So I use Limewire to download songs and pictures, etc. And then one time I looked in the folder that contains those downloads and found that there was this picture with pornographic name. The actual picture was nonexistent (it was a blank screen when I pulled up the preview). However, I can't figure out how to delete this thing, delete is not an option when I right click, it won't let me move it to the recycle bin, or even just another folder. Any way to fix this?

Boot up in SAFE mode from a cold start,,,,not a restart.
Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the file in question and see if you can delete it from there.
Highlight it with your mouse and hit the Del key on the right side of your keyboard.

Limewire is a well known problem child, as it comes with Spyware attached.
I'd not have it on my PC at all.
I understand from my own Software Guru that the Spyware can be removed, if you know how.

Good Luck to you and Happy Computing.
