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.

Unhappy Limewire not working now why?why?why?

Hi,
When first installed Limewire, worked great, loved it. Prob is now I cant access, ( loads to 'Loading user intertface')heres circumstances.
* 2 weeks without virus protection incurred 10,367 virus/spyware/malware etc etc
* Limewire stoped working during this time
* renewed Trend Micro virus protection, now all virus gone.
* Limewire no go
* Re-installed Limewire ( both file types that are on offer at off site)
* No go
* Have added exception to Firewall = no go
* Have turned firewall off = no go

Now my issue is I was going to buy Limewire PRO, but if i cant access free version i doubt i will be able to access paid version
Can anyone offer ideas of whats going wrong or things to try
Thank you
Lucas

Thanks for reply, heres results :-
i),,Java update ( messy site they have) downloaded couple of java things, tho i assume as ive had a working version of limewire the Java isnt the issue
ii),,Completed step 2 & 3, Results after reboot :-
iii),,Limewire enters into new user sequence ie,, language type, default folder etc. Interestingly if i try to change to folder the program crashes. anyways i go go right through to 'Finish' and try to log into Limewire it does same as usual ie,, limewire loading screen hits 'loading user interface'

um,,

any other suggestions?

Lucas

The Java you needed was Java JRE ...
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update #
The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications.

It might be wise to remove all other versions of Java.

Did you try changing the LW compatibility mode? Sometimes that seems to do the trick for some odd reason.

Can you supply these details please System details - help us to help you (click on link)

Right-clicking the Limewire actual program and going to properties and change compatability setting & choose either win 2000 or NT. BTW try both to see if either will work.

BTW I'm wondering if it might be an idea to reinstall LW. But get the "Offline" installer, not the online recommended one.
Another option is to uninstall it by using the Start menu > Programs > LW > Uninstall. Then get this version Download ‘Other’ version & simply unzip & use!

Tried all forms of LW compatability = no go
Ive re-installed Limewire many time using both ones you mention
Uninstalled way you mentioned, installed 'other' version
added new exception into firewall list
first boot = got to main screen for split second, second try, back to initialising program ( no main screen)
tried steps Fixes for Limewire when LW isn't operating as it should again
no go
turned virus protection totally off
no go

Ps - would i have similar prob with full * purchased* version?

Yes. Normally a selection or combination of the fixes will get over your problem. How about trying this ... set up a new account & try running from there. If it doesn't work then delete that account.

Could try the beta I guess. BTW do you have your graphics card settings for games.

cool.
What do you mean by set up new account? like windows account?
my graphics card is a 256 mb ATI Radeon card with desktop running at 1360x1024 ( ive tried combinatins lower rez just incase = no go)
I guess the only option i havent tried is remvoing my java, but I stronly dont want to do this cos of the sizes of my java ie

j2se development kit 5.0 280mb
Java web start 2.06mg
Java runtimev1.4.1_02 172mb
j2se runtime update 8 152mb
j2se runetime updat 10 119mb

Whule iam here what is Javas purpose in life ( and can i safely get rid of some of the above without comprimising system operations, ie that runtime updat 8, as i have update 10 would this make 8 obsolete?)

Tried Beta version = no go
I have a theory via the process of elimination
timeline of limewire usage from working to defunct:-
* Limewire working, happy happy joy joy
* Limewire stops working ( 2 weeks later ) displaying same symptons as today
* renewed my virus protection ( of which i discovered 10,367 virus/malware/spyware etc - i dont put all these issues on limewires doorstop, just most, Lesson for all, use virus protection with limwire)
* deleted virus etc
* tried to run limwire , sysmptons are the same

I think during my downloads from limewire ive attracted a malicious program specifically aimed at limewires booting process & installation procedures which is the reason iam having ongoing probs.

Anyways justa thought. Kinda a shame really cos i was thoroughly enjoyinh limewire. Either way I appreciate all your help, will continue to try fixing somehow, and will continue trying any options you may provide
Thank you
