    Have just downloaded this spyware prog on a recommendation from a friend, seems to be working okay. Anyone else running this programme, and is it as good as I've been told?

    Thats cause the regular kazaa has the cydoor spyware. go find kazaa lite.

    Is 'Kazza' & 'lite' compatible (ie do they use the same "my shared folder" etc)?

    Yeah Spybot-Search and Destroy is a good app.

    Be careful running the full scans though to ensure you don't delete anything you might need.

    Kazaa lite & kazaa are essentially the same app, just lite is a "stripped down" version i.e. no spyware.
    You may find partial downloads under Kazaa won't be resumable under lite though.
