    Try using kazaa lite instead of the original Kazaa, it contains no spy-ware.
    You can get it from
    Completely remove Kazaa first (and any associated spyware).
    You can keep any partially downloaded files - no problem.
    Ad-Aware from lavasoft is good for removing spyware already on your machine.
    Hope that helped,

    In addition to the already-mentioned AdAware, there are also a
    couple of free programs that could be used *in addition*:

    Spybot Search & Destroy

    Spyware Blaster
