Leftover Kazaa problems

Q: Leftover Kazaa problems


I am trying to help my friend again with her PC. I removed Adware and Kazaa a few months ago but someone installed Kazaa again so now I have to clean it up again. She promised her first born if it happens again.

I have installed the latest Windows security updates, cwshredder and Spybot but the browser is still not 100%. It is usable but there 4-5 ads when you launch. Here is her Hijack this file

Preferred Solution: Leftover Kazaa problems

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

First i had kazaa 2.0 on my computer then i decided to update to the newest i think 2.1 or 2.2 whatever it is......well then my problems started......everytime i went to search or just to exit the program kazaa would just freeze up and make everything run slowly.....so i decided to delete kazaa and get kazaa lite to see if the problem would go away then but still i have the same problem.....

A:kazaa / kazaa lite problems

What operating system are you using? Kazaa has a lot of spyware. Use Ad-aware, www.lavasoftusa.com, to remove the spyware.

I had a virus/rootkit that I thought I had cleaned up. I'm still having the following issues though:
1. Blue screen trying to boot into safe mode (can't read reason)
2. Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close message
3. Can't run full antivirus scan now without getting the above error, but it pops up at other times, like right now. When I get it, I have to restart my laptop - it won't do anything else.
4. Have the occasional extra pop up with an advertisement when I open up IE.
5. I couldn't post this on my laptop - I had to borrow someone else's for a few minutes to get this to go through. It just kept saying it couldn't diplay the page after I tried hitting submit.
6. My laptop is running much slower than normal.

Hope someone can help! I'm in the middle of a big project that needs files from my only computer, so this is the worst timing ever!

Hello, I have been trying to clean a friend's computer for a few hours now, the main problem was the Antimalware Doctor virus. I managed to finally get a clean scan from Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and Ad-Aware (there were about 150 items caught on the first Malwarebytes scan, I have that log file if it is needed), but I'm still getting redirected when I do a Google/Bing seach on Internet Explorer and Firefox (Chrome seems to work just fine). So far the only thing I know for sure it is redirecting are "malwarebytes" and "antispyware doctor" keyword-related searches, even though I am eventually able to get to the site I want after a few tries. Occasionally I will get redirected from other searches, but the previously mentioned keywords seem to almost always get redirected three or four times to random ad-sites before I can access the site I want. I also ran ComboFix to try and fix some issues, but the redirecting problem remains.Any help on this is greatly appreciated.The HiJackThis and ComboFix logs are below, but here they are as attachments:

Last night I got a nasty case of the Virusbursters disease. I'm running a fully updated Windows XP. I followed the "How To Remove Virusbursters" instructions for the automatic removal, and that seemed to help. Then suddenly the whole thing started over again. Then I tried following the manual removal instructions, but none of the dll files that I was supposed to remove were present. Then I read somewhere that Prevx would get rid of it, so I used the Prevx software and that did seem to get rid of Virusbursters. Although it did leave an entry for it on my quickstart bar and my Add/Remove Programs list. Unfortunately, a range of other stuff has been popping up. Random IE pop-up windows and even Firefox tabs coming up with ads for porn and music sites, and most of all for BS anti-virus programs. One repeat offender is something like Win Anti-VirusPro, or something like that. Also, Windows Explorer has been crashing, leaving me with a blank desktop. [Edit - I see others are having issues with this as well. Also, one bit I forgot - my Norton Anti-Virus periodically gives me the "A virus tried to do something, but I stopped it" pop-up message. The virus is always some random name.exe, and never the same one twice.] I have run the following: Spybot S&D (found and removed a bunch of stuff) Ad-Aware (found and removed some stuff) Panda Scan (found a ton of spyware, over a thousand files, according to the scan, but the free version wouldn't clean them) Windows ...

I?m working on (my father-in-law?s) pretty old Dell desktop.

He was hit with Internet Security 2011 malware. It gave me quite a hard time.

In desperation I went into the registry and deleted several entries associated with the malware as per a help site I found. I looked at a dozen different sites including bleepingcomputer.

Then I finally used a fresh copy of malwarebytes (downloaded on my own laptop and transferred over with a flash drive). I ran it but it didn?t seem to find anything. Perhaps because I had pulled out several components already.

I also ran combofix which seemed to help(?)

Anyway, I ran updated versions of malware bytes and spybot S & D. Spybot came up with a few items which I ?fixed? with spybot.

However, it looks like several of the programs, including Norton 360 are blocked. I was able to clear the block from malwarebytes using the cacls command.

I was not able to clear Spybot because I could not figure out how to type ?Spybot ? Search & Destroy? with the command prompt. I also am having trouble with Norton. ?and who knows what else may have been affected.

At this point I don?t know what?s left in there. I fear there may be ?pieces? of the original malware. Additionally, I need to correct all the permissions it changed and I?m not sure how to find them (and correct them).

I read the preparation guide, downloaded the files, moved them to the desktop and ran them and saved the logs.

BTW, the computer is not connected to the internet at ... Read more

Hi all.

One of my dad's friends was having a problem logging into Windows (initially all he had was the mouse pointer on an otherwise blank screen...). The problem was fixed, but when we eventually logged in, the antivirus, firewall and antispyware programs I originally installed were missing!

I reinstalled them, and ran them. AVG discovered a Trojan (I forget which strain it was), which was subsequently removed, while SUPERAntiSpyware (kindly provided by cybertech on a previous fix I had to do) found 111 threats (also removed).

I have the machine here with me so I can check it over further. I ran HijackThis so I can get your opinion on what to do next. Here is the log:

Hi. Back when I was in college and my computer was in a networking lab, we had to keep file sharing on Kazaa disabled so that we were only downloading files but others were not uploading files. They did this because it was clogging up the network with too much traffic going to and from our lab. However, now my computer is at home and I have a dialup connection rather than a T1 connection. I get a full 52kpbs on each connection. Well, my question is this, if I enable file sharing so people can upload from me, will this slow down my download speed at all on Kazaa? I have also heard that the higher the participation rating you have, the better the downloads you get. Is this true? Well, thanks for any advice or answers you can provide in advance.

A:Kazaa file sharing and Kazaa download speed...

First things first are we talking Kazaa or Kazaalite?

If it is Kazaa, I suggest you uninstall it and install KAZAALITE instead, thus removing spyware which is going to limit your download speed still further

Regarding the participation rating, allegedly so, but with Kazaalite, this is overridden, so it is immaterial

Your download speed can be affected, but you can limit the number of simultaneous uploads

I want to change from Kazaa to kazaa lite, run spybot and adaware in between and clean up my system.
I currently have a big file downloading and i'm about a third of the way through.
Does any one know a way i can make sure that i don't lose the half of the file i have already downloaded and that when i continue the download with kazaa lite i won't have to start the whole download again. I suppose the main thing will be getting kazaa lite to regognise the megabytes i have already downloaded.

I have kpe if that helps

I tried installing Kazaa Lite, Kazaa or WinMX at work, and I am unable to get these softwares connected. We have a LAN with a firewall, and trying dfferent options on all of those softwares didn't help.

I tried Kazaa at home (will switch to Kazaa Lite tonight) and never had any problems connecting.

Can anyone tell me what should the settings be to allow me to go through the firewall and get connected?

Thanks a lot.

I wonder if anyone might be able to help on this one:
I've used Kazaa before, and I just re-installed it to try again, but as before it is very slow and I find it very difficult to download much at all - my performance monitor shows that the CPU is 100% when kazaa is operational. Does anyone know of any settings that might improve performance?

A:Problems with KaZaA

Hi darkchyld98 and welcome to BCKazaa is a program with spyware bundled in. The best thing you can do is to try to uninstall it (you have to do that first) from Add/Remove programs and then run AdAware and Spybot S&D to get rid of the spyware left behind. Take a look at this page from SpywareInfo for a list of clean and infected P2P programs and get one that is clean.

I work at an ISP tech support, and in the last week there have been a rediculous number of calls where a user can't surf anywhere except of course our webpage because its hosted right here, i tell the customer to use winsockfix and the problem goes away.
The one thing these people have in common is that the ones i have worked on had kazaa on thier computer, which makes me suspicious, i know it comes bundled with various crapware but never have we had this volume of winsocks being destroyed. Is the newest version of kazaa or one of its piggyback programs now so poorly written that it causes this frequently, or maybe it is a conflict between two competing companies uninstalling eachothers crapware improperly? Maybe its something else, but its not our systems obviously, and its losing us customers because some people have set in thier minds from the start that "theres no possible way that could happen cuz i have norton updated" which really doesnt do jack for this because its not a virus, so they change providers and notify us afterward. The real kicker is after they change dialup providers the problem goes away.
The only reason i can come up with for this is that the provider's install cd reset thier winsock settings, which further stimulates thier belief that we suck.

This week something is in the air, and it stinks.

A:Possible New Kazaa related problems

Kazaa is third-party non-microsoft certified software and causes major problems corrupting Windows because, yes, it's so poorly compiled. Not the least of which, most folks have no firewall installed and they get tapped by hackers, crackers and other idiots. Users should be advised to install a firewall like free Sygate, colored link below, or in the case of WinXP, to enable ICF. The best thing is not to have CausA installed on your computer at all. Besides, it's mostly used for illegal activities.

It's likely not changing ISPs that helps them, most probably aren't saying the problem hasn't really gone away with ISP change.

I am at a loss as to what to do. Your help would be greatly appreciated please keep it simple stupid I'm not a techie sorry

A:Kazaa plus stall problems


Like many others who post here - I would strongly advise you to get rid of Kazaa from your system due to the insidious spyware that is installed with Kazaa. You can do so with Kazaabegone available here :

http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/ (Scroll down.)

Then go here :


Download Spybot Search & Destroy.
On install - run - click check for updates - get all updates - click check for problems - click fix all checked.

Then get the spyware free Kazaalite here :

http://kazaalite.host.sk/ - Just click the page that appears.

I've had this weird Kazaa/Kazaa_lite launch problem for some time (i've have re-installed win2k for couple of times).
Problem is that when i click the Kazaa/Kazaa_lite (following goes for both) icon, the program loads for about 1 second, and then it stops. Nothing happens after that and Kazaa/Kazaa_lite wont start. Kazaa.exe icon appears for that second in the Task Manager, but disappears then. I dont have a clue whats wrong...WinMX works fine, but i'd prefer Kazaa..

System:WIN2K, SP2.

Hi ! firstly........


Would be better if you just used KaZaaLite version 2 if you are you using both ?

Also all previous versions would need to be uninstalled.

Scan for any spyware using

Keeping your reference files up to-date !

Could use

'Spybot' along side 'Adaware'

Good Luck !!

Cleaning up computer I removed programs. Lost almost all desktop icons,all entries in start program. Many programs, including NAV, won't start (missing dlls).

Using XP I did a system restore and things were ok. I cleaned up computer again and same thing happened when I used add/remove programs to dump kazaa and associated programs (that was probably what caused it the 1st time-but at that time I did not realize it). Only now when I try to do a system restore, it will not work. Tried running Winsock fix.

Any suggestions.

Hey all
I am having problems with Kazaa Lite. Previously, I had version 1.72 I believe installed, and got bandwidth of up to 700 plus. I have DSL, so I expected this.

However, when I upgraded to version 2.0 (I went to the Kazaa Lite site, so I know it was the non spyware version) and the highest bandwidth result I got was 78.

So I decided to try version 1.72 again, and the highest I got was 94. No matter what I tried to search for, nothing higher then 94.

Finally, I uninstalled version 1.72, rebooted, and reinstalled. Now my highest bandwith is 54.

At that rate it'd take 10 minutes to download a song that normally took 20-50 seconds. What am I doing wrong? Why is my bandwidth so low all of a sudden?

Another question: My friend has cable modem, and he often gets download speeds of 120 kps plus, the highest I got was 70 kps. What is up with that?

I recently uninstalled Kazaa and downloaded Kazaa Lite. After installation, I had no problems what-so-ever, the program itself ran fine, and downloads worked great too. But through Kazaa, it will only play .wma files or .wav files, but no .mp3 files. This is a problem considering 98% of my songs are .mp3's. The version of K-Lite I am using is 2.1.0, which is based of of KMD 2.0.2. It also says that I have K++ version 2.0.3. I have no idea what K++ is, but I thought I'd tell you in case it can help you solve my problem. Thanks for the help.

A:Kazaa Lite Problems

You could just associate the mp3 file extensions with your prefered media player ie.. WMP, Winamp etc... whatever you have. The integrated player in Kazaalite is not that great anyway.

I have been experiencing problems with my PC stemming (I think) from my son installing Kazaa on my computer. It has been installed for over a year, but about 2 months ago we started seeing a great deal of pop ups. At the same time, the System32 folder opens up every time at startup, whatever that is. I tried Pop Up Stopper to some success, and then heard about problems with Kazaa - which I uninstalled, to no effect. I have also used the free Spybot application, but am still seeing increasing issues with different programs on the PC (Outlook, script error messages, etc). I am ready to wipe the hard drive and reinstall the ops system.

I recently downlaoded Kazaa Lite K++ 2.4.1 . I had previously been using Kazaa Lite 1.7 (or thereabouts). I have a DSL modem.

With v 1.7, I could download files fairly quickly at resonable speeds (ie. at least 2.5 kb/s). With version 2.4.1 all of my downloads are at speeds WAY below 1 kb/s and take FOREVER to get. I'm downloading some of the same files as before, so there really shouldn't be a difference. Where could the problem be?

PS - I don't really understand the whole K++ thing and the priority levels. Could this be the problem?

I opened up the kazaa folder and the file is their just kazaa is not opening it for some reason on the limited accounts. Do you know what is happening??


A:Kazaa problems with limited user account on Win xp

I've had that problem to. I assume It's cuz limited users just don't have enough privilages for Kazaa to operate properly. What I'd recommend instead is you download Kazaa-Lite from kazaalite.nl and install with administrator privilages then try running that under limited user accounts. That should work. Download it from kazaalite.nl cuz it comes with hacks like always keep participation level at 1000 and more...

kind of a noobie question but I will likely be creating a bunch of mp3s from audio cassette. If I wanted to have them available for everyone to have all I need to do is place the mp3 files in my kazaa shared folder? Also wondered how long they would need to be there until they propagated out enough so I could delete them.

As for the problem:

Just recently every file I download from kazaa (lite) comes up showing 'queued' as status. I need to do a 'resume' on all of them. I have the amount of files allowed to download set to 50 and I am nowhere near this number. Once I do a release the files download or show more resources but it is a pain.

I heard something recently about Kazaa bundling some sort of 3rd party software, in addition to the normal adware, that uses your system for processing tasks or something along those lines. Not totally sure, but it was something that sounded intrusive and unwanted.

After finally getting the Windows 10 Anniversary Update to install, as expected, I had a WIndows.0ld file. Following instructions posted here and elsewhere, I used Disc Cleanup to remove most of that file.

There are still two folders remaining in Windows.old from System32, one in Drivers (IntcDaud.sys) and one in DriverStore (intcdaud.info.amd64xxxxx.) When I go directly to System32, both drivers appear in the same folders where they show in Wndows.old. Disc Cleanup no longer even recognizes Windows.old, so I cannot run it again to remove what appear to me to be extraneous entries.

Can I safely use Unlocker to try to remove the remaining Windows.old file, which likely would only work after a reboot? If not, is there some other method, short of using the Jaws of Life or a ten-pound sledge hammer to remove the leftover Windows.old file?

I ran Stinger, Ad-Aware, Malicious Removal Tool, CC Cleaner, Housecall, HS Remove, cwshredder, Kill2Me, all of which found nothing, and did a System Restore which had no effect..

Then I ran Malwarebytes and Stopzilla both of which found some Trojans, Malwares, Ad cookies etc and deleted them. (No worms that I could see.)

Since then I still have the following problems:

When I click OK, the message box disappears and Firefox loads. Sometimes a few different pages load, Ask.Com, My * 10.Com, etc. A couple pages sometime try to load but there is a message box that says the locations couldn't be found. I click off those pages, I seem to be able to use Firefox without any further problems.

There's been a lot of trojans/malware on this pc in the past and although I've usually managed to eliminate most of the threats, I'm pretty sure there are still some leftover bits and pieces, so I figured I'd try posting this log to see if anyone could help me clean it up a bit, as it's not my computer, obviously I don't want to go messing about in the registry by myself.

Ok, finally got Smitfraud-C.Core Service and Virtumonde cleaned out. DriveCleaner2006 does not seem to want to go away now. Had some WinAntiSpyware as well. The only thing that seems to be hanging on at this point is the DriveCleaner. Here is the HijackThis log.

So I contracted Smitfraud-c, as named by Spybot, and like everyone else I couldn't get it off. My computer was just going nuts; adding desktop icons, opening my browser, countless prompts ostensibly notifying me of spyware removal tools, and actually running these fake programs. I tried a few smitfraud cleaners and other recommendations to no avail.
Finally I tried using HJT to "delete a file on reboot.." and deleted the dll associated with smitfraud-c. I think I determined the dll file with the SpybotSD recovery listings following a scan, or something like that. Anyway, after I did this SpybotSD was actually able to delete the Smitfraud-c object. After numerous scans with all of my clean-up tools, they are no longer picking up any more malware.
I was happy about this, however things still arent completely right: Boot-ups take a long time (malware is starting up and initiating its hijack, I think), my home page keeps changing, and I'm pretty sure I'm seeing browser hijacker entries in my HJT log.
Security and cleanup tools that I use: SpybotSD, AdawareSE, Spyware blaster, AVG, windows firewall, CCleaner, RegCleaner, Windows disk cleaner and every now and then I'll run rootkit scanners. Here's my HJT log:
