I voted for both. I hate the spyware and ads, but i like the ability to download almost every song in existence for "free"

Never had a problem with it deleting stuff before though :confused:



i know i have thought of moved files... However after searching my hdd for an hour i have found NO TRACE of files!! They arent hidden they arent there. Anyways... thanks for the help... (And yes i use KaZaa Lite) Oh well... t3 connection... no big problems i will have it all back in an hour or 2... take it easy people and thanks for your help.

dont worry

most files can still be recovered if they are not overwritten

you need to boot from a second harddrive and use your main harddrive as the secondary master
you should borrow a friends large drive because you want to rescue everything you can

you must get this program


this program is a must have

dont use your harddrive or you will write over more files

install this program on the new harddrive and search your lost harddrive for erased files
after 20 mins
you will get a message with thousands of files

i would just select all and copy to the new drive
at this point nothing was saved and the files displayed are the ones that will be able to copy to your new drive
this will save all files to the new drive for safe keeping

i had a super corrupt harddrive and this program deciphered and saved hundreds of files including a complete office 2000 backup

please post your findings here

i hope it helps


after youve saved your mp3's etc...
you can safely copy the files back to your original harddrive without overwriting anything

it sounds like kazaa haters have made good use of the xp bug mentioned in the other posts and deleted a very common folder for kazaa users
update to sp1 or get the fix from the link above
its only 30k

check for viruses
free online scanner

i use it whenever xp slows or acts strange
