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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Old version always starts
I just started using the LW Pro. Its loads fine and starts up fine. Configure it with no problems and runs great. After shutting down i try to start it up and i get the older version (4.16). I went through and uninstalled the program. Looked around and didnt see any version of LW on my computer and re-installed LW Pro. Once again loaded/started/ran fine. Stopped the program and restarted . . . . again the LW 4.16 version started up. All icons/shortcuts refer to LW Pro. but LW 4.16 starts. How do i get rid of Ver 4.16 so i can start using Pro??? Currently using Win 7 if that makes a difference. Thanks in advance for your help!!
Try a couple of things, (1) deleting your LW preferences folder. See if that fixes things. http://www.gnutellaforums.com/genera...ndows-7-a.html (make sure you backup your downloads(.dat) file first. This is a small tricky process but not complex. See near bottom of instructions. Do this first.)
If that does not fix it, see below.
(2) (a) Uninstall LW from the Start menu -> All Programs -> LW -> Uninstall.
. . (b) Run this utility: Crap Cleaner
. . (c) Reinstall LW Pro.
Have you used the search function for LimeWire to see if & where a second version exists? Search all drives.
If LW 4.16 can be located, it can then be uninstalled. There will be an uninstaller within that LW program folder (or within a sub-folder.)
I did that earlier. I know there has to be one on the cmptr the prob is finding it. Do you know what the exe routine is for LW 4.16 that may help in my search. Right now I've again deleted LW, ran the CCleaner and now defragging both drives. After that i'll search again and try to find it. If i find anything associated with LW its history. Defrag again and re-install LW Pro. All that in all my spare time. Any more ideas while i wait is appreactiated. Thanks again for ur help!!!!
I think normally LW would be installed into the applications folder of the C drive unless it was custom installed to a different location, such as a different drive/partition. Normally when you reinstall/install a later version, at the beginning of the installation process it will remove the previous version. Seems for some reason this has not happened. As hinted, my thought is that LW 4.16 was not installed into the regular location.
When doing a search on your computer for Limewire, use an all types of files including hidden files & extensions type of search. This can be set in the search options usually. Though I have Win 7, I only use it for testing, not use it regularly so I don't know it that well.
I don't suppose you have a second boot up drive on the computer. If yes, this might be why perhaps. And perhaps why a basic computer search does not see it.
Come to think of it, Win 7 does have some considerable differences to organisation than Win XP & earlier. I recall discovering a folder hierarchy not used in other systems starting from the C root level. Thus a search needs to be a thorough root level search inclusive of invisible folders & files & all types of files & extensions as mentioned.
If you view C drive from root level folder hierarchy expanded you will see what i mean.

Sorry not to get back to the forum till now been extremely busy. Well here's the update. I've cleaned the registry, search for LW, searched for 4.16 (version) deleted anything that referenced LW, cleared trash and defraged. Guess what . . . . still didnt get rid of it. Its almost funny, sooooooooooo i said lets try this. I installed it into the J drive. Well that seemed to work to the point i can use LW Pro. Older version is on my computer but i'll be D**n if i can find it. I'm now in business with LW Pro. Thanks for the help on this frustrating issue.
