KaZaA - Please help

Hey,

I'm working with KaZaA for about a year, and in the last month, each time i open KaZaA it consumes much cpu time (about 80-90%).

My shared folder contains about 1200 files, so i tried to not sharing any files, but still the cpu use is very high.

Anyone?

10x,
   Gilad.

first did you get the update
1.51 (I think)
2. try uninstalling and reinstalling
3.get zonealarm (free) and see if anything else (trojan) is accessing the net
4. update your antivirus and scan your machine

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Also, I just read an article today about Kazaa that may shed some light onto what kind of product you are dealing with here:

Time to dump kazaa - anyone who wants to "own" your PC "while you're not using it" are a bunch of slimeballs (since I've never seen anyone provide an adequate explanation of how to determine what exactly you're not using at any given time), and not fit to distribute software in any way, shape, or form.

I can just see the fiascos brewing - what happens if I keep a 4G parition free for CD burns, and then kazaa decides that it can store a bunch of crap there because I'm not using it, and then it's full the next time I want to burn a CD.  Yeah, this is just what I've always wanted.

Of course, that never stopped anyone from accepting a Mickeysoft EULA, so maybe I've just got a strange view of the world.

Excuse me Captain but I think you don't know what Kazaa is. Kazaa does not "own" your PC "while you're not using it". It's an app for sharing files with other users over the internet...

I think you are refering to apps like Seti@home (look for aliens) and United Devices (look for a cure for cancer).

But any way, which OS are you running Gilad?

Eventually the problem was too many files and directories in the download folder…
I'll accept scraig84 answer for it was the closest one.

Thanks to all of you!
