You will have to bare with me Im no pc expert . I have accidently dowloaded a load of zip files on limewire which I think are spyware . They are in the upload section of the libary.

They have titles such as

act of war direct action

batch and print pro 2.00

Hide IP platinum

The list goes on and on with various [bleep] zips

They are all file size 69.4kb :)

Ive tried deleting them and they keep resurfacing , I even re installed limewire and they are still there . Ive used anti virus software and nothing ever shows up.

At first I thought it wasnt a big deal . But recently a few dodgy things have happened like the computor dialing a connection . Plus limewire always restarts after I exit it. I disabled the connection to the net and a message popped up that limewire had to be reinstalled . Its starting to scare me a bit can you help please guys?? :tazz:
