well my incredibly smart friend installed Limewire on my computer and cannot get rid of all the pieces of this thing called Limeshop leeft on my computer...I got rid of it in the registry but there are some instances of it popping up when I right click some links in IE. I don't know where to look in the registry or in other places to clear this out...if anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it

^^^what he/she said^^^
Limewire is an older p2p app that like Kazaa etc, clogs your system with spyware etc.
It's also a biatch to get rid of.
Slap your friend from all of us here too :p

no it's not spyware...I run adaware and spybot all the time and it has never come up. I'm just wondering if there are registry keys that I can delete or change to get it from showing up in some right click functions mainly in IE

k perhaps I shoulda been more specific...lets call it pestware ;)

To fully remove Limewire, perform the following steps

begin by backing up the registry/system, and/or create a restore point.
Just in case you mess up
:p

Use Task Manager to kill these running processes if applicable

programfilesdir+\limeshop\limeshop.exe
programfilesdir+\limeshop\popup.exe
programfilesdir+\limewire\2.8.6\limeshop.exe
programfilesdir+\limewire\2.8.6\limewire.exejavarun.exe
limewire.exe

Next, use the run command in the start menu, and unregister the following dll's. using Regsvr32

programfilesdir+\limewire\2.8.6\browserpage.dll
programfilesdir+\limewire\2.8.6\limewire20.dlllimeshop.dll
limewire20.dll
personality.dll
shopping.dll
system.dll
updates.dll
userdata.dll

REBOOT!

Upon reboot completion, use regedit to remove these registry items
(if present)

Finally, using plain old windows explorer remove the following
directories, if they exist

profilepath+\.limewire
profilepath+\start menu\programs\limewire
programfilesdir+\limeshop
programfilesdir+\limewire


That about wraps it up. Good Luck.

If you want further info on the files and references here, take a look at
The article over at http://www.safersite.com/PestInfo/L/Limewire.asp where I obtained the above info for you.
They don't have much good to say about LimeWire's activities over there :D

That is the ugliest, vilest POS I have ever seen. The manufacturer should be indicted.

Try the home use trial version of Pest Patrol and see if it has the removal tools enabled. That much manual removal is risky unless you are very experienced.

Good luck.

well pest patrol can find everything but won't remove it or quarantee it. The funny thing is that it didn't find anything to do with limeshop when I scanned my comp. that removal would be a pain so I don't know what I'm going to do ...wish there was a freeware program to do this...thanks for all the help guys

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
