    That has got to suck, I doubt Kazaa in itself would do that, more probably the millions of viruses downloaded with it. Normally if I have a program thats annoying me and I can't uninstall the normal way, I delete all the folders related to it with "o&o safe erase" and then clean the registry with "registry mechanic" and make sure there is no process trying to run at startup through msconfig.

    I kind of figured it was probably the viruses and not the fact that he tried to remove kazaa. I would still stay away from it. As long as i can remember kazaa has been a nest for viruses and spyware. Most of my friends were like if you ever get the net dont get kazaa and i haven't laid a finger on kazaa yet.

    Why do so many people blame viruses on the p2p programs they download them with?

    Ctrl + alt + delete then use task manager to close all unnecerrity prosess then try uninstalling it if this not working then boot your computer to safe mode (press f8 to get that boot options), then uninstall it. Atleats this is my way to remove programs that dont want to be removed...

    Do they still have the site running with original kazaa, i know the first kazaa client had build-in spyware and they didn't even hide it lol. I had troubles with it long time ago but i did close the spyware programs and than uninstall kazaa. Later i deleted all. U can try to use kazaabegone, if i remember well its made for what u want, u can find it everywhere, download & run it and u have no problem no more.
