    OMG! I feel like such a noob, but I have to ask so I feel like less of a noob once I know...I'm aware spyware is one of the greater tools of the devil, but what exactly does it do? Obviously, there are many different kinds, but generally, what the hell does it do? Is it a protocol for viruses/hackers/marketing places/all of the above? Help me out here..._X_X_X_X_X_[small]~Life is a liquid dream...let it flow!

    I use spybot search and destroy and that finds more spyware than any other programs I've tried, such as adaware or spy sweeper and it's also free. http://security.kolla.de/

    Also, even with kazza lite, spybot detected spyware. Unfortunately, if the spy ware is uninstalled, you can't run kazza lite anymore. Still, spybot helps get rid of all the other crap!

    Ps. be careful of viruses on kaza, i got one the first time i used it recently!

    felixcat, Ad aware 6 professional rules all :p

    lol but what i wanted to say was that, what its detecting with kazaa lite is cd_clint.dll. This file would have been listed as spyware but with kazaa lite the spyware would have been removed so dont worry about it!!
