Recurring message from uninstalled Limewire

Here's the problem:

I installed Limewire a little while back and used it for a couple of weeks, it then appeared to take over my computer. I got a pop-up for Winfix that I must have somehow installed and then both Winfix 2005 and Limewire started opening automatically when I signed on. I even checked off the auto logon feature from Limewire and it appears to have ignored that. I uninstalled both of the yesterday and have been getting a strange message asking me to reinstall it. It seemt a little odd as my computer seems fine and I am concerned about loading a virus if that is possible. Is anyone aware of problems with Limewire. I believe Winfix 2005 is not what it appears.

This is the message I have been getting:

"One or more necessary files appear to be invalid. This is generally caused by a corrupted installation. Please try downloading Limewire again. If the problem persists, please copy and paste the message below and send it to [email protected] Thank You."

This is the message that they asked me to copy (sorry for the length):

since you are another victim of P2P let the malware guys see if they can clean up the mess you've made

Not to promote illegal downloads through p2p programs, but Limewire is a p2p program that is known to be malware free. Unless you downloaded it off a third party site, there should not be a problem. Make sure you uninstalled it completely. If you have some kind of malware, it's most likely due to something else.

True, if you were downloading any exe or zipped files, you most likely got the malware from there.
