Thread: What To Do Regarding The Many Virus Infected Files

    I am a musician in Las Vegas and love Kazaa-lite for its many software programs I am able to try before I buy. My problem is since comming to Kazaalite from the standard version I am blown away with all the files I attempt to download that are infected with all kinds of different virus'.
    What is the right thing to do? How do I let someone know (the peron who's file I tried to download) know that they are infected? They may be the ones creating the virus and I imagine most are as they accept no msgs and cant be contacted. It is a sad thing these assholes who ruin it for the rest of us.
    Let me know what I should do, and/or if there is anything that can be done.
    Regards,
    Mark in Vegas

    Download 'Verifieds'.

    These files are legit and have no viruses or spyware contained within them.

    Get use to it, more than half of the FastTrack network is filled with malicious programs.

    i wouldnt trust any file on here even if its "verified" or any filesharing network for that matter get a virus scanner and keep it updated. the main files that have viruses on it are the software files (progs, games...ect)

    just because a file is verified it does not mean it can be contaminated, it does mean its less likely but the sure way is to have a good up to date anti virus
