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.

Here's the thing, though mickjapa. The virus (I think) makes LW start up on its own. Not shut down on its own. The virus is designed (from what I understand) to start up LW and allow access to file on yr computer using LW's peer to peer technology.

This is a different problem I think.

I'll try the Incoming searches suggestion, Sleepless. Thanks.

Anyone else? Administrators?

I have the same problem. On this site there is a suggestion to uninstall Jave 1.5 and re-install 1.4 as directed. I did this and i still crash!

Try LOTR's suggestions in this post
http://www.gnutellaforums.com/showpo...37&postcount=2

You could also see if changing compatibility makes any difference - right click on the LW icon > properties > change compatibility to Win NT or 2000.

Hi, I have a simillar problem but not exactly the same, so I just started a new thread. I hope that's not a bad thing.

When I click the cross-hair in the top right of the window, I have it set to minimise to the system tray. After a few minutes I want to view the progress of my downloads only when moving the curser over the LW icon, it disappears. I then reload LW to find that all my searches have gone and my downloads are having to reconnect. This has never happened before.

I'm not really clued up with all this about updating my java stuff so is there any down to earth solution?

"Birdy" - really like your quote ("A clean house is a sign of a broken computer"), I have something smart to say to my girlfriend when she complains about how my desk makes the room look bad. Cheers

Maybe your LW preferences have got a bit messed up. Try deleting the preferences folder when LW is properly closed (otherwise it won't work)...this will reset all options to default. You'll have to go back through & reset things afterwards as you had them. See points 2 & 3 below for instructions. If you've used older versions of LW you might have a folder in either location...so check both
Fixes for LimeWire

Try that first & see if it fixes things!

That quote's my excuse every time my house looks bad

I'll delete that other thread now that you're in this one...no worries!

Hi Again,

Thanks Birdie!!! It works beautifully now. Although, in case anyone else asks, i didn't realse it would cancel my current downloading downloads (I should have realised myself). I had only 30 mins remaining for one, now I have to wait 4 hours, but no probs cos now I can leave it for the 4 hours without having to re-connect. yeehaa

I used the quality line about having a clean house... with my girl. The look on her face when I said it put a smile on my face. Hehehehe

This can happen if LW crashes or if LW's not closed properly before shutting down the computer.

What version of LW are you using? If you use version 4.12.3 & later, incomplete downloads should resume from from where they left off rather than starting from scratch again, even if there's an unexpected shutdown. What version of LW are you using?

Good morning,

I am using version 4.12.6 and Java 1.5.0_09

I found the same problem with LW this morning. I left it open before sleeping at 5am and by 10.30am it had repeated that error so it took longer for the error to kick in this time which is why I thought it worked. I will try the same method of solution again soon. I don't have an anti virus on my pc at the moment and I think I have recently received a virus which might also be causing the problem. I think I have an error because 1) I can't access task manager through ctrl+alt+delete and 2) I unzipped a file in a folder recently when I think the error occured for the first time and now every time I open that folder it has about 2000 zip folders in it even after deleting them, i find them there again a little later.

I'm updating my McAfee antiVirus but the framework service is returning an error. When I have delt with this (soon), I'll try your solution again then let you know on the updated situation. Thanks for your interest in my probs.

Sounds like you do have a virus. Check out the sticky below. In point 5, there's a link to Norbiesworld...he offers free computer help. I'd suggest you go there & register, then follow the steps for computer help (post a HijackThis log in the Viruses & Trojans section).

WARNING: Viruses on the network you should be aware of

Default anyone one here

Hi guys, i've got the same problem.

No viruses as far as all my anti-virus and adaware programs are concerned, and the issue has only occured since i started using :
Limewire - 4.13.0 with
Java - 1.5.0_10


I can have limewire running in the background downloading while doing other things on my machine, and its fine. But if i leave the computer alone completely, i get limewire silently crashing. Usualy when i return, the programe has closed, but the limewire icon is still in icons in the right of my taskbar. When i click or run the mouse over the icon, it disappears.

Going by the amount of time left to go on my download, it appear to be crashing within an hour.

I have tried taking my computer back to the login screen, minimising everything, keeping everything except limewire minimised and tried keeping other memory intensive programmes running or shut down as well. I still have the same problem.

There is no record of a crash or programme problems in my computer logs.

Any advice would be great.

Cheers
Nic
