Master t

I find Kazaa Lite much 'cleaner' and I regularly scan my system with Spybot and Ad-aware, as well as keeping my ant-virus up to date. I've had no problems

  VoG II 17:44 09 Apr 2004

Not without virus protection. AVG is free click here

You should also get Spywareblaster click here plus Ad-Aware click here plus Spybot click here

Keep all of these well up-to-date.

You may need CWShredder for some nasties click here

Apart from that, you are aware that it is illegal to download copyright material?

i have got upto date virus protection downloaded spybot and got spywearblaster will all this now make it safe to go on kazaa

aslong as your anti virus is kept up to date you should be ok . allways update your av.then if a virus comes along your av will stop the download

If you are looking for someone to say "yeah its safe"'ve no chance.

  spikeychris 18:07 09 Apr 2004

Maybe not. Arghh

To cut to the nitty gritty if you want viruses use it if you don't go down your local shop. Nothing is safe on Kazaa and they are also targetting people who use it downloading illegal software and music - you have been warned!!!
