Kazaa Plus the paid for version states an ad-free/pop-up free programme. Does this mean that it it also would not install any spyware type applications as well? I ask as I have just run a NoAdware program and it has found many infected files/cookies of which some are directly related to the installation of the free version of Kazaa and if removed causes it not to work properly. Will I be free of such parasites if I get the paid version or is that just wishful thinking? Any advice would be much appreciated, as my girls wish to continue downloading their music whilst Dad would like to cleanse his machine! Thanks
i have just sent you an e-mail containing a portion of a notepad file from the install of kazaa (from the program to remove it), kazaabegone
anyone wishing to remove kazaa fully should download "kazaabegone" (do a search on google) run and see what files are lurking on your system.
ANY P2P file sharing site will allow virus's and other nasties to be shared/spread, to protect yourself get a good virus checker (and update it regularly) and also a firewall both are available free via the internet so there are no excuses for anyone getting caught out by not having protection.
It depends what type of files you download off it. In the past I have downloaded plenty of software that is not what it is called and plenty of videos that cause loads of porn websites to pop up that then try to install dialers and other rubbish on your computer. Also, it is easy for anyone to change a file extension so that people think they are downloading music when it could infact be a virus
