    Its easy, go to your Applications folder (or what ever you call it) and drag the LimeWire folder to the trash; then select Finder>Empty Trash>OK.

    or

    While your in the Finder, press commad-F, search you computer for 'LimeWire.' What ever comes up, drag it to the trash and empty the trash.

    I don't know, this is my only good, fast, cheap sig I've ever had. My previous sigs were: Everytime a new OS comes out, my GPA goes through the floor.
