limewire help needed

  shauny36 17:56 18 May 2007

have just uninstalled BITTORRENT and installed LIMEWIRE PRO, when uninstalled BITTORRENT i still had stuff that was still downloading so i thought if i highlighted them and selected OPEN WITH , LIMEWIRE limewire would finish the download but it hasnt,
also lime wire doesnt show anything being downloaded unless i use limewire to search then download, but it seems to download very very quick where is bitorent took days this is done in about a minute and when i open the file it seems to be different from what i downloaded.
EG i downloaded a program and when i opended the rar file all it had in was bitdownload program to install bitdownload which was NOT what it should have been.

also my old bitorent unfinshed downloads come up as unknown and have even changed it to open with limewire but still the same.

also the upload/download arrows say [email protected] kbs

click here is the exe for avg which I for one use; how have you got on with scanning your computer or has it now stopped working due to infections on it?

why did you think you did not need antivirus protection on the computer?

if you are struggling please post back; also if you are on dial up or broadband might help to know; also which windows version you are using please; if it is XP I suspect you have not updated that either? nor done any system restore points ; please post back; as if you are in deep trouble you can be directed to a specialist site to help get you clean and back up and running

let us know how you got on with the scans etc
