    Yes. Don't use Limewire. It's a great way to get viruses and malware.

    It sounds like he's already infected.

    Well, if Limewire shuts down, then the OP’s problem is solved…in a way.

    And, in a sense, he can thank the RIAA for solving it for him, though I somehow doubt he will.

    Doubt if your infected mate...Don't install Java from some link, download java installer and and make sure you run it as adminstrator. Won't install unless you give it the proper permission to do so.

    Yeah you have to sign a disclosure to get infected.
