Instead of using the proprietary Limewire program, why not use a Linux native torrent client. It will do the exact same thing, you simply must go with a browser to torrent websites, find the torrent file that you want in the page, copy the link, and paste it into the torrent client. These native clients use much less system resources, and don't contain spyware. LameWire.(Notice the play on words there, lol) LimeWire causes security vulnerabilities and could get you hacked.
If your using KDE, try Ktorrent, , bittorrent works, Gtorrent, there's a number of them. I prefer BitTorrent. It's light weight, simple to use, and works on just about any Distribution.
So tell me what distribution you are using. Ubuntu? Fedora, SuSe? Then I can help you more.

1) Visit http://www.limewire.com/download/version.php and download the package for Other Systems.
2) Extract the downloaded zip file.
3) Add a link on your desktop to the limewire folder:
Right-click the desktop, select "Create launcher" and enter
Name: Limewire
Command: java -jar /home/your_username/LimeWire/LimeWire.jar
(note: this assumes that the zip file was extracted to your home directory; if not, you will have to make changes to the command as required)

If I'm not mistaken, the Aspire One's use Linpus Linux. Linpus is simply a fork of Redhat/Fedora.

Try using Frostwire (basically the open source brother of Limewire), it has an RPM package for Red Hat and Fedora, so it *should* work on Linpus...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linpus

http://www.frostwire.com/?id=downloads

Note, both Limewire and Frostwire require java, so if you don't have java installed, you're going to need to install it.

How did you install it and how are you trying to remove it?

Check whether your OS has synaptic package manager. If so, you should be able to remove it by unchecking the box for frostwire.
If not, try this in a terminal: sudo rpm -e frostwire (you may need to specify the version number; this can be found out - if rpm works at all - by running sudo rpm -q frostwire first).
Note: please, use proper English.
