*In the killbox program, select the Delete on Reboot option.
*Copy the file names below to the clipboard by highlighting them and pressing Control-C:

C:\Program Files\MsConfigs\MsConfigs.exe

*Return to Killbox, go to the File menu, and choose "Paste from Clipboard".
*Click the red-and-white "Delete File" button. Click "Yes" at the Delete on Reboot prompt.
Click "No" at the Pending Operations prompt.

After the reboot run HijackThis again. Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MsConfigs] C:\Program Files\MsConfigs\MsConfigs.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [p2pnetwork] p2pnetwork.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [p2pnetwork] p2pnetwork.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [p2pnetwork] p2pnetwork.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunServices: [p2pnetwork] p2pnetwork.exe

For those that couldn't remember some of the filenames: they should be in there.

Hope it helps someone.
