    Every single time I turn my computer on I get a error that says
    : system cannot find file...It doesn't say what file just that it can't find file. I uninstalled Limewire a couple of days ago because I'm stuck on a 56k dial up so I can't download anything worthwhile. I have a feeling it has something to do with that. it's still in the add/remove programs but I uninstalled it. I have no idea how to get rid of it manually! I'm perplexed :confused:

    well the problem at startup went away ( idon't know how I did it with System Mechanic) but it's gone the only thing is I tried getting rid of Limewire 2.4.3 out of the add remove programs but it won' t leave...

    I've tried everything to get Limewire 2.4.3 out of the add remove programs...I tried system mechanic, my registry, and Tweak ui. I cannot find a way to reinstall it because the new version is out and I can't find the old version. I have tried everything and I'm getting very ver frustrated...please please please help!!!!!!!!

    Here is where you will find the culprit. Just go to the following registry key, and delete Limewire

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

    Hope this helps

    thanks for the help but I looked there and I can't find anything that says Limewire or anything to do with Limewire... in the same place under the Installshield Uninstall Information there is a weird folder that is titled 457BA...and a long string of numbers and letters...(is this Normal?) Again thanks for the help this is my first post and I'm getting a lot of help...

    tuffgong 4 try the program Add & Remove plus!

    It can easily remove programs from your computer and delete the entries in the windows controlpanel add and remove programs.

    have a look a www.aurelitec.com
