selectt model

go into component mode and make sure vertices are enabled

select all the vertices in the leg area

open the component editor. It will list all bones influencing the legs.

if you see any arm bones influencing, just zero them out.

Hey you havent named your bones at all .... First name your bones correctley ..... The bones on the left should have a left prefix and those on the right should have a right prefix like right arm , right forearm , left shoulder , left knee.

After that It'll be easier to know what's what in the component editor.

And also in the pic you have selected all of the vertices of the body except for some . Select only the vertices of legs and then know what bone shoudnt affect them , and zero that bone out.
