Hi,

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.

http://www.shareaza.com

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.

Kazaa Lite is considered an illegal hack of Kazaa.

Kazaa Lite is better than Shareaza IMO. You have to wait longer on Shareaza because the people are really slow sometimes. Plus, there are several times where I'd complete my torrent transfers there, and when I go to the directory, there'd be 0% there.

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

Thats not the reason it is not supported.

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


1: KAZAA LITE K++ TERMS OF USE

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++'.

Please note that installing this software is ILLEGAL and is in violation of the Kazaa Media Desktop Terms of Use. If you do, however, install the software contained in this package, you agree to take ALL responsibility for your actions.

Using KazaaLite++ is illegal but downloading music for free is illegal also..so your taking a risk either way. The fasttrack p2p network is much more faster, and has alot of users so you wont have a problem finding anything (even rare files). Using Shareaza you will notice most of your files will come from edonkey network (slow) since Shareaza own network (gnetulla 2) have very few users. Instead of K-Lite+++ I would suggest you using KLTools+++ (much better,faster, and of course spyware free). If your desire to use P2P programs just for music then I would suggest Winmx. Their own network is very good and almost every music on there are "real, valid music files". Its your decision....

I myself use Winmx mostly but KL for rare files. :cool:

To uninstall Kazaa Lite simply go to Add/Remove in your control panel and uninstall from there. Also would check in your Program Files to locate and delete the "Kazaa Lite" folder. Kazaa Lite is easy to uninstall...Kazaa on the other hard is a paint to uninstall since it leaves behind soo many ad/spyware on your computer.

Hope this helps!

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... :ph34r:

Well, there is a pay version of Kazaa, supposedly without spyware, but I would'nt trust anything from Sharkman network anyways
Failure is not an option, it comes bundled with the software.

First I would consider the main purpose for using P2P as we all know that warez is illegal and that all P2P softwares are easily logged. ISP's are forced to hand over log files if authorities request these, so using P2P is always at own HIGH risk as there are far from any guarantees that your log files will not turn up at the authorities.

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.

KLR, K-Lite+++, KLT+++ all are illegal. KLR development have ended so I wouldnt recommend using it. For the best "malware free version of Kazaa" go with KLT+++.

:thumbsup:

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.
