I am involved with cleaning a comp, not mine ;

having already found limewire on it I am concerned that other programs may also be on it that can facilitate the downloading of illegal and/or undesirable 'material'so that those programs can be removed; I have also explained to the comps owner the possible consequences of having illegal material on the comp ; can anyone give me the names of programs they know might be used for this purpose so I can be 'alert' to them if I find them and remove them

thanks
