    Hi,

    I'm tired of Kaza, Kazalite and all that merry bunch. I have the new version of Kazalite (2.0.2) and it makes my HD work non stop.

    Can anybody recommend a decent filesharing prog?

    Daniel.

    WinMX is great-but know they will all have to work your hard drive pretty hard.

    I doubt if you are going to find a P2P filesharing program as good as Kazaalite. As far as it working your hard drive do you leave it running even when you are not downloading anything? If you are that is really slowing your system down as people are uploading from you while it is running. You should go to Tools/options/traffic and limit the number of simultaneous uploads. I have mine set to 3 and even with that I can see a significant decrease in the performance of my PC and I have a pretty fast system.

    for regular Kazaa users running XP pro, right click the taskbar to bring up task manager, click on 'processes', then right click Kazaa.exe and change it's priority to 'below normal' to regain your processor and memory power from kazaa.

    Hi,

    I think 'Media Desktop' is how Kaza (any Russian speakers in here?) and maybe also Kaza Lite define their software.

    And, though this discussion is turning to be quite informative, I think I posted the question at the top merely out of hardware-histeria. My HD was working non-stop, but I was downloading, like, 20 files at the time, at a total speed of about 60KB...

    Whatever happened to caching...
    Oh, I'll stop.
    Daniel.
