Kazaa

Hey, after I cleared up my computer with all the spyware removal programs, my Kazaa doesn't work because it says it detects spyware removal programs and that kazaa needs ads. So I uninstalled it. So I would like to know what's the best FREE new program I should download like Kazaa that I can still download stuff from that would operate with my spyware removal programs. Thanks.  ;D

Only for audio? I'm not sure but CleanKMD or KaZaA Lite Resurrection are the best spyware free ones out there.

I downloaded Kazaa Lite Resurrection and it is good but for some reason my CPU usage keeps spiking from 4% to 100% every so often while Kazaa is running.  Can you think of any way to stop this?

Under your task manager is it KaZaA Lite RR causing the spikes?

it has leveled off more now.  It's only going up to 10% now but I assume that it was Kazaa that was causing it because the computer started getting very slow once I installed it.

I downloaded KaZaA Lite Resurrection and haven't found it to be too good thus far.  Almost every song that I attempt to download will end up with not enough sources or it will finish downloading and then it won't play properly.  Any tips?

Nevermind I downloaded Shareaza and it seems to be working well for me.
