Kazaa-b-gone problem

1917 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Topkat
Hey, i was trying to take Kazaa off of my friends computer and the internet stopped working after that. When i used the program it said that it couldn't delete C:\program files\newdotnet and C:\program files\downloader couldn't be deleted because they were in use. This is the site where I got the file from, i used what i thought was the same program on my computer and it worked but this one apparently messed it up. I've heard that kazaa has dll's associated with the internet and i figure something along those lines happened with this. How am I supposed to fix it without access to the net on that computer?? Thanks for the help, and here's the site that i got the kazaa-b-gone from...

Thanks for the help....

Maybe you could try uninstalling and deleting thos efiles in safe mode.
How to start in Safe Mode

If your friend doesn't have the latest HijackThis d/l'ed can you maybe save a copy of HT zip and try get a log from their machine that you can save and post here from your pc?
Download both LSPFix and Hijack This to a floppy disk , copy both to your friend's computer. Run LSPFix to resore internet-connectivity. Unzip Hijack This to the Desktop , Scan Hijack This for a log only , ( Don't fix or uninstall anything yet ) Press scan , Scan button becomes Save Log button , Save the log ( NotePad ) to the Desktop . Have your friend return here to the Security Forum and Post a new thread with the Hijack This Scanlog , Someone will gladly offer assistance with the correct removal of Kazaa and it's associated garbage.

Good luck
I'll try that LSP fix's the log...

The LSPfix is needed to get connecton back. Make sure to include all references to in the fix. To be sure, reboot and goto add/remove programs and uninstall

That should be connectivity sorted then.

I'm not sure about this entry, and according to the info in the link I've provided microsoft haven't fully tested this yet. Probably best to ignore unless you're specifically suffering from the problem that is described in the link.

mosearch mosearch.exe Fast Search in Office XP - similar to the new revision of the Find Fast feature in Office 2000. Fast Search uses the Indexing Services in Office XP to create a catalog of Office files on your computer's hard disk. As with Find Fast - a waste of resources. If it can't be disabled via MSCONFIG try here

These 2 can be fixed in HijackThis:
Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all browser windows and "Fix checked"
