To my way of thinking , it's not so much doing things wrong as such but the danger that you put your machine into by exposing it to all sorts of things that you will wish you never had.

Even installing without using will result in lots of spyware being installed.

Download and run Ad-aware click here and Spybot S&D click here to remove some things. You ought to do a virus check as well.

Even with Kazaa Lite - it may not have its own nasties included but you certainly leave yourself open to attack/infection/infestation whenever you connect up to someone else's (unknown, unreliable) computer which is what these P2P things are all about.

Shhh If i'm not mistaken kazzalite is infact ilegal shh...

Because what they have done is striipped down KAZAA and removed the "spyware". Which i think would not be allowed...

Kazaa Lite is no more illegal than Kazaa. It all depends on what you use it for. Download copyrighted songs without permission is illegal, no matter HOW you do it. The other problem is that you could be downloading what you think is a song or a video (legally or not not) and find you've got a nasty Trojan or whatever because you've allowed Kazaa to bypass your firewall.
