    Hi guys, need your help a friend of mine downloaded limewire and tried to download a song but since she has installed limewire she gets nothing but pop ups when she surfs the net.

    Most of the pop ups are advertising or saying that her computer is infected and tells her to download their products.
    Ive done a complete scan for her in safe mode got rid of any trace of limewire but still get pop ups is there a program i can use to get rid of these pop ups

    Many thanks

    help her by uninstalling Limewire and checking the comp with a good AV/anti-spyware
    whenever people agree with me, i always feel i must be wrong.

    LimeWire doesn't come with adware for a long time, so probably she downloaded a trojan or something off limewire that contaminated the system.

    Just use Spybot search & Destroy, it should solve your problem.

    I think you can download it here

    spybot sucks, i would rather recommend a program like "malwarebytes' anti-malware".

    I know how you probably got it you downloaded the mp3, then when u played it, it said it needed a plugin to play it and when u download it it was a virus.. you gotta be careful on limewire/ares
