From what I've heard, Kazaa is a breeding ground for viruses and Spyware. That type of thing can easily embed it self (or get embedded) by a person and released when you download it. You definately want to download AdAware SE Personal to check if anything got on your PC.

Also, if you don't have antivirus software, get it here:

from what I hear limewire also has some spyware. the only version of kazaa which does not usually have spyware is kazaa lite, which is a hacked version of it in which it was removed. if you want to try it you should be able to find it on google.
