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 Incomplete Download File won't delete at all.

Hi. I'm distressed. I have a couple "Incomplete" downloads that do not show up on LW program, but when I go to the folder through my computer the file appears in the "Incomplete" folder. I try to delete it, but the popup message states:
"Cannot delete numanuma.mp3:Cannot find specified file
Make sure you specify the correct path and file name.
What can I do? I have sat for three hours trying to figure it out. I've tried right-clicking them, but "delete" is not an option. I've tried dragging them to the Recycle Bin, but I'd get the cirle with a dash through it. I've even uninstalled LimeWire in hopes that the entire "LimeWire" folder and its subfolders(including "Incomplete") would disappear.

What am I to do now?

Please help me.

Oh my god! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! You truly are Lord of the Rings(... web rings ).
It was the classic story. In the begining all the hyperlinks you sent didn't work, I was losing hope as I installed each software on your list and they didn't fix my problem. I was just adding more and more things to my disk space. I was ready to give up on the last one, saying "It is just going to be more waste of space on my computer. Nothing can help me with this problem." Then I said, "Oh, what the heck, I've gone this far." So I intsalled the program from your last hyperlink, "Unlocker", and tried it out. At first it said that the "folder has no Locks". I pounded my fist on the table in great disappointment. I glumly clicked the "OK" button. And then another window popped up, "But we can help you with this folder" I clicked on the drop-down list, selected 'Delete' and "poof" the folder was GONE! I didn't believe my eyes! I restarted the computer, it was still gone! I've been trying to get rid of that headache for weeks! Thank you Lord of the Rings!!!

Default Lord Of The Rings (Unlocker)

I too had a file on my desktop that I could not get rid of no matter what I tried.

Used 'Unlocker' and it was instantly gone.

Thanks for the link 'Lord of The Rings'. A very useful bit of kit.

Default Norton Commander

Cannot delete numanuma.mp3:Cannot find specified file

I kept Norton Commader, a DOS program from Peter Norton (before Symantec bought him out), which lets me get rid of lots of things that windows xp refuses to delete and it works from within windows in ordinary or (if necessary) safe mode. It is called NC.exe. I kept it on a bootable floppy for checking out PCs at auctions and for helping other people with problem PCs. I put it on all my computers.
