#2 and #3 are for those who have Kazaa and wish to switch to Kazaa Lite. Morpheus users can do this as well, but they will need to uninstall "Wurld Media" for #2.

1) Get Kazaa Lite--there should be no debate! It is exactly like Kazaa, with all adware and spyware removed, and it accesses the same P2P network as Kazaa.

2) Go to Control Panel and hit "Add/Remove Programs." Remove all the ad-bot software here, if possible. Here are names of possible spyware apps with Kazaa:

"Mandatory third-party applications bundled with Kazaa include Cydoor. Optional third-party applications include SaveNow, DelFin, MediaLoads, b3d Projector, and New.net."

3) I'm guaranteeing you won't be able to uninstall it all, so you will need a program called Adaware that will scan your computer and remove all ad files and registry entries.

Rono, you can choose how many files you want to share and how many uploads you want to allow simultaneously. You can also immediately remove files you downloaded from your Shared Folder but some people might block you when you try to download if you don't share anything.

get Kazaa Lite (www.kazaalite.nl) and Ad-aware (www.download.com??).

I use Kazaa, but I usually can't find what I'm looking for.

I miss Audiogalaxy.

Napster was the best

I'll never download another music sharing thing. Kazaa f*%$@d up my harddrive so bad. and I don't trust them or kazaa lite or anything, and I don't want to have to remove crap from my harddrive or download more stuff to remove it all.

I use WinMx but it's not great. Have the time nothing is available to download. I was thinking of going back to Kazaa, but not after what bear said. That sucks.

Audiogalaxy was the best music stealing program I ever came across, too bad they got screwed. Unlike Napster, AG actually tried to promote lesser known artists, but it didn't matter in the end. I mostly use Soulseek for d/ling music; check it out at www.slsk.org.

I either FTP stuff using SmartFTP, find a direct link to the song I want, or search our network here. I have a file that lists over 97000 mp3s here at school.

I HATE Kazaa!
