    I have heard that you can only get viruses if u download programs and videos from kazaa?...So does that mean u cant get viruses from just downloading Music?...

    Yes and no, really most of the viruses are in software, then movies, and there can be viruses within mp3s. The mp3 viruses are not prevalent and take advantage of the way explorer lists them in a folder to do damage. If you download from kazaa you should virus-scan everything, and set the virus scanner to check your system every night, better safe than sorry.
