Kazaa adware & spyware removal
Posted by Red Squirrel on August 17th 2004



Kazaa is the most popular filesharing application out currrently. Just like
companies like Napster their days are numbered. Being number one in an industry like
this means you'd better have some of the best lawyers that money can buy! This means
you'd better have gobs of cash floating around which means selling your data and
displaying ads. According to them they have no spyware. "No application included
with your KMD installation, or KMD itself, collects personally identifiable
information about users without their consent." and also "Kazaa Media Desktop
contains banner advertising and the option to install other third party applications
in order to remain free to the user." To sum it up, it may have some spyware type
applications that are "optional" PLUS the ads themselves by alot of peoples
definition is in fact spyware.
