in reply to Not a perl question but help is needed.

Kazaa is notorious for including adware, spyware, slimeware and doing bad stuff to PCs. I would not trust any machine that has it installed.

    i would uninstall kazaa, and do a general sweep of the machine to clean out all of those little goodies left behind. there are utils that will do this for you, or if you wish, you can remove most of it fairly easily (check your startup / registry for programs that look suspicious).

    kazaa is a dirty little program, it's like leaving your front door open when you're not home. but then file sharing is evil and wrong anyway.
