ARG! who still uses KaZaA?
im talking about the one you get from kazaa.com , if you use it, please, grab some sense!! ack o.o;;;
if you use KaZaA seriously, have you ever heard of KaZaA Lite?
as a little experiement i did this:
i downlaoded KaZaA from kazaa.com and ran it, downloaded a few MP3s for testing purposes and then ran AVG, it found a virus. k, now, thank god it was able to delete the virus before anythign happened. Then i ran Ad-Aware6 and it found 40 files continaing spyware and adware. I uninstalled KaZaa and deleted the mp3s i got form it. Then i went and got KaZaA Lite from www.k-lite.tk and installed, dloaded a couple mp3s, ran AVG in the same maner, it found nothing. i ran Ad-Aware6 and it only found 1 adware thinger i got from a popup while surfing the net...damn gator... So then i uninstalled KaZaA Lite and got normal KaZaA again and ran it and dloaded a couple mp3s, ran AVG, no viruses, but over 60 adware files -_-'
so heres my point, get KaZaA Lite over normal KaZaA, as KaZaA lite is smaller in filesize and isn't too much of a hassle.
if your still on normal kazaa's side, then i pity your computer
popup blockers may help a tniy bit, but not a whole lot...
