CIS Help: Kazaa and Spyware
Kazaa has been highlighted by Computer Associates International Inc. as one of the worst spyware threats out there, with the ability to cause serious system problems. To keep your computer safe, make sure you are regularly using and updating spyware removal tools such as Ad Aware and Spybot (available from the CIS Security CD or from www.download.com). Also, make sure to remove threatening programs such as Kazaa.
