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.

Angry Limewire installs Trojan!!!

Those *******s of Limewire install a Trojan in your computer!!!
Information below taken from Symantec:


Discovered on: December 27, 2001
Last Updated on: January 2, 2002 at 12:46:44 PM PST

Printer-friendly version Tell a Friend

W32.DlDer.Trojan is a Trojan which has two components that work together: Dlder.exe (40,960 bytes) and Explorer.exe (31,232 bytes), which is downloaded by Dlder.exe.

NOTE: Definitions dated before December 29, 2001, detect this as Backdoor.Trojan.

Also Known As: Trojan.Win32.DlDer

Type: Trojan Horse

Virus Definitions: December 29, 2001

Threat Assessment:

Low Damage:
Low Distribution:

Technical description:

This Trojan is known to be installed (as part of the normal installation) by two "freeware" file-sharing programs:

Grokster, which is a file sharing system.
Limeware, which is the LimeWire Gnutella Client.

During the installation process of these programs, you are asked if you want to install the (spyware) program "Clicktilluwin." Regardless of whether you click Yes or No, the Trojan code is installed.

This Trojan has two components:
Explorer.exe, which is the main Trojan.
Dlder.exe, which is the downloader for Explorer.exe.

The Trojan creates the hidden folder \Explorer in the \Windows folder, and then downloads Explorer.exe to that folder. The Trojan also copies Dlder.exe to the \Windows folder.

NOTE: Do not confuse the Trojan, which is copied as \Windows\Explorer\Explorer.exe, with the real Windows Explorer file, which is also named Explorer.exe. The genuine file is, by default, in stored in the \Windows folder, not the \Windows\Explorer\ folder. The Trojan creates the \Explorer folder under the Windows folder, and places the Trojan there.

The Trojan also adds one of the following values:

dlder C:\windows\explorer\Explorer.exe

dlder C:\windows\dlder.exe

to the registry key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

so that it runs each time that you start Windows.

The Trojan appears to be sending some information (such User-ID and IP address) to the following URL:

http:/ /

Removal instructions:

To remove this Trojan, delete files that are detected as W32.DlDer.Trojan, and remove the value that it added to the registry.

To remove the Trojan:

1. Run LiveUpdate to make sure that you have the most recent virus definitions.
2. Start Norton AntiVirus (NAV), and make sure that NAV is configured to scan all files. For instructions on how to do this, read the document How to configure Norton AntiVirus to scan all files.
3. Run a full system scan.
4. Delete all files that are detected as W32.DlDer.Trojan.

To edit the registry:

CAUTION: We strongly recommend that you back up the system registry before you make any changes. Incorrect changes to the registry could result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Please make sure that you modify only the keys that are specified. Please see the document How to back up the Windows registry before you proceed.

1. Click Start, and click Run. The Run dialog box appears.
2. Type regedit and then click OK. The Registry Editor opens.
3. Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

4. In the right pane, delete any of the following values that exist:

dlder C:\windows\explorer\Explorer.exe

dlder C:\windows\dlder.exe

5. Navigate to and delete the following subkey:


6. Click Registry, and then click Exit.
