    First, it's always better to removed software by the Add/Remove programs tab, it generally removes (almost) all registry entries.

    You can reinstall Kazaa, then uninstall it. But, if you prefer not doing this, the uninstal key is in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and remove the Kazaa key.

    Secondly, (rather you choose clean uninstall or not), you should delete every Kazaa key in your registry. There will probably be one in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE and/or in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software

    Also get Ad-Aware to get rid of spywares. You can find it on download.com
