I tried the 'add/remove' pgm in windows XP Limewire was deleted from the list, went to desktop and clicked on the icon on the desktop and the pgm still ran. I rebooted and the Limewire still can be run from the desktop icon. The only diff is it does not list in the Add/Remove pgms list.
In Limewire folder there is a file 'do not remove' with 0kb
Just a wondered......i followed the link to 'spy no more' and gives the procedure for removing the spyware stuff from limewire. But, if you remove the spyware does it make limewire unusable? or will it still work.
I just had this problem but, I got it. Simply click
Start>>Run>>Type "C:\Program Files\Limewire">>Drag and drop the "Limewire" icon into the trash>>Start>>Limewire>>Uninstall
That should do the trick. :)
If that method has been done, sorry. I just found this forum and decided to post a quick reply. :)
Considering this was 5 years ago, im fairly certain the original posters problem is solved. Marked as solved.
File sharing in general isnt bad, but illegal filesharing is. There is plenty of legal uses of peer to peer (e.g using bittorrent to download opensource software as it saves the developers on bandwidth)
