    So what gives? I'm quite sure this is spyware...why cant i at least uninstall/delete the symbol and the name that says "delfin media viewer".

    If theres nothing to uninstall then why is it still there?

    Thanks for any help

    DelFin is indeed spyware that is supplied with that totally unethical, immmoral, illegal, you're-a-scum-if-you-use-it, does-nothing-but-steals-money-from-artists [/SARCASM] KaZaa, which people need to learn to stop installing because of the large amount of spyware that it installs onto their system.

    Download and install AdAware - http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/.

    Make sure that after you install it that you click on the "Check for Updates" link in the program to get the newest reference file. Run it and let it go through your system to get rid of crap like DelFin.

    If you insist on using KaZaa, you should consider using KaZaa Lite.

    Even if the spyware/program is removed from the system, sometimes an uninstall entry will still be left over. To get rid of the entry, you need to do some registry editing. Don't ask me how though.

    Another great app for this is SpyBot, it's great for this kinda stuff.. and it's freeware.. just do a search on google for "spybot" to find it..
