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 Limewires pop up screens not clickable...

I've been using Limewire for a few years now with no problems until now. I have not changed anything in my computer system to cause this problem either. I use XP and had Limewire 4.14. No firewall blocking this application. Now when I load the software it's frozen. The pop up asking me to upgrade to Pro just sits there. Nothing is clickable "Later, Yes, Why, the X to close. All the buttons that are involved with Limewire just have no purpose.

I have to Cntl Alt delete to bring up my process to abandon Limewire from running. Doing this brings up "Task manager Warning: Terminating a process can cause undesired results including loss of data and system stability...blah blah blah Teminate this process, yes or no.

I've unistalled and reinstalled with no luck, deleted my .limewire folder to hopefully reset my setting, and tried the 4.18 version. In 4.18 set up it asks me how I want to configure, but I get the same thing....nothing is clickable. My mouse setting work fine on everything except Limewire pop up screens. Since I can't pass these screens, I can't get to the main Limewire interface. Can someone help me with my frustrations?

Things i would suggest:

1. Download the OFFLINE version of Java (do not install yet!) Java Downloads for All Operating Systems - Sun Microsystems (about 15 MB download size, 2nd option which is the OFFLINE one) OR use this link Java Offline installer direct download.
2. Download the OFFLINE version of LW: Find a LW installer here (do not install yet!)
3. Go to Start menu -> All Programs -> LW -> Uninstall.
4. Using your Add/Remove Programs control panel, remove all versions of Java.
5. Run either or both of these utilities: (a) Crap Cleaner, &/or (b) Microsoft Windows Install Clean Up. _ (For CCleaner, click the Registry tab to use that function.) (For Windows 7 to 10 see Fix problems that block programs being installed/removed as the MS Install Clean Up alternative.)
6. Reinstall Java using the above version. (You will probably need to reboot after reinstalling Java) *Windows 7-8 & Vista users Right-Click the Java installer & choose 'Run as Administrator' before installing. This is a must for Windows 7 or later.
7. Reinstall LW using the above version. . (Vista users should right-click the LW installer & choose Run as Administrator.)
8. If still problems, delete the LW preferences folder whilst LW is closed, found here: Fixes for Limewire when LW isn't operating as it should
9. If still issues, try steps 5 and 6 here; re: Run as Administrator & maybe Change compatibility mode.
10. Tip: Purge the Downloads Queue! (click on blue link)

Limewires pop up screens not clickable...-windows-7-lw-java-set-installers-admin.gif - Sample image for setting both Java & LW installers to Run as Administrator in Windows 7. For steps 6 and 7 above.



BTW since you have updated your LW & deleted the LW preferences, the LW preferences folder will no longer be called .limewire, it will be called limewire & is found in a different location, see Deleting your Limewire Preferences folder. (Different LW prefs name & location was only applicable to those who started with LW 4.10 or earlier.)


(Make sure to click on the Registry tab on left of CCleaner to scan & fix issues. Unused Extensions, Obsolete Software, etc. are things which can affect operation of Java & other programs. CC gives option to backup registry just in case of problems. You can use first tab above registry to safely clean up other things any time. Most technical forums give thumbs up to using CCleaner above all other registry cleaners!)

My computer has 24 megs of ram and two xeon processors, 4 scsi drives and I have installed to D drive.
Hope this helps
