I have downloaded Kazaa to my computer, I have not used it. I ran a scan
using Ad-Ware, and it showed 107 critical objects and said it had 6 attempts to hijack my modem (I think it said modem). Anyhow, it is scaring me for my computer. Does anybody know anything about it, and do you think I should remove it from my computer?

1. Un-install Kazaa Now!
It is pure trash. Sorry to be so blunt, but thats the best way to put it.

4. I Haven't Used Any P2P Stuff In A While,...
but I was fond of WINMX. I don't know if they even make it anymore.

2. Much better P2P music sharing apps than Kazaa:
Soulseek and Ares.

5. Kazaa is a big bad.
My son insisted on installing it, and we had no end of trouble with
adware and spyware until the computer guru finally convinced him
that his parents were right, and he uninstalled it.
