    Help! :(
    With the spyware blaster, I now can't run Kazaa because it is telling me a program is blocking their advertisement. Is there some way to find out which boxes I should unclick to let Kazaa ads come through. Or is this a totally different problem?

    Hi bailly,

    Welcome at Wilders. :)

    Why give spyware the chance to mess up your computer?

    Hi bailley,

    If you really wish to use Kazaa then I would suggest you download
    "Kazaa Light" Which doesn't contain spywares. ;)

    Also try WinMX which is free of spyware etc. Though I am told that it is not as fast as Kaza. :D

    But it contains lots of dangerous stuff, with Kazaa you can really test your AV and AT programs...... :rolleyes:

    Smokey - Please do tell us what "dangerous stuff" KL contains.

    I've been using it for quite awhile now and have never had a problem. Pete

    Hi Pete,

    I think Smokey didn't mean the stuff in KL, but the viruses and other malware spreading through the KaZaa file sharing network.
    In that regard the light version is no different from the full (legal) version.

    As a sidenote: IMO by using KL you are helping to keep this network in his place as the biggest one, and in doing so luring others into downloading the full version.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    To All:

    Thanks for all your quick replies, maybe I can convince my son to go with WinMX
