    Kazaa lite hidden files folder...you might want to check it out

    did you know that kazaa lite is sharing a folder in your windows directory called wTemp32? inside is has many programs that are hidden which in my case total to 62MB. It has cracks, Spybot S&D, winXP stuff and all kinds of other ****. This folder is shared by default on kazaa.

    I have used Kazaa Lite for a long time, but never heard of such thing before. I search my drive for wTemp32 folder, but return no result. I think your system may be infected with a virus and those hidden programs and files are viruses. Try this website: http://housecall.antivirus.com for a online virus scan. Stop using kazaa lite now to prevent the virus from spreading.

    like Falcon said.yr system might be infected with a virus

    This worm propagates via the Kazaa and the iMesh peer-to-peer file sharing networks. This worm cannot propagate on systems that do not have these file sharing applications installed.


    Upon execution, this worm drops a copy of itself in the Windows system folder as the file MS_32.EXE. It then creates a folder named "wtemp32" in the Windows folder and drops copies of itself in the newly created folder using different file names.

    Where did you get your copy of Kazaa Lite, is it possible you got a "trojaned" version that has been re-engineered to spread Warz & cracks? You might want to delete and re-install from the official Kazaa Lite web site which I believe is www.kazaalite.tk

    As much as I understand you're concerns over security in using file sharing networks such as kazaa, I do not believe that not sharing is a good solution. Not sharing you're files defeats the purpose of a file sharing network. Not sharing files out of fear of virus infection or other security issues is exactly what the RIAA wants. They hope that you will be so afraid of getting a virus that you won't exercise you're rights and hense make their hopeless court battles unnecessary. Also, using a file sharing network such as kazaa to download files and not reciprocating by contributing files on your own computer to the network is selfish and entirely opposed to the spirit in which file sharing networks were created and operate.
    If you are really worried about it, I would recomend just not downloading excecutables or files that contain scripting elements. This alleviates the vast majority of problems.
