Why not just use something like KaZaa Lite or Diet KaZaa and get rid of
the adware?  


KaZaa Lite can be found here:
http://free.hostdepartment.com/kazaalitetk/

Use Ad-Aware from http://www.lavasoftusa.com and Spybot Search and
Destroy from http://beam.to/spybotsd to get rid of the pesky
spyware/ad-ware.  CEXX has some great info on these hostile applications
which are bundled with popular programs: http://www.cexx.org/adware.htm

Subject: KaZaA

I'm concerned about all the applications which utilize ie browser
controls.  
There are a lot of adware programs with little ads.  Some of these ads
have 
activex, java, flash, js.  Any one of these capabilities in the wrong
zone 
could be dangerous.

My attention was first drawn to this when I noticed KaZaA launching
popups 
sourced from the local hard disk.  Surely these ads are running in the
local 
zone.  To use software that does this I have to trust them to audit the
ads 
given to them?
