Hi again, have two programs I have downloaded, MP3 Rocket and Limewire, am running, Adaware, Spybot, and use XP Firewall, have chosen to allow both programs to run, with nil success, other programs etc no problem, these are paid for subscriptions. When I double click on them nothing happens at all, and now my Task Mgr has been Hijacked, take these Hijackers out back and shoot em :thumbsup: :flowers:
Any ideas?, thanks in advance.

Any time you choose to use P2P file sharing programs, you increase your chance of getting some type of malicious program.
Always scan with your Antivirus anything you download!
Many P2P programs also install malware.
What version of Limewire are you using?

Limewire (The most current version of Limewire is reported to include spyware. LimeWire 4.9.28 is clean. Older and newer version may not be.)

Clean and Infected File Sharing Programs

Additional information on various P2P programs:
Clean/Infected P2P Programs


Have you checked your Restricted Sites Zone in IE, to make sure they aren't listed?
Click Tools.
Select Internet Options.
Select the Security tab.
Click Restric.. sites, then click the Sites... button.
Check to see if the sites are listed there.
If they are you can highlight the site, then click the Remove button.

You can also check Spybot to make sure TeaTimer isn't blocking them:
Right click on the TeaTimer system tray icon and select Settings.
This will bring up TeaTimer's "White & Black List".
There are four (4) Buttons accross the top of the "White & Black List":

* Allowed processes
* Blocked processes
* Allowed registry changes
* Blocked registry changes

If you donít see all four buttons, try expanding the window to the right.

You can review all the entries that you've stored.
See if there's anything in there that relates to you P2P programs.
You can delete entries by clicking on the scripted black "X", to the right of the entry.
When your finished, click the OK button.

Thanks for tips, not working though, Spybot is clear of them, IE hasn't blocked them, and as my Task Manager is not working, also can't Regedit either, means some idot has hijacked some of my system, should be a prison term for doing this

I noticed you have a HJT log being worked on.
Once you post your log, you shouldn't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.
Wait until your log has been declared clean, then try to fix any remaining problems.
