Hi guys [:(!]
It's bluey here writing to you using one of weston favell library puters
Why you may ask? well it's now been 12 months since no1 son loaded Kazaa on our pute. On sat we received a programme from them called newdotnet4 which has deleted versions 1&2 and now prevents us from gaining access to the net[:(!][:(!][:(!][:(!][:(!]
I AM BLOODY ANNOYED to say the least.
I warn you all who have this GET RID OF IT NOW!!!!!!!!
And to those who are considering downloading it DON'T DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT [V][V][V][V]
On Chatting to local shops it seems we will now require a new hard drive and poss a new motherboard as well.
For what you gain from this site the hassle is just not worth it.
It will be some time before I am back with you.

Get rid of Kaaza and load Kazaa lite. Kazaa is full of spyware. I did an Ad-Aware after my daughter loaded Kazaa without me knowing and found oodles of spy agents.

I think if you read some back threads Newt has advised getting rid of Kazaa as well.

As I said earlier, and I have been told my several people, Kazaa is bad news.

If you follow this link this will tell you all about spyware.

Ad-Aware6 is a free down load which enables you to wipe off all the spy ware. It is best to run Ad-Aware 6 in conjucntion with Spybot (another free programme)

Sammy,


My son in law used Kazaa, although I told him about the dangers and he has had nothing but trouble with viruses. At last he has taken it off and all is normal again.

I have used Kazaa for some time and had no problems. If you are going to use it make you use kazaa lite, Once installed go here http://www.ianxxi.ezbytes.co.uk/computers/kazaa_cydoor.htm and it will tell you how to remove the spyware file. You have to replace it with another file which will alllow the program to run. that file is also at the address above. If you are allow your kids to use Kazaa then you should make sure that you check all the files that they download for Virus's before you open or install them. Even if it ifs a MP3 file that they are downloading it could still contain a Virus.

a couple of problems that you can face with both versions of Kazaa is that there are several unscrupulus people out there that think it's fun to attach files to mp3's. you download the mp3 and lo and behold the file is on your PC.
The first time you play the mp3 you can execute the file which can be anything from a trojan to something more harmfull such as the program that Steve looks to have had.
One of the biggest culprits of this was a record company who 'infected' a load of Celine Dion mp3s by replacing them with such a program.
Totally unethical and the legality of it could be questioned - but that's also what the record company said about Kazaa and other PSPs

Steve,

I can't see you needing a motherboard unless it is an old system. What size was your hard-drive?

I think the shop might be trying to make a few quid out of Bluey. Was it PC World by any chance?.

Hi Haydn, When you shut down Kazaa it is sometimes still running. If you right click on the task bar at the bottom of your screen and open up the Task Manager and go to Applications and see if it is still running...If so close it down from there. Your computer will take some time to shut down if Kazaa is still active.

Nice one STU but a little bit cruel. If you are just looking to download music and the oss video, This is the best file sharing program to use...http://www.winmx.com/

Now i know this is gonna be a daft question but what the hell is kazza?

I had a look through my downloads file the other night & found a program on it which i hadn't downloaded.

It probably got put on there while i was looking at an adult site (for educational purposes you understand [;)]) i deleted it & i've had no problems before or since.

I did have a problem with my "glued on" prog but thats sorted out now.

I'm running zone alarm pro & avg 6 (grisoft) which i DL'd when norton peed me off by not picking up on a major pain in the ass virus (Klez).

Hi Trogg, Kazaa is a file sharing program which allows you download Music, Software, Porn etc etc from other users who use the same program Free of charge. You found somthing on your computer which was more than likely a Dialer Program. When you are surfing the Net for Porn (for educational Purposes) You will sometimes get a little file installed on your computer called a dialer. when you find it you think Oh! what's that...you click onit and it dials a premium rate telphone number (1.50 a min) so if you do get these files on your comp just delete them never ever click on them.
