Any other relevant information that you think may help ....... Try to make your post descriptive, specific, and clear so members can quickly and efficiently help you.

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.

Symantec's definition of a Trojan horse:

"Type: Trojan Horse
A program that neither replicates or copies itself, but does damage or compromises the security of the computer. Typically it relies on someone emailing it to you, it does not email itself, it may arrive in the form of a joke program or software of some sort."

I think that describes what you included in your software !!!

My problem is you. Now before you refuel your flamethrower, let me explain.

You come here to rant and criticize the moderators, and then say that you're leaving. Not very constructive. Not helpful. Invitation for a flame war.

But I see that you have a good point to make. I could have gone about voicing my own opinion in a less offensive manner, and you could have too. But the fact is- we both didn't.

I haven't been very diplomatic, and so I apologize for all the feathers I've ruffled. Next time you need help, please state your problem without attacking all the moderators. You'll get a more positive response from people like me.

I apologize for what you perceived as personally criticizing you or the other moderators. I was very disappointed to find out that a trojan was installed on my system from your spyware without my knowledge. I was disappointed that several people posted this problem to the forums, but we never got a response back. I was disappointed that the software was and still is available for download to infect more people. For the first time, it made me worry to use or download any new version of LimeWire.

Unhappy 2.0.3 beta...Ok...well...

clicktilluwin is gone...

But there's still C:\Program Files\adp\bin\adp.exe which is installed, runs and contacts It downloads the Bargain Buddy installation program, which fires off it's own permanent process of course, to track web site patterns and who knows what.

There's no hope.

This is no different than the dlder.exe/explorer.exe trojan. adp.exe is the downloader for, the Bargain Buddy installation program. c:\program files\bargain buddy\bin\bargains.exe is the trojan that stays in memory.

A BEARSHARE beta was also infected with this virus. After being warned by their users in their forums, it seems the developers acted appropriately and removed it so it could no longer infect more people. Why is the infected LimeWire version 2.02 still available to unsuspecting users ? At least one developer at LimeWire has acknowleged they are aware of the problem...but it's still available. Doesn't make sense to me.

Zildy: are you <i>absolutely</i> sure adp wasn't on your computer before installing LimeWire. And did you opt out of Gator and Toptext?
