Thread: What are all of these files from limewire?

  1. #1
    I saw in the bottom corner of limewire i was sharing 928 files, i know i am not though. So i decided to look into this and looked at the library bit, then went to completed and here are all these zip files. They are music, software and movie names but each file is only 851kb. What are they all and where have they all come from?

    I just virus scanned them and there all viruses and worms. Since there zip files can i just delete them or would it be better to quarantine them and then delete them?

    don't open them, delete them if you can.
