Default Ok i found the problem but how!?!?

ok so if you guys dont remember, i had a problem with my moms computer where it would restart, giving me all sorts of errors. Well i took her computer out, and put mine in its place so that we could use the internet. So i downloaded/installed all the programs that my moms computer had. And all of a sudden, my computer started shutting down too. Well i found out that it was Limewire that was doing it. I uninstalled it and it doesnt shut down anymore. HOWEVER, now i am not able to go into safe mode. When it tries it stops and gives me the blue screen of death saying IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Take note this was one od the other errors it gave me when it decided to just restart. Is this a memory problem? i have enough i think. 1GB of RAM and 2 HDDs 160GB and a 20GB. So, (1)How can i reverse this problem with my safe mode? and (2) what in Limewire could be restarting my computers? Thanks a bunch
Jim

Yes i have narrowed it down to limewire, and its pissing me off because its a great program. and re-installing windows does SQUAT..i did it on my moms, no luck. And no i didnt download any trojans, i dont think. I tired two different anti-viruses (at different times) and they found nothing. I used AVG and Trend Micro, the two best ones that i could find. So if i cant use limewire...are there any other programs that are like it? Because i REALLY REALLY liked this program...BEFORE IT STARTED CRASHING MY COMPUTERS!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

o can anyone explain the safe mode deal? because i cant. Should i just install windows over the top of my previous version?

format ALL of ur drives. because u dont kno where the virus is. reinstalling windows only formats the master drive. a virus can go into any drives, as long as it has .exe files. it has to be in ur drives. FORMATTING IT WILL HELP.

haha ares is crap, after u use for a while it will take forever to connect to server, and u cant do anything before that. every p2p has a chance of transporting virus. jus so u kno. p2p means person to person, and that person ur getting ur file from can put a virus on that file ur getting.
