I recently installed limewire on my computer and one of the files i downloaded from it was infected.  It made it so that limewire would keep on poping up trying to launch its self even though i deleted it.  i have run Hijackthis and have symantec antivirus also ad-aware anti virus and spybot search and destroy. but i still have not been able to get rid of this virus. here is a copy of what my hijackthis brought up.
