    See here :

    http://www.annoyances.org - Use site search facility.

    It seems to be Spyware in Kazaa.

    Go here :


    D/L Spybot Search & Destroy.

    You can then get rid of the offending items.

    Afterwards D/L Kazaalite that comes without Spyware.

    I have posted about this same thing in this forum just a few mins. ago.

    Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel and Add / Remove programs, look for downloadware and uninstall it.
    You might also want to download and install spybot.
    Gets rid of junk on your system.
    Then Please Download and install SpyBot,


    click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

    Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
    These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

    you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

    Remove everything pre-ticked in Red

    Then please post another startup list
