    You might want to check the Norton website for instructions on removing the Hawawi virus. I receieved it unknowingly while using Kazaa Lite. Hawawi changes filesizes for mp3s, mpegs, .txt, and many other filenames to zero. The names of the files will still be there but the filesize is now zero. It also adds a ton of files with sexual names into your Windows\System folder. It's tough to get rid of and (at least in my case) the files were unable to be recovered. After killing the virus and reinstalling Windows I have learned to be more careful while using Kazaalite or any other P2P proggies.
