I've been using grokster, which is very similar to some versions of kazaa
I disabled the spyware, and as soon as I start the program I click on stop at the top of the main page which prevents the start page from loading. I never get pop ups doing this

Use AnalogX's POW. You have to deal w/ the popups for a while, but once you ad them to the list, they won't come back. Also, it'll do popups from the web.

If you go to this site:

And click on "Supertrick," it will show you how to easily get rid of popups in Kazaalite.

I just started using POW a little while ago, do you know of anywhere to find block list for it. I see options for the import/export od them, but I can't find any.

It would be great if there was a site that has list for it, it would make it much faster.

Unfortunately no. This program/site was passed along to me by another member, El Scorcho. I imagine if you do a google search, you may be able to come up w/ something.

I use Naviscope which does remove popup adds, it is freeware and available at http://www.naviscope.com

Hope that helps.
