:frowning: basically, kazaa has the same options as grokster when you install it. if you download the full verion of the new update instead of downloading the update file, you will recieve these options -FuR1OuS of FuR1OuS Inc.

I had this problem too. I just installed Grokster, but the same problem occured. Damn Spyware!

Solution: Go to www.musiccity.com, install Morpheus, et voila! Morpheus has the same interface as Kazaa, the same database, but there’s no spyware installed :slight_smile:

Nah! WinMX gives LOADS more music and no spyware probs.

ljpp> WinMX just for music? I do like a good porno now and then :4

Actually, Morpheus has the exact same problem as Grokster and KaZaa. It won’t run without the spyware files. Strange though, I uninstalled Ad-Aware and reinstalled Morpheus and I still couldn’t run the program. Any solutions?


#10

What spyware? I use both Morpheus and Grokster 1.3 and they have no spyware (they do have ads though).


#11

I had install KaZaa too. I knew that KaZaa was Spyware so a didn’t install HotText,Web Hancer…I openned Ad-Watch and it was running Cydoor.I remove it with Ad-Aware.The problem was that “Winsock” got broken.Can someone help me?:frowning:
