    I think K-lite wanting Norton to scan the downloads is great, but it is requesting a scan way too much and it is slowing down my system drastically. I have a full backup of my system and am willing to take the chance with a virus than put up with the slow down caused by the constant requesting. How do I turn off this feature? ( or change the time between request?)

    Are you sure you set up your AV correctly. Sounds like you need to tell it that KLite can act as a server.

    I have norton antivirus 2004, and winxp pro as my o/s. Norton AV (about every 20 seconds) pops up a window right above my clock and says that k-lite (it actually says the file name, and it is k-lite) has requested a virus scan. It stops all downloading until it is finished virus scanning (about 5 seconds), then it starts downloading again. Like I said, I was downloading about 4 files that were .zip files, and they were about 150mb each.
    And the above just kept repeating until the file was downloaded. And it slowed down everything, because when norton did it virus scan, ALL programs ran very slow, or stopped all together.
    This is the first time that K-lite has ever done this, I just figured it was because of the new version. First time I have used the newest version.

    If more info is needed, let me know.

    I have the same thing u have and that never happened with any version of kazaa it could because of downloading a .zip file but I still doubt that's why where did u get your NAV from.

    I have snag-it, and I have a nice image of kazaa lite requesting a virus scan. It is doing it on my computer, don't know why if it ain't like that on others. I have noticed this, if you download more, it is just constantly virus scanning each file. By the time it gets through with one, it is time to scan another.

    How do you upload an image on this forum? I can't figure it out. Thanks for you help.
