Open your task manager and look under processes for lime wire... if its there, end the process... however, Ill tell you right off the bat that Limewire/gnutella networks are virus magnets and should be avoided like the plague...

Would not touch Limewire ever in my experience all you will get is files loaded with Trojans and virus's.

No P2P site is really trust worthy. There are a few torrent sites out there that only host legal torrents, but you won't find any music or movies on them.

You can buy and download music and movies from Amazon.com. These are 'clean'.

If you don't find it currently running, the program folder may still be there if you previously uninstalled it. Check for that too.

I so agree on this one, more and more PC's a day gets virused because of countless Limewire downloads.
