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.

Default Help with a virus I got from limewire.

Ok my computer started acting up after I got finished downloading a music video from limewire. I quickly deleted all limewires files just incase it might help. It made it worse. It is like I let it free.

I scanned my computer with the virus scan and I think I found what I am looking for. But it wont let me delete it.

It says something about a copywrite agreement?

I didn't agree to anything about limewire giving me a virus I wont be able to delete it.

HELP please!

Default Limewire has installed virus

Limewire installs spyware and viruses and stuff into your computer when you download it.

I downloaded it from limewire.com. I went to delete it. I deleted every file that limewire had exept my music. I guess it thought I couldn't have my music if I didn't have limewire. So all my music was gone. Then the virus formed after deleting all the files.
After deleting all the files it shatterd my mcaffe virus scan. litterly.
I had an up to date mcaffe virus scan. When I deleted it it tore it up and stompt it into the ground. (another words i couldn't use it any more)(mcaffe keept popping up every like a thousand times saying that there are some files missing) I had to download it agian.

Then I downloaded it agian and it said I have 3 infected files. Went to delete them. It said that there is a copy write law or agreement protecting the adware I found. (thats a virus that changed it's name so it would be detected as adware) Theres no way I can delete it.

When you download limewire it gives you a virus. Simple is that. (THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN PROVE DIFFRENT!!!) Delete or open the files that the virus that limewire installed it will then begian to forum. It will eat your RAM like a ******* peace of cake.

You mean there is no way you can prove it. You said you were going to show proof before but I nor anyone else has seen it . You have no idea of what you are talking about. You downloaded a virus off of the Gnutella net and you are blaming LimeWire for what you did. There have been many others that have done the same as you and downloaded a virus from the net but they were smart enough to realize what they did and not blame LimeWire for there mistakes.

I and several others on this forum can tell you how to get rid of of the virus you downloaded from the net but with your attitude I doubt any body will. The link below is to your previous post where you and your friend were going to supply your so called proof.

When you get a little older and grow up come on back until then keep your thoughts to yourself because what you are posting is a Flat Out Lie

Dude. How can you show proof if your computer crashes when the virus strikes?

No I didn't have a virus. I downloaded limewire. I only used limewire when I had it. I didn't ever go to any websites just limewire. Why is there a copyright thing on it?

Can a mod please edit the subject or something?

LimeWire does not install any kind of malware. If you get malware, it was because you did it by your own actions. Dont blame limewire on your own stupidity.

I'm sorry, but I have to tell you that Limewire doesn't have stupidity-protection

There are people/companys that continue to try and hurt the Gnutella-Network which Limewire and many other P2P-clients connect to. They come up with traps that "innocent" people like you tend to fall into. Instead of crying about Limewire installed a virus, you should rather search for threads that deal with your issue.

P.S. If you had asked nicely for help on how to get rid of this virus, instead of blowing up and only reading what you wanted to hear, a lot of people here would have pointed you in the right direction.

P.P.S. You are only digging a deaper hole by continuing this naive stupidity

P.P.S. If you write an apology for your stupid behavior, maybe, just maybe someone will feel sorry for you and help

Your computer has either a virus or is ****** up. Now, LW isn't the virus, so you either got it elsewhere or from an infected download. End of discussion. Use latest virus and spyware definitions and clean your computer.

Ciao

Why do you keep on with the calling people stupid(Do you know me?)


btw I got rid of the virus. All I had to do was shutdown the computer go to safemode scan it and I was able to delete it.
I have uptodate virus protection. (very expencive)

But the computer just seemed to get worse after a delete them. I think there is something hidden that mcaffe isn't picking up.
But I havent found protection better than what I have. For free atleast.
