    HELP ME!!! I use Kazaa for my file sharing needs, but I think I got hacked or something. I get about 130 "Illegal" files that are probably all viruses, I deleted them and in an hour or two they are back. I tried a system restore but no luck, and I really dont know how to go about reformating my computer. Anyone got any ideas??

    And Mods, I'm sorry for putting this in the wrong forum the first time.
    I figured this would be the best place.

    Try using the forum search on 'kazza'. It has been discussed recently. :D

    My guess would be that you have the Benjamin worm.

    1) search the forums for kazaa (search button is top right) there you find in depth discussion of Benjamin

    2) there are alot of tools out there that will detect and/or remove it. Do a google search for Benjamin worm

    Check out the virus library at mcafee's site here http://vil.mcafee.com/default.asp? and search for the virus you have, assuming you've been told the name of it by whatever proggy you have, you'll also find removal instructions on it.
