    First thing is first, run a virus scan from that website. It is an online, ActiveX based virus scanner that will detect Trojans, viri, and destructive spyware, with the ability to remove or repair each infection. Why am I recommending it? Because it sounds like you do not already have an AV solution installed, and now would be a bad time to install any more software, lest it face possible infect.

    So, first run a virus scan and let us know if it finds anything.

    You got it by installing KaZaa.


    I don't know how to get rid of it other than by uninstalling KaZaa.
    Real security doesn't come with an installer.

    D0pp139an93r, I'm not saying you are wrong, but do you have documentation on that? Color me curious

    Also, if that ends up being the case, then I recommend uninstalling Kazza completely and switching to Kazaa Lite ++, the uninfected, untrojaned, unbannered, uncontrolled version of Kazaa sent from Heaven.

    Hi

    like D0pp139an93r said the only way to remove it is to uninstall kazaa.
    I just worked on a box last night that had that. Get kazaa ressurection or emule if your going to use p2p.

    [edit]

    Here are some p2p forums if you have p2p questions or just wanna browse threw.

    Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
    The international ban against torturing prisoners of war does not necessarily apply to suspects detained in America\'s war on terror, Attorney General John Ashcroft told a Senate oversight committee

    p2p networking is a separate application that is packaged with KaZaa Media Desktop. It provides certain p2p functions for KaZaa, KaZaa lite does not require this.



    Like Pooh Sun Tzu said, KaZaa Lite K++ is the way to go.


    BTW 2.6 was the last version of Lite. Don't go any higher or it's virused. (I think 2.6)


    EDIT: Pooh, the only documentation I have is personal experience.
