Joe: Download Limewire instead.
it'll cost more to fix your computer than you'll save on songs
dont bother unless you have broadband and update your anti virus everyweekend
i even know a few hackers who dont even bother using kazaa for sending them.
summary: DONT BOTHER
A once mighty peer to peer file sharing program, in its peak in 2000-2002 kazaa was unmatched for free music, movies, games. Today is home to viruses, trojans, fake files, traps, and porn.
There are many losers on kazaa who Intentionally host fake/re-named files.
With kazaa today, you have to search and download carefully. Sometimes when you are trying to download A Movie, you
might be disgusted to find out its actually gay porn. Or that mp3 your downloading, is actually a fake 10 second clip that is coded to track you and play an audio clip to damage your ears and speakers.
2. Yes, but it was actually gay porn from khazakistan
1. good old kazaa!
Kazaa is in legal battles, and to financially support these has resorted to flooding your pc with ads and all sorts of junk. Here's something to ponder: Kazaa claims not to install spyware on your system, but the ads and programs that flood your pc are based on your browsing habits. If you browse cars, you'll get car ads. If you browse the net for movies, you'll get movie ads. Kazaa doesn't magically know your browsing habits- there is a program hidden in the file structure that spies on you while you are online..... If this isn't "spyware" then what the hell is their definition? They can add false advertising to their list of lawsuits.
It took me 2 hours to get rid of this crap completely. Whatever you do, do not use Kazaa. Just stay far, far away. It doesn't matter what kind of antivirus or firewall you have, trust me. If you can use Kazaa, then it is unblocked and unaffected by your firewall, and will pretty much do as it pleases. Kazaa is a joke of a program, and I will throw a party when it dies in the courts.
If you want a great file sharing program that is much faster and safer than Kazaa, get Limewire; I've NEVER had a single problem with it. There are no ads and no spyware. It just works, and does all that Kazaa claims, minus the lies and mountains of bullshit.
