Some questions :

1) Which file types ( rightclick propperties)
2) With what you are trying to play ( WMP?)
3) Have you tried to scan those files with your anti virus?

I suspect that there is something very tricky in those songs. Please post back what you may find and especially the virus scan would be very interesting to see

Hi anglefan4life.
It was suggested you come here because of the possibility that your computer is infected. Go here Preparation Guide For Before posting a Hijack This Log & run through all the steps & then post a HijackThis log in this forum: HijackThis Log & Analysis. An expert will come along & help you clean up your computer. Wait for someone to reply. Do not reply yourself (your log may get overlooked ) & do not make any changes to your computer. If no one has replied in five days, go here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic14717.html .

To clarify what hillbillygreek said:

I suggest you follow the directions in this guide. Then create an HJT log, you will find the directions in the guide.

Now edit the topic you just created in the HiJack this forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/82881/limewire-is-acting-wierd-now/ You will find an edit button 3rd button from the right at the bottom of your post. Briefly summarize what the problems are, what you have done to try to solve it, and what worked and didn't work and paste in your HJT log.

After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.
