Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Limewire and Blue Screen of Death

Limewire has always worked flawlessly for me, up until 2 weeks ago or so. Now, when I start it, it loads up, connects and a few seconds later... my system crashes. <BSoD>
I upgraded to Limewire Pro 4.10, but no luck.
I have Java 1.5 and all my drivers are the newest.
I WAS able to connect then search when I deleted my .limewire folder.... But once I turned limewire off, I would get the Blue Screen of Death again when I would try to start it up again.
I have nothing new on my computer.... has limewire have something new in it that's causing this?
Help!

("install ALL NEW DRIVERS for hardware. Chipset, video card, etc. And run windows update to get critical stuff.

All I know is that IRQL has to do with the system memory (RAM) and it might be corrupted. Also, it might be running to fast for your comp to handle (this happened to me). If you overclocked, try unclocking."

Check your heatsink & fan to be sure your computer isn't overheating. Some re-sellers offer them with inapropriate collection of components. Also, you may have a bad ram chip set.

Wow.... that was a lot to go through. Some of it didn't apply.
Okay here is my system:

Win XP PRO Sp2 (current with all updates)
ZoneAlarm 6.1.737
Style XP (Which I have disabled)
Supper Ad-blocker (also disabled)
Athlon64 FX-55 (w/ Zalman CNPS7000B-AlCu Aluminum + Copper CPU Cooler)
ASUS A8V Deluxe
2x 1GB Consair PC3200 XMS
eVGA GeForce 6800 Ultra (w/ Artic VGA NV Silencer 5)
WD 74GB SATA Drive
Plextor DVD +/- RW 712A SATA DRIVE
ENERMAX Noisetaker 600W PSU

My CPU and video card run pretty cool. Nothing overclocked. (I play WoW and other graphic intensive games and my system still runs cool.) I have ONLY gotten the BSoD when loading Limewire.
I changed my video drivers back to a previous version.
I have gone back to the older version of Java.
I have tried running Limewire under: “run under windows 2000”
I have uninstalled limewire and Java, then reinstalled again
Nothing has worked. Again, the problem only happens with Limewire and only recently.
I upgraded from limewire Pro 4.9 to limewire Pro 4.10

You must have had some spare time on your hands on this one that was allot of research.

As the lord said there are allot of things that can cause the BSoD since you said you are not doing any overclocking we can rule that out unless you have done some in the past and maybe went to far.

The next issue would be drivers but you say nothing has changed on your system so that is unlikely. You haven't added any new software or hardware recently.

All of your hardware is pretty high quality I think FX-55 came out 3 or 4 years ago so it is possible that some thing may be going bad but unlikely.

Have you ran a registry cleaning app lately or windows cleanup app you have to be careful if you do run of those types of programs they sometimes remove things that windows need to operate.

From what I see it is most likely that Windows has been corrupted some how whether from a virus or a link got lost somehow. The easiest cure I know of for that type of situation is to plop your windows CD in and reinstall Windows. When you do this it will check for a previous version of Windows and ask you if you want to repair the previous install just click yes.

Before you do this you might want to go to the link below and ask Norbie for his advice. The BSoD can be a very hard one to chase down but if it isn't a hardware problem then reinstalling Windows will work almost every time provided you copy of windows isn't corrupt.

I recall seeing the identical message on one of the multitude of links I left. If you're patient to go thru them you may just find which one it was & what it meant. Unless you want to wait for me to come back in a day or so. I'm quite tired at present & about to go offline.

Sounds like a bad Java install follow the instructions below it should help.

You will need to install Java and LimeWire manually First go to the first link.You can find Links to java in there Download Java to your hard drive by putting a mark in the save to disc box. Save it to my documents or wherever you save downloads from the internet. Do the same with LimeWire the second link will take you there.

Now with that done click on start then control panel add/remove programs and see if Java is listed on the list if it is uninstall it. Do the same with LimeWire if the un installers were not loaded you may have to manually delete the files. But in most cases this is not necessary.

Now click on the Java installer you saved to your hard drive and follow the instructions after you have completed that do the same with LimeWire.

Please post back and let us know if it worked. If it did not I will give further instructions on manually deleting Java and LimeWire.

Use the offline installers
