Kazaa contains spyware, Kazaa LITE NOT. But I'm using Shareaza right now and it works fine. Better than Kazaa (Lite). A year ago I had also Kazaa on my PC (blame on me). Lucky me, I had a virusscanner, but he blocks constantly virusses etc who're trying to come inside by Kazaa (lite). I will never use it again.

And what is this shareaza and where can I get info about it??

If I were you, I should remove Kazaa Lite and install Shareaza or so.
Shareaza is something like Kazaa Lite, but it looks better and contains almost no virusses.

I use a mix of Kazaa Lite and Ares. It works wonders for me.

Kazaa Lite is illegal. It is "warez". It is a cracked version of the pay copy of Kazaa. If you install Kazaa Lite and read the TOS it clearly says
This installation package was created to save you the work of cleaning the original Kazaa software from all third party software yourself. By installing the software included in this package you agree to take ALL responsibilities that you would have if you personally modified the original Kazaa Media Desktop software instead of using this installer.
All terms referencing to 'Kazaa Media Desktop' or 'Kazaa' in this document also apply to 'Kazaa Lite K++'.

You don't really 'pay' for Kazaa, unless you refer to allowing all the crap it will install on your machine as payment. But that is how Sharman Networks does get paid...by the companies they contract with to install the adaware, spyware, etc...
Thats not the reason it is not supported.
Kazaa Lite is illegal. It is "warez". It is a cracked version of the pay copy....

A lot of people still think it is safe to download illegal softwares, but thinking that is really very naive. Secondly, the last person I would trust is a cracker and still people trust they have removed all log activities in the software. Wrong, they debug the source and remove the key or build a keygenerator. Many companies today uses an IP tracker to log illegal activities with their software(s). The Internet is far from a haven for warez anymore.
I read a heartfelt statement by a guy who invested everything he had and lost everything he had even though he sold 1 very cheap software. People used a warez version of his software, so they could save like $10. That is really very sickening. Destroying another person so one can save $10. Shame on these sick selfish people.
Then there's probably tons of spyware in Kazaa Klite++, but reading the above should be more than enough to consider not to use P2P. So basically you won't have a problem with spyware.
If you can't afford it, dont use it.

My opinion is that everybody have the right to use the FT network without being bombarded with malware.

Q.Does Ares have spyware?
Ares is 100% free but comes bundled with optional NavHelper software by NavExcel
NavHelper is a browser object which allows to enter search keywords directly in the address bar of Internet Explorer. If you don't want to install it, just opt-out while you install Ares. If you have installed the browser object but you don't want it anymore, just go to control panel->add/remove programs, remove NavHelper and restart your computer.
If anybody does choose Ares..make sure you choose to not install the NavHelper.
