Kazaa Lite Version 2 and ZoneAlarm

Question: Kazaa Lite Version 2 and ZoneAlarm

I run ZoneAlarm (Not Pro) and Ive just installed Kazaa lite Version 2. I was running Kazaa Lite 1.7 just fine, but 2 is causing trouble.

I'll try to explain everything I've noticed without rambling.

When I try to get Kazaa to connect with ZoneAlarm running, it takes a long time, but it actually does connect. While connected my machine is struggling, CPU usage way up and things get slower.

When I try to connect with ZoneAlarm shut down, it connects quickly, and there's no strain on the system.

Old Kazaa was listed in the Allowed programs area of ZoneAlarm, but I removed it. I figured when I tried to connect new Kazaa it would pop up the window and ask me if I wanted to allow it, but that didn't happen. Also, I try to manually add it to the list, but nothing happens, it won't appear in the list.

At the top on the ZoneAlarm program control screen, you see the icons of active programs. KazaaLite's icon is there and flashing, and if you scroll over it you get the bubble that says "Kazaa Lite Listening to Port(s): TCP: 1214,80"

So, there you go. I don't really know what to do. ZoneAlarm is not actually blocking KazaaLite, but its not getting along too well with it. Anyone know what settings I need to change to make them work together?

Hi,

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.

Laurent

Hello.

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

ANY HELP MUCH APPRECIATED THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!!!

Kazaa lite -
every now and again when i try to start up kazaa lite i get the message "Can't find Kazaa Lite registry keys" then I uninstall Kazaa lite and re-install it and it works fine for a little bit - is my Ad-aware 6.0 or Spybot Search and destroy messing with the registry keys - or do i have to uninstall and install kazaa lite in order to use the program??

Kazaa -
I uninstalled Kazaa with Kazaabegone, but it was still on the Add/remove programs list - try to remove it there - it can't "C:WINDOWS\system32\cd_clint.dll" it's can't find these modules or nodes or whatever it is - I read one of your threads - installed Kazaa, then Kazaabegoned my computer - still not gone - then I downloaded your link http://www.cexx.org/cd_clint.zip

Hi, I was a longtime K Lite user, and it decided to not work any longer. When i try to open K Lite, it shows me the "Kazaa Lite has encoutered a problem and needs to close" everytime. I decided to go back to regular Kazaa, but everytime i click the Search tab, it shuts down. Anyone?

Answer:Kazaa and Kazaa Lite problems

First you should stay away from Kazaa as it is reportedly full of spyware. Kazza lite is pretty much the same thing w/ out the spyware. I use it on my pc and have had no probelms (K-Lite).

secondly w/ your problems, it might be you have some spyware installed... have you tried any anti-spyware utilities to check for any infection?

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.

I have Kazaa Lite, the adware is removed, but I'm wondering about the other stuff.

Anyone have a good descrption of what that other stuff is, and if Kazaa Lite has it? I only heard a brief little bit of info about it, never got a good understanding.
 

Answer:Kazaa and Kazaa Lite

Here is a link that explains it pretty well. They do mention as you will see that it is now more adware than spyware. Hope this helps.

Question: Kazaa - Kazaa Lite

Hello there!

I am not too up to date on the Kazaa issue.

I found Kazaa lite, older versions for download, but everywhere else kazaa and kazaa lite aren't free anymore.

My girlfriend says Kazaa lite is UK based and you won't get arrested/sued for downloading with kazaa lite.

I really don't want to get her in trouble, I am not teh smartest man, but I try.

She hada copy of kazaa lite from soemone who had it on disk...

I just wanna know if there is a safe version to use, and or maybe a different/better program than Kazaa.

Also...

Does Kazaa/Kazaa lite ofeer any method of screening the peer-peer files ?

Or could someone attack a worm to an MP3 and you download it without your anti virus protection on and recieve it?

I haven't had to deal with any of this stuff at all. I am just a performance PC builder for gaming. I don't download anything, but my girlfriend does, perhaps the wisdom of the [H] will shine through yet again for this individual.

 

Answer:Kazaa - Kazaa Lite

Well since K-lite is an illegal program to use, this thread is a no-no, but i could be wrong. And i thought kazaa had a program called bulldog or something like that, that scanned the files you searched or downloaded, for viruses and worms.

Question: kazaa & Kazaa Lite

i noticed that in kazaa lite, i have a option to disable or enable port 1214 . i was just curious, it was under the privacy tab, how does this port effect me? even if im behind a firewall? or does it at all

Answer:kazaa & Kazaa Lite

From the Kazaa help file.

What Internet Providers might block Kazaa?

Possible Internet Providers blocking KaZaA:
AOL
Road Runner
Charter Communications
AT&T

Some Internet Providers block port 1214 which is key in making Kazaa Lite work. Some Internet providers don't block the port, but find other ways of blocking Kazaa (Lite) and other p2p applications. Read below on how to see if your port 1214 is blocked.

How can I see if port 1214 is blocked?

You can check this with a local port scanner. Make sure KaZaA Lite is running when you do the scan.

What can I do if port 1214 is blocked?

Usually when port 1214 is blocked, this is because of a firewall or a proxy server. With programs such as Socks2http or Http-Tunnel you can bypass these firewalls and proxies.

If you use Kazaa Lite 2.0.0 or higher there is another thing you can try:
Go to Kazaa Lite options. Go to the firewall tab. Change the port from 1214 to anything above 5000. For example use port 7000. This way you don't have to use any of the tunneling programs described above. Just as you have no restrictions. Now the first time you connect with this new port settings may take some time. As soon as you are connected for the first time, the next times it will connect much faster. If this trick does not work, then try some more ports. You can also try ports such as 21 and 80.

Question: Kazaa Lite?

Im not sure if its ok to ask about it... but I recently did a harddrive swap and have to download Kazaa Lite on the new harddrive. When I go to the old k-lite site I had bookmarked, it takes me to this site: http://www.klitesite.com/
Is it just me being paranoid or does this site look like bait to catch "illegal file sharers". I dont think I have reason to be paranoid considering the fact that I've bought 5 cds this past month and used kazaa to download movie files and song files of unsigned, lesser known bands who support some sort of file sharing.
Well my question again is, is this site for real? The site reads more illegal than my intentions. It sounds like they're trying to sucker people in with this:

"Learn how to get...

Unlimited DVD Quality Movies

Question: Kazaa lite help

I downloaded Kazaa lite yesterday and its just not working out. Whenever I try to download a song, it just says connecting for about 15 minutes, then it says more sources needed. The actual Kazaa is connected, and several users names will pop up and leave the screen while it says "connecting". But it just never actually starts downloading from any of them.

Just to test it out, I had my room mate download it onto his computer too. And for some reason it has been working just fine for him. Do you have to change any settings on your computer for it to work? I was having great luck with Audiogalaxy, but they messed it all up, so i'm trying to move on.

I also tried downloading iMesh and it does the exact same thing.... which leads me to believe it is something to do with my computer and not the actual programs. I got rid of iMesh, but I'd like to get the Kazaa lite working if I can.

I've been using Kazaa Lite since it was first released, but this situation has me somewhat confused.

Usually, my firewall (Kerio) blocks the Kazaa website (under the "Web" tab in the main program). However, today, my firewall gave me the option of permitting or denying an outgoing connection. This seemed a bit strange, however, that's not my question, as I don't see how an outgoing connection could have caused this. I felt it was worth mentioning though.

My problem today is that the website became kazaakpp.com. Now, I could be wrong, and please correct me if I am, but not only does this site look "suspicious", but I don't remember it being the default site.

Can anyone confirm for me if this is the correct site, and, fi not, tell me what it is and does and how to get rid of it? I'm about to run an Ad-Aware scan just in case.

Here's a screenshot:

EDIT: The Kazaa "web" folder has files called "Main", "Start" and "Top", which I believe to be the default sites for Kazaa and, for what it's worth, they look familiar. Here's a screen of the "Main" file.

Hello all,

I fix computers for a living on an onsite basis, and what I see a lot of (especially with the college crowd) are downloads of P2P networking garbage, specifically Kazaa. I know that it is a piece of you know what, but I've read that Kazaa Lite has all the "benefits" of Kazaa without all the spyware/adware/malware garbage of original Kazaa.

Question: Kazaa Lite Problem

i uninstalled and reinstalled kazaa lite v2.4.1 and i had files being downloaded while i was uninstaling. I still have the DAT files in my shared folder.

How do i get those files to start downloading again?

because i dont want to have to redownload the files again.
 

Answer:Kazaa Lite Problem

Just Redownload the files, it doesn't really matter unless of course you have 56k which begs the question, "why would you be downloading in the first place?"

Question: Kazaa Lite Speed

I have kazaa lite installed on my cpu. Every time i go to download something, I get about 18kbps!! (o yea, I have a 56k modem..). I'm thinking to myself, ok maybe i'm having second thoughts on buying cable. But, I go to listen to the song after its done and all I can hear is this cccccccccckkkkkkkkhhhhh chhhhhhhhhkkkkkkk, like the sound when i dial up. I don nopt know what is going on. Every once in a blue moon it will download at the normal 6kbps and the song will play ok. Does anyone know why this is happening? It is really bugging me. I want to keep K-Lite because it has almost no ads and it works really well on my cpu. Thanks

I am just writing this thread to warn people that KaZaA Lite used to be spyware free but now contains a trojan called Brilliant Digital which takes up bandwidth and when sending the spyware data back to it's server messes up your internet connection with either it disconnecting frequently or error messages like 'DNS server unreachable or unavailable' Just type 'brilliant digital trojan horse' in Google for more info. Having this trojan on my PC also let a virus called 'Exploit-CodeBase gen' which was a bugger to get rid of! I guessed something was up when I downloaded what I thought was a genuine file but when attempting to run it a message came up on my screen saying that 'the program was in use' and also it meant that it couldn't be deleted either even in safe mode. I have since decided to uninstall KaZaA Lite from my PC!

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.
 

Answer: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.

Question: kazaa lite virus

I've heard rumors about the RIAA hiding viruses in various files on Kazaa, but didn't believe that it was actually happening. Well, today I d/l a file from 2 users that was a music file. I really do just sample music from Kazaa, and if I like it, I'll buy it!

Anyway, after the file was downloaded, I clicked on it to open it. The very second that I opened it, my XP locked up and would not respond. I reset the machine and now every time I hit login I get a BSD, or physical memory dump. It spans all users on the PC so noone can logon. As soon as I put in the password, it locks up with the BSD, so I can get to the logon prompt but no further.

I will admit that a lot of this was stupidity on my part. I had just installed the XP, and had ZERO AV installed. I was also running under administrator so another strike for me.

My questions are: Has anyone else heard of nasties on Kazaa like this? Also, do you think that most AV's would catch a specific bug written for someone like the RIAA? Lastly, does anyone have any idea how to fix my PC? No biggie if not because it'a a new install. I have tried the recovery console on the XP Pro disc, but no joy.

Thanks,

dtugg

Question: Block Kazaa Lite

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum but i think it is a security risk. I've caught my roommate using K-Lite and i've already got my ISP watching me because they received a complaint about spam coming from my IP address. Maybe his box is infected but i'd like to do something to prevent this from happening again. We connect through a Linkysys WRT54G router. What can i do?
 

Answer:Block Kazaa Lite

Best bet is to just talk to him about it. Does he pay for part of it? Then you really have no right to go around arbitrarily blocking him from anything. Discuss the security and legal issues involved, and see if he will agree to stop using it.

I'm trying to determine what's going on with Kazaa. I can't connect to the Kazaa network, is it kaput? I've got K++ 2.0.3 and I haven't been able to connect. I reformatted and got a new ISP since I tried connecting to Kazaa last, but even recently I can't connect. Is this my settings, my version of Kazaa, or is there nothing to connect to? Help please.
 

Answer:Kazaa Lite still working?

I'm using kazaa lite and it works fine. Check your settings, it's probably not detecting your connection. I don't have kazaa on my work computer so I can't give you any more pointers than that, but I'm sure someone else will give you more detail.

There is no spyware with kazaa lite but ad aware detects it.

Can some one tell me the one or ones i need to leave and not quarantine ?
Thanks
 

Answer:Kazaa lite + ad aware 6

Kazaa lite does not contain spyware, AdAware is detecting a faked copy of the cydoor DLL.

Answer:kazaa lite problem

Why would you have to pay? kazaa lite is free
http://k-lite.com

Or did you download kazaa gold or premium kazaa or MP3 Download HQ and pay for it?
Well, all 3 of those programs are just stolen, old versions of the REAL kazaa lite. Those people took someone's software & idea, relabeled an OLD VERSION of it to make it look like its their own, and then they trick people into paying for it.

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?

Hi jinger_angel,welcome to the forum, just what is the problem you are experiencing? are you saying it just sits there and doesnt connect you to Kazaalite? because it should do that automatically, usually after just a few seconds, and you dont need to do anything for it to do that,what version have you updated to? ........ The reason I am asking is that there are a few problems with the site at the moment and you may have a corrupted download, the new version of Kazaalite 2.1.1 is due out very shortly according to the site and it may be better waiting for that

you should also note that the downloads from Kazaa are HIGHLY dependant upon the upload speeds at the other end and how many nodes there are for that file. So, you're pretty much at the mercy of the "other people".
