Kazza not loading

I haven't used kazaa for a week and tried to open it up today and found that it doesn't connect. Is there a problem or should I uninstall it and then reinstall. How can i do this without losing the existing user name. What about spyware is it affecting it or will it cause more problems by reinstalling it.

Thanks

Kazaa is riddled with spyware plus there are various other unsavoury downsides to it, if you remove any it's spyware it will not run.

'Kazaa not loading' is a good thing.

'Kazaa not on your system' is a better thing.

Even if you uninstall Kazaa, the spyware, called Cydoor will remain on your PC and continue to "report" on your surfin'habits. Uninstall Kazaa then go to click here and download a program called Ad-aware 6.0 (it's free). Then install Ad-aware and run it - it will remove all spyware on your PC - not just Kazaa spyware but any other "data mining" software lurking in your registry.

The go to http:\\doa2.host.sk and download Kazaalite, which is the same program as Kazaa but with all the spyware and pop ups and advertising removed. Clean as a whistle.
