Well, screwed!!!


Probably a self extracting program, maybe trojan/virus. Um.. Keep working at it. But be sure to set a system restore time..

Do you happen to have Norton SystemWorks? If you do, there's something called "Wipe Data" and that'll probably work.

Yeah, you gotta close lime wire and all the other programs that can access it and play it. It should work.
