Lime.exe ist eine datei die von Phillips ist z.B. wenn man sich MP3 Player software downlaodet
I have never seen it before I installed the software for my Philip's GoGear MP3 player. It seems to only run when I have Win Media Player active. It also seems to slow down my system and cause WMP to act erratic. I can totally close WMP and my internet radio continues to play I have to go into Task Mgr and end the process. Very strange.

Best practices for resolving Lime issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with Lime. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the Lime.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detects and removes sleeping spyware, adware, Trojans, keyloggers, malware and trackers from your hard drive.
