    damn BSA. (Business Software Association.)

    Mebbe it was the RIAA though? They just hate other people.

    The MPAA is funny.

    Thats why its a great idea to get a small hard drive to sacrifice if you download an infected file. Oh yea by the way, Kazaa is Ghey...

    You know, it's not Kazaa that's ghey, it's the user...
    All you have to do is go to Tools, Options, Filter, and check on the box that says "Filter file types that may potentialy contain viruses"

    But filtering leaves out all the good pr0n! Photoshop or pr0n? The choice is up to you!

    Porn wins my vote. Why else would Kazaa be worth a fuck?

    here's a secret .. and of course .. i only use it to attain backups! OF COURSE!! Come on now!

    irc.criten.net ... #xdcc, #tmd-moviez

    that'll get you started. Now .. www.mirc.com .. that'll help too.

    GL!

    Make sure you make a backup of your virus checking software first .. and if you don't feel like making a backup of it on irc.criten.net ...


    www.mcafee.com <-- they have online .. free .. virus checking software. Aww, how nice.


    IRC > kazaa. Kazaa is an infested pile of garbage .. thanks to the RIAA, MPAA, and the BSA. (seriously)

    Viruses suck, my brother downloaded a game that had 2 viruses on it. One was a virus that ways annoying and ghey but kinda easy to get rid of. In AIM, ever time you sent 3 IM's or so many characters, it would delete everything that your trying to send, then insert a hyperlink that says "free porn" and would change the message everytime. The first time i experience it was when i was talking to this hot chick i know but she is one of those extremly religious good girls. Yea not good.

    The second one infected ever .exe file on my computer (a little over 8000) and make alot of them not work. Also it made it so you could not instal anything (like new virus protection crap) Finally after about 2 months there was a new online clean on Mcgaffes (sp?)

    I have never had problems with porn though.
