How to remove adware without shutting down kazaa?
    #2020181 - 10/18/03 10:56 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Does anyone know what adware Kazaa installs on your computer?

I have Ad Aware, and want to get rid of some spyware, but Kazaa evidently has its adware imbedded so that if you get rid of it, your Kazaa won't work. Getting rid of Kazaa is not an option for me because even though I hate the adware, I haven't found anything that comes close to the number of users and files to trade with.

Use Kazza Lite instead.

Check for the date when Kazaa was installed. Then do a search for folders and files created on that date. Check for a folder named I386. There are also other folders but i forget the names of them at the moment. Also check for anything from Gator Corporation.

Let me know what you find. I'll look more into this.

Even Kazaa lite has spyware

DF2K- The reason i'm thinking it was created by Kazaa spyware is because i checked the date created of that folder to the date of Kazaa installation. It matched.

I have a winXP book i'll have to look it up.

Yes Kazaa lite does have spyware, and like someone else here said if you run ad-aware to remove the spyware, kazaa lite will no longer run.

I think squid might have been confused. There is a file that ad-aware will recognize. Its not a spyware file, but a dummy file to trick kazaa into thinking its real and then it'll run. There is no spyware in kazaa lite.

See the post above this one. There is no spyware in Kazaa lite.

I use it and have run both Adaware and Spybot on my system.

Ok, I looked for Kazaa Lite on Cnet and no results came up, so I downloaded and installed Diet Kazaa instead. Very pleased with it so far. No more Kazaa popups, plus as an additional favor it uninstalled P2P! which was running in the background eating up my already low system resources. Every time I start my computer I curse that P2P thing that starts without your permission whether you're running Kazaa at the time or not! I run a game server and everyone was complaining of lag so I ran it down to the process for P2P and I was not a happy camper when I found that. I mean Kazaa is instrusive enough without that damn thing.

I can't compare Diet Kazaa with Kazaa Lite, but Diet Kazaa got a 94% approval rating from Cnet users which is almost unheard of.

hey!
kazaa lite is best
www.kazaalite.tk
Then run spybot or adaware - both free programs that remove adware.
There was a file you shouldnt delete though, it was an dll file placed in the kazaa directory. I think without it Kazaa wont work.
