Limewire opening, cant use task manager

By gazsharpe101

  1. Hi, I am running Windows XP Professional and I have recently (only in the last 2 or 3 days) started having trouble with Limewire. It keeps reopening automatically when I close it down off the taskbar and I also cannot do ctrl+alt+delete to open the task manager. It happens with different versions of limewire. I have done checks on my PC using the following programs:

    Lavasoft Adaware 6
    Pc Bug Doctor
    Registry Mechanic
    Spybot Search & Destroy
    Spyware Blaster
    Norton Antivirus 2005 (complete system scan)
    AVG Anti-Virus 7.0

    None of the above programs showed up with any spyware/viruses. The only one that came up with problems was registry mechanic and that fixed the 40 problems that it found and pc bug doctor came up with 2 clsid errors and fixed one of those and 53 other errors to do with program shortcuts etc and fixed all of those.

    I will post my hijackthis log file below to see if anyone can spot any problems and suggest any solutions:

    Thank you for any help it is very much appreciated.

    P.S. I have also found that I have had one two occasions, 5700 zip folders placed in my Ares shared folder and in a folder called "complete" at the address C:\Documents and Settings\Gareth Sharpe\Complete on my hard-drive. These were all pornographic video titled zip folders and from what I know I think they contained a file called video.exe but I deleted these and have no idea where they came from as I dont use these programs often. I should point out that I have a 3MB Broadband connection with NTL which is on a LAN with 5 other users, none of which have reported any problems similar to mine.

    Thank you again for any help.

    When you stop downloading unpaid-for programs etc., then you can come back.
