    OK, so I noticed today there was a carpet missing on my HD window, it only says...

    Applications
    Users
    System
    Library

    What could I have deleted? I already emptied the trash...

    Software like LimeWire is not running what could've happened?

    Those are normally the only directories visible on the root of the drive, plus /Developer if you have Xcode installed. It's possible that a normally-hidden system directory like /usr or /etc appeared previously but is gone again now. I wouldn't worry.

    Any idea why Limewire isn't running? I've installed it again but still it bounces off the dock...

    When you say software "like" LimeWire, what applications exactly are you talking about?

    Archive and install the OS again if apps aren't running.
