  1. Everytime I try to install Limewire Pro, (when I click the .exe installer).

    I get an error that says

    "The setup file might be corrupt, please download a new one."

    I have already downloaded new ones but it still says the same error, and it even gives me the same error when trying to install BearShare or Kazaa.

    Here is my Hijack This Log:

    You do know that there is spyware stuff in Limewire and it is just as bad as Kazaa right?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    As Jimbo said. Limewire is not a programme you should have on your machine. This forum has lots of instances, where peoples systems have become infected with the use of Limewire.

    Go HERE and follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment, after doing the above.

    You did NOT follow the advice given. Just putting up your HJT-log does not cut it.
    You have to remove the specifically NAMED programs/files first.
    Furthermore, your log is unreadable without the backslashes, do NOT modify it in any way please!
