    hi guys,

    ok i'm having a problem with installing KaZaa (the free version). now, when it's installing, it hangs up on step 5. it doesn't go beyond that. previously, i had the same problem, and through luck, i got it to install properly. i don't know how.
    Now i'm encountering the same problem. it always seems to hang on step 5. i have a 64kbps connection that's always on (broadband).

    Any Suggestions on how to fix this or a better way to install KaZaa?
    Thanks.

    Ryan

    Hi Ryan,

    Probably not the answer you were looking for, but I wanted to mention it anyway: http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/articles/p2p/

    yeah thank pieter. i've heard KaZaa has a lot of spyware/adware and a high possible leak for hackers to break into my computer. what do you think of KaZaa lite?
    By the way, i got KaZaa to work, now i'm thinking of uninstalling it again. lol.

    Hi ryan423 :)

    I use kazaalite. It doesn't have all the spyware that the full Kazaa app. has.

    Featues are the same, just no crapware. ;)

    When i use it iam very careful to scan every file for malware before i open it.

    Hope this helps.
