Default Kazaa and Kazaa Lite problems

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?

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?

or you can try Shareaza. Supposedly doesn't have any adware or spyware, and checks four different networks for your downloads.
