Cryptmagic that is one of the pitfalls of running an unofficial release of anything, the unknowns. Now granted one may still experience the same problems with the official release as well.

First question what version of Kazaa are you running? I hope its the lite version, dunno if it the latest but this is what I'm running "KazaaLite.v2.4.3e".

The reason why I ask is because this is about as safe as safe can be using a p2p and keeping the RIAA off your back and also being trojan, ad-aware, spybot free.

Anyhow I digress, one of the more important features of the sp2 release is its new enhanced "Firewall" check to see if its turned on, if so either turn it off or add the port# you'll be using with Kazaa. It's just a guess on part but worth a looksie.

Good luck!

Kazaa does the same thing to me when I use spybot to immunize against spyware. Maybe it's not SP2, or maybe SP2 does some spyware stomping.

Hmm, maybe SP2 stomps P2P all together... that would rock! YEE YEE!

I had no troubles installing sp2 rc1.

What is your purpose of using kazaa?

If you're using plain old vanilla kazaa, i bet you've had some of the adware/spyware removed that is necessary for it to run. Try Kazaalite.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
