Limewire installed but will not work

  garioch 23:32 10 Sep 2006

I had limewire installed and working well then all of a sudden it wouldn't load.I then downloaded the newer version but it will not start up even although it is installed.I have a firewall,antivirus and spyware protection plus I am using the IE7.
Any ideas why limewire now not working

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling? Also, if you've downloaded anything via it, I'd run full virus and nastyware scans.

Not going for my soap box and preach Garioch

But as Kate B says scan for viruses/malware etc, click here and an online scanner click here also try turning off system restore/reboot/enable system restore.Make sure the recycle bin is empty also.

Have you got java enabled? Limewire requires java.

Java is enabled I have fully scanned for virus and spyware and system clear.I have uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times all to no effect.Its driving me crazy but may I thank you all for the advice.I will try turning off system restore etc and see what happens.
