i recently downloaded limewire and after i did i kept getting pop-ups, even though i have McAfee anti-virus and have blocked pop-ups etc

i deleted limewire thinking it was that but it wasnt. weneva i open internet i get a pop-up/advertisment from uptown engine and i get a 'bubble' from windows telling me its from uptown engine...

i went into add/remove programmes and deleted it because thats what yahoo answers advised me to do, but its still here and its annoying me to bits!!! :enough!:

anyone know what to do??? how do i get rid of it???

I recommend you use Spybot Search and destroy and Lavasoft Adaware. Both are free to download :p

Yeah, thats the problem with limewire, once you install it - you get adware in your comp.


I think its illegal to use it aswell, and because we have youtube - we can listen to the stuff off there directly, and alhamdulillah because we don't listen to songs - we don't really need limewire anyway.
