ok i dont think you should really be asking about this here. your most likely using it for illegal purposes. anyway i stopped using kazaa about 4 years ago as it has more viruses than viruses. limewire is better but i still dont encourage you to use it.

Hmm, this happened to me too you know. It's weird; cause it happened to my friend too. Anyway I've stopped using Kazaa. There are some cases where people use it legally, dude1234. Others use it illegally. Most illegally

But he's only asking about connecting, not downloading.

There is the occasional person [1/1000000000000000000] that uses it for sharing legal documents and files between each other.

Kazza isnt illegal nor are any other P2P prgrams. Its the content which is shared on them.

And dont use kazza, its a breeding ground for viruses. Use limewire

The gnutella limewire network is also full of viruses. Unfortunately all the P2P networks are.

but limewire has a lot less viruses and bundled software than kazaa. in fact, i never have problems with it. i know p2p arnt illegal but i also know the reality of how people use them, which is mainly for illegal stuff.
