My Name is Jim. I am from Alaska and a surf-a-hol-ic (J/K). But I do spend too much time on this thing and I made a mistake of going to Limewire because someone told me I could get some free music there and it's legal lol.

I found out nothing is for nothing. I now have a virus from hell, uh, received a trojan offering.

So here I am begging for mercy and hoping to find some help in getting rid of a virus that I or any of my many ad-ware, antivirus, malware and spyware doctor can't seem to do (oh they can find it, but nothing has been able to get rid of it).

So, howdy.

The problems with P2P are twofold. Many of the the applications themselves are questionable when it comes to ad-ware, and the files downloaded come from untrustworthy sources (even if accidental, the files can often simply pass on an infected downloaded earlier).
I am sure BC can help you.
