Thread: Excessive Disk Access

  1. #1
    Hi all,

    I just installed KaZaa Lite v2.4.3. I absolutely love it more than the regular KaZaa, however I am encountering a terrible problem. While KaZaa Lite is running, approximately every 2 1/2 minutes my hard drive starts accessing for about 7 minutes at a time and completely stalls the computer. My hard drive is defraged. I have Windows XP running on a Pentium 3 933MHz and 384 Mb of RAM. I never had this problem running the normal KaZaa program. Anyone have any suggestions? This only occurs while running KaZaa Lite.

    Thanks,

    Paul :helpsmile:

    I hope you uninstalled all that extra crap that comes bundled with that OTHER kazaa..that will cause you a lot of problems

    edit:in kazaa options theres a box that says "check for new shared files every 300 seconds"...change the 300 to read 3000 or 30000..that way its not using resources every 3 minutes or so to check for new files..its a poofter tool that I cant see any good reason for being there.but hopefully someone will come along and explain the goodness behind this shite thing

    first of all since you had kmd you need to do this :

    save your shared files to a temp folder uninstall any version of kazaa you have, go to program files and delete any kazaa folder you see, go to c:drive>my shared folder delete that, delet your db folder, run adaware then install klite

    if the problem continues after that let me know

    Hi Muscleman
    Just for the record......
    My version of this problem re-appeared after a complete trash and re-build.
    Seperate (entire) Hard drive used for sharing.
    Disks thouroughly checked & defragged etc
    Win2K Pro fully patched up to date.
    Adaware - latest ref file
    McAfee AV

    A couple of workmates have same problem (I.T. BTW)

    I will post as soon as I remember / figure it out the cure

    We have done your suggestions but not right yet.
    Perhaps I should keep quiet now and just read on....

    Yes, I completely uninstalled the old KaZaa and ran Ad-Aware with the latest definitions before I installed KaZaa Lite. I will try changing the "Check for new shared files" value. Do you think using a value of 0 would turn it off completely? Anyway, I will let you know if that seems to work.

    Thanks for all your posts! I'll check in here later.
