    I am totally obsessed with downloading music, but awhile ago I attemped to download an upgrade to the basic Kazaa system. Once I had fully downloaded the upgrade I went to click on Kazaa and a message popped up saying," You have uninstalled a part of Kazaa needed to run and to close and reinstall." (I believe it was called error 1030, I'm not positive though) Anyway, I uninstalled Kazaa and reinstalled several times and the same message keeps appearing.I checked to make sure I had all the needed componets to run Kazaa aswell. I can't figure out what to do. I tried other music sources but I can't find one I like as much as Kazaa. If you know what I should do please HELP!!

    What I would do is:

    1. Use a spyware scanner to delete all the spyware that comes with the Kazaa download
    2. uninstall Kazaa using the JV16 power tool
    3. Do a file search for Kazaa and delete all of the files that are found.
    4. Backup the registry
    5. Use Jv16 power tool to clean the registry.
    6. If you want to and are brave enough, do a manual search for useless Kazaa keys in the registry (be sure to have a backup if you do this)
    Reinstall the latest Kazzaa with all of its Spyware. (Perhaps you might want to try Kazaa Lite)

    You can do as Bvr01fvr suggests or go the simple route and use KazaaBegone. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=3446. Unzip it and run the KazaaBegone.exe.

    You don't want Kazaa with all that Spyware anyway. Might I suggest Kazaalite. It is the same as Kazaa but better No Spyware. If you want Kazaalite here is a direct download link where you can get it. The download should begin as soon as you click on the link. Be sure you use KazaaBegone first.
