  1. I'm trying for help to get some type of malware off my computer. when I click on my subject to search in google, etc. I am directed to random websites that continually have nothing to do with what I am searching for. LimeWire was the last thing I ran b4 all this happened.

    FYI:P2P or 'file sharing: P2P Warning:
    Note: Even if you are using a "safe" P2P program, it is only the program that is safe. I suggest that you uninstall Limewire for the following reasons:
    • As long as you are using file sharing networks and programs which are from sources that are not documented, you cannot verity that a download is legitimate.
    • Malware writers use these program to include malicious content.
    • Fie sharing is usually unmonitored and there is a danger that your private files might be accessed.
    • The 'sharing' also includes malware that the shared system has on it.
    • Files that are illegal can be spread through file sharing.

    Please read the information on P2P Warning to help you better understand these dangers.
