Really? I knew kazaa had viruses but I had no idea about that program you were talking about. I dont know tho I just figured if the virus made the news it was a pretty big deal, either that or they got nothing better to talk about.

its no lie....kazaa uses your comp as a server for commercial sites that pay for the software you download...its in the end-user agreement....but since no one reads that shit...no one really knows about it....thats why you get ad-aware...my computer had about 0.1 gigs worth of phony software, bandwith leeches, and a few time-bomb viruses...

yeah... as soon as I'm done with school I'm formating my computer. Its nice to format it once in a while, gets rid of all the unwanted stuff.

oh, the cool thing about my Zone Alarm Pro firewall is that it blocks programs to act as a server Very Happy So basically kazaa cant act as a server unless I tell it to do so 8)

actually, macafee just prompted me that there is a virus going round through p2p & hotmail, but that any good virus protector should find it... good thing i got NAV & NPF Smile. ugh... DAMN U BlueMountain.com( i just got about 4 e-mails from them)... FYI, if u get a message from BlueMountain.com it contains a virus :-S (or at least NAV tells me so). u know who i want to meet? Pam.... (if u have msn, u'll understand)
