Default p2p removal

I'm on win98 and I wanted to remove P2P network off of my computer. I already went to add/remove programs and removed it but it is still running in the background and it is still on my control panel. It came through w/ Kazaa and after i uninstalled kazaa it's still there.

thanks,
justin

well...you can make it "not work" by running spybot S&D or Ad-aware. They will detect a few files that kazaa needs to run properly as adware, and if you remove them it shouldn't work right. I'm not sure how you can really delete it exactly - except by actually going tho C:\Program Files and deleting the kazaa directory...

Note: this may only work in windows 2000 OS's

easiest way to get rid of specific anoying programs is hit ctrl alt delete and click processes, alternatively go control panel - admin tools - services

find which process is causing you the problem, then either

A: search for the process name on your computer, end it in task manager then delete it.

B: right click the process in "services" then make it manual start, i would not reccomend disabled.

hope this helps.

Its called P2P Network on Kazaa - go to that on the Start Menu and go to the Uninstaller.

yeh, my option is if there is no uninstaller or you cant remove it from add/remove programs.
