Remove Ads From Kazaa Posted on Thursday, March 07 @ 16:30:00 GMT by waddy Anonymous writes "Tired of all the ads at the bottom of Kazaa, not to mention the ads Kazaa causes to pop up? Here is a tweak to end all Kazaa related ads. 1. With KaZaA closed navigate to C: Windows > System32 > AdCache 2. Delete all files within 'AdCache', leave the 'Temp' folder but make sure it is empty 3. Right click on the folder 'AdCache' & select properties 4. Navigate to the Security tab 5. In the group or user name box, select administrator, or the appropriate user (anyone who runs kazaa) 6. In the permissions box deny write access 7. Repeat for all necessary users and click 'OK' *If you don't see the Advanced tabs under Security, first DISABLE simple file sharing in order to display the necessary security tabs"

This only works for XP Pro not home edition, your drive also needs to be NTFS and you need to remove the simple file sharing check mark from the Tools-Folder Options-View menu.
