...I'd STRONGLY advise NEVER using the "k" word in this forum. Be warned, you have opened yourself up to much hassle, it causes major problems!

use kazaa lite - it's much better.

how do you use kazaa lite? I use the one off kazaa.com and i then use an ad remover. What does kazaa lite entail?

The word Masochist springs to mind......

It contains spyware. Kazaa Lite is good, or check out alternatives including Shareaza or WinMX (my choice) go to: click here.

The download failing is the best thing it could do for you!

not going to harp on but not being able to download kazaa media desktop is a blessing in disguise as it has a few nasties that are installed with it

Avoid Kazaa like the plague.

Kazaa also caused me a lot of unwanted hassle and i couldn't remove so I reformatted my hard disc instead!!

If Kazaa is such a problem, what other good free music sharing programs are there?
