I`m trying to sort out a friends PC again,

No access to web, Norton Disabled, vrs crashes and error messages.

suspect programes are lime share and incredisearch.

whilst I know lime share is P2P software is it more deadly than kazaa as he managed to grind the PC to a halt in 4 days. Also is there a way to fully remove this nasty piece of work?

regards technodimwit

System restore?

  TECHNODIMWIT 10:46 05 Mar 2004

system restore has lost all restore points.

suspect fdisk and format required.

Might be worth running Adaware, SpyBot S+D etc if you can on the machine. Probably time for a reformat though.

I think incredisearch could be the source of your problems. Look at this forum for a discussion on how to remove it click here

running WinME.

neither adaaware or spybot loaded will try to load from CD, but think it could be a lost cause.

This time though, leave the file sharing software OFF the machine.

Taran, Its not me installing P2P, but kids will find it no matter what we do.

Gongoozler, i think Tarans right, time to start again.

last time he killed it, there was over 25 000 files in the temp folder, I dread to think this time.

I didn't mean the above to seem quite as harsh as it may have appeared.

If I just had a pound for every P2P fault related system that comes my way...


  TECHNODIMWIT 12:36 05 Mar 2004

you wernt harsh,but i might be if he kills it again.

1st time 3 months, then 1 month, now he kills it in a week.

Where is my baseball bat ;0)
