Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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 Bad news

I got a guy who just flat out refused to give a full refund - only partial (less $9.95), even when I said I'd take it up with my CC company, and then finally said I'd report it to the Internet Crime Complaint Centre. Got put through to a super eventually, left a voice mail message, doubt that will do any good. Have to go to CC company I suppose.

I just have been scammed by a moviedownload site. I reported to the support team (the only contact) right away and I got a reply email saying that they do offer an 8 week refund period and a link to the clickbank customer report page. I already reported to the clickbank two days ago but no response yet. How can I email or call the clickbank directly?
thanks a lot,

I have a similar story. but you can get your money back. ring them up and demand it. they will tell you they have to charge the $9 processing fee but dispute this. they agreed to pay a full refund with very little hassle. YOU CAN GET YOUR MONEY BACK.

Go to this link here:
There is a address and a fax number (plus some online forms). Where there is a fax number, there should be a phone number to find out.....

yes, these people list a whole number of FREE downloading clients. however, their trap is a little different.

while they talk about "Lifetime Full & Unlimited Access for only (crossed out)37.95) (crossed out)29.95) - Now Only $23.46!!! (best offer!)", once you've gotten your login, and access their FAQ, you find out that their service is (see below:

I thought these programs were free, why am I asked to pay for them?
The software is free. What we offer is unlimited access to our exclusive members area where you will find over 50 different applications all related to the world of downloading so you can begin downloading the media of your choice now!

Trooper1023 is flying high

Here's the contents of the email I sent to
This is my order for a "Lifetime Membership".

I am very displeased to see that there was an ADDITIONAL charge placed on my credit card that I was not informed of ahead of time.

I am even more displeased because thus far I have had no luck getting FrostWire OR LimeWire to connect to their networks. I am on the verge of calling my credit card company and asking them to void the charge because I am not being provided with the services I paid for.

Here's their first reply.

Thanks for writing,

I have refunded your charge for the spyware.

Friendly Regards, Michelle
Customer Support
And here's there second, from Customer Support <>

Thanks for Joining,

Sorry to hear you are having a difficult time downloading.

What Operating System are you using ( Windows Me, Xp,2000, 98, 95, Mac ) ?
If you are a Mac user, Plese download from this link.

First make sure your pop up blocker is turned off. You will need to see the pop ups to install the program.

Internet Explorer is the best Internet Browser to use when installing programs. If you use the browser that your ISP(Internet Server Provider) automatically assigns your computer you may have some problems installing. Like AOL, NetZERO etc. Minimize the existing browser and click on the blue e on your desktop. Now try installing the program. If you do not have Internet Explorer please click on this link to install it free.

Please see this link for helpful information.

If you were unable to download Limewire or frostwire due to firewall restrictions, I suggest that you right click on your firewall icon, and choose disable. That will allow the program to download. After it is downloaded you need to enable it again. Here is limewire suggestions on firewalls.

If you have the limewireor frostwire program installed on your computer and the icon on your desktop and the Search Box is not activated and or you are not able to search for files. Please look at the bottom of the Limewire program on the left side, there will be 4 or 5 connection bars. If the connection bars are Green then you are connected to the internet and should be able to search for files. Type in the search box the name of the file (song,video,movie.) Then hit search. You should see the results in the middle of the screen.

If your Connection bars are Red then you are not connected to the Internet. Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet. If it is then please do the following.
In the upper left hand corner there is a file tab, click on it and choose connect. If it shows only disconnect option, choose that, then choose connect again. If that fails,
Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Program. Scroll down till you see Limewire if it's there. Click the Remove tab to remove this from your system.
Now shut down your computer and restart it.

Once rebooted, try installing Java again.
Visit this link: Install Java for your operating system.

If the java program does not run, Check the following :
Running with Internet Explorer on Windows Systems
The Java must first be enabled as follows:

1)Select Tools / Internet Options / Advanced from the browser’s menu bar

2)Make sure java is ticked.

3)Restart Explorer.

Please give me details so I can assist you.
If you can supply us with screen shots so we can see what your screen looks like that would be great.

You may need to run the Java offline installer in order to get it to run. This link will help you with that.

Limewire has a nice help section, if you encounter any problems you need help with.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you need more help, you paid a membership to have a great Support Team to Assist you with your problem that might arise from time to time..

Thanks Michelle @, Support

Hm. Hmmm. Lookie here, at all the common-sense troubleshooting methods they've gone through the trouble to collect and email to me. Funny how they aren't addressing the problem I reported! Rrrr.

I'll be back again, when next they reply to my latest attack, I mean, message.

ladycal is flying high

Quick update, after sending a couple of emails (which were not replied to) I finally took the bull by the horns and rang an 0845 number listed on help site, spoke to a guy called Ryan Smith (who was very helpful) and should be getting a refund via my credit card within 8-10 days. Fingers crossed. Will post again when confirmed. I had also contacted my credit card company desputing the charge, but had not completed the relevant paperwork. Told them of this so perhaps that helped.

Well add me to this list as well. I really feel like an IDIOT. I will take some solice from this experiance,Im glad they didnt clean out my bank account.
