Limewire is very nasty p2p Spyware.Download, install, update and run Adaware SE and Spybot Search & Destroy 1.3 Have both programs fix any problems found and see if that resolves your issue.

One of the greatest sources of trojans,viruses and other forms of malware is P2P networking. Tell your son that, legality aside, using P2P opens the computer to serious and continual compromise, and for that reason, is not to be used or installed on the computer.

Here is what the SANS institute says about P2P file sharing:

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Each year, SANS, a quasi-government sponsored company, issues a "top twenty" and for at least two years, P2P file sharing has been on the list. The list is a good read, and amounts to almost a "best practices" guide to computer security.
