Help ?


Recommended Posts

Yes it is rather annoying that Kazaa would go as far as to install crap like that. But as Gob said all you need is AdAware, and it detects/uninstalls it. But Kazaa made it so you would have to uninstall kazaa to get rid of it. There may be a loophole but I haven't found it yet. But for them causing lag is beyond me, don't know how or why they would do that.

Yeah, I had a similar problem with a u2u program called bearshare.  It installed a program called "SaveNow!" that poppoed up ad windows every so often.  It was annoying as hell.  Try pressing ctrl+alt+delete and look for anything that doesn't belong there.  If you see anything, go to Start/Settings/Control Pannel/Add-remove programs and see if you can uninstall it from there.

If not, kill kazaa and get some other u2u share program like morpheus or limewire.

I couldn't even start configurations for windows...

NO!! Evil formatter.

Ad-Aware won't remove important files. Check them all, unless you know its a program you wan't any way. Delete them all. Kill them all. I don't know where I get them, but I always have about 100 copys of Brilliant Digital. I only ever come here and Hotmail and Wulfram though. So no idea.

So yes. Remove all those. Get Zone Alarm, that stops others. I improved my ping by 100 when going through Zone Alarm.

Evil Formater.

Evil.

But, you will still probably re-download them again, if you don't know what they are.

Ad-aware and Zone Alarm is best.

Just turn of KaZaA in the sys tray, that gets rid of it. It won't take bandwidth.

Definitions:

Format: Entirely clear your Hard-Drive

then you have to re-install everything. Do this only when your computer starts acting really funny. ;D

Spy-Ware: Programs that access your band-width to send information to it's superiors in washington.

Ad-Aware: Finds and destroys Spy-Ware.

Zone Alarm: For the few peices of Spy-Ware that are needed to run, like bde in KaZaA, zone-alarm stops them from working.

Zone Alarm stops anything you don't want to access the internet, from accessing it. Removed 100 from my ping it did.

Never have KaZaA running in the back-ground. Only use it when you are doing nothing else.

When you want to do something, go down to your Task-Bar, in the bottom right corner, there is a box called your system tray. Right click on the KaZaA icon, and click close.

Ever since I got XP, I had to upgrade my HD, to a 40 GB, yay ;D ;D. I used to only have an 8. Pray for my sole.

I used Partition Magic, and had to start re-installing Programs over to E:. So I made the rule, that i'd keep every installation package I ever get. So when I format, I can just re-install them all. But, first I need a CD-RW, so I can actually get these setups of the computer.

Why does most people think formatting is evil ? IMHO, you NEED to format every now and then (I always format my pc once every 6 months). Just try this out.. if you have not formatted your C drive for more then a year, try formatting it. I can assure you, you will see a performance increase, due to the fact that all crap has gone. Also, you will notice that most programs you won't even re-install, cause you've realized that your (almost) not use them anyways..

Hence why I only have Windows on my C drive and all other programs on another (to be more specific, my games have their own harddrive)..

My advice, format every now and then, it'll keep your comp in tiptop shape..

Yes, if you have partitioning, it's fine. I have got new partitions.

But I have this great program that does the same effect as formating.

It gets ride of all dead end registry codes, looks for duplicates, and everything like that. It's great. I used it once and my computer tripled in speed.
