    Like many people I enjoy the benefits of Kazaa and similar programs (trying to keep this discussion within HTF rules), but am not so fond of the spyware and other nasty stuff they put on your computer. Kazaa Lite claims to have none of this, and several people I know have backed this up Anyone here that can vouch for it?

    I don't know about the latest version, but the one I still use doesn't have any of that stuff in it.

    I switched to k-lite and haven't seen an ad banner or pop-up since. It also seems to have a few extra search features compared to Kazaa standard.

    I would recommend it over Kazaa standard any day.

    I use Kazaa Lite and so far so good. I haven't had a pop up or ad banner with it. My anti-spyware program hasn't found any spyware on my computer so I guess it's okay.

    OK, I downloaded it and installed and ran it for a while, then I had to shut down. When I restarted, I went into the program file folder for K-Lite (I don't have it on the desktop or anything, cause it kinda has to stay incognito), looking to start the program back up, but couldn't find it. Anybody have any idea what that's all about?

    I've been running it for quite some time with no issues though most spyware detectors say its spyware since its essentially the same code.
