Kazaa - Any tricks to keep it working?

It just won't work for me for any longer than 5 minutes, 2 minutes if I click on "my kazaa". And then it just shuts off on me. I've tried deleted the the program and re-downloading it, but the samething happens, I've even erased the regestry keys numerous times and still the samething.
Is this happening to anyone else? what can i do?

No problems for me. Try reinstalling the latest version of kazaaLITE. I posted a couple of links to download the latest version. Do a search in this forum for kazaa. PS, its also possible that your ISP blcoked the Kazaa port.

also, google "kazaa lite" and you should be able to find it.

I've been using the same version of Kazaa Lite for at least 6 months and have never had a problem.

Check if you're sharing any *.DAT files. If you are, either move them to an unshared directory or delete them. (If for some reason you're sharing your whole drive/partition, you will probably have some DAT files.)

I had this problem start with me and I tried everything before realizing that I had recently downloaded a movie in DAT format (from a newsgroup). I just popped it into one of my shared directories and forgot about it. A couple of days later, I started Kazaa Lite and the problem began. After several days I realized the problem was the DAT file.

Hope this helps.

Does Kazaa Lite drag anyone else's system to a crawl? I have the same problem with winmx.

Probably needs to be scanned for spyware or doesn't have enough RAM.

Files that are partially downloaded are ,dat files, so that can't be it.

I actually meant complete .DAT files; i.e. if you have downloaded a .DAT file from another source or extracted it from a .BIN file and then are sharing it.

I just tested my theory. I put a .DAT file (a complete movie) into one of my shared directories and started Kazaa. Yep, about five minutes later, it crashed.

Perhaps that's not the cause in this scenario, but sharing completed .DAT files does cause Kazaa to crash.
