do it manualy, It should be in C:\program files\Kazaa Lite
Then delete the kazaa lite registry keys, Start > run > regedit

Make sure you know what you are doing in the registry...

Hi charonana.

Don't use the built-in Add or Remove Programs utility that comes with Windows - try a separate one instead. I'd recommend Your Uninstaller 2004 for this purpose, to remove any stubborn components of Kazaa Lite that might be interfering with the uninstalling process.

Another program you might want to try out would be KillBox, a very handly piece of software that effectively 'kills' off annoying files that just refuse to be deleted, hence the name.

Hello there! ;)

Well, technically Kazaa is considered as spyware and can be removed by any Anti Spyware program that detects it.

If that doesn't work try going into C:/Program Files/Kazaa Lite and deleting the foder.

Good Luck!

Kazaa is just crap but I don't know about lite.
It's not from the same company which develops Kazaa either.
It shouldn't be a problem to uninstall as it shouldn't have spyware at-all.

The Kazaa lite project got crushed when the company who make kazaa found out, and they tried to make kazaa software not freeware (spyware).

The bottom line is: KAZAA is crap! ;)

You get tons of spyware just downloading from the kazaa network, limewire is much better, and, malware free! :tazz:

Kazaa, the original, malware-bundled software, is absolute garbage. It does let you acquire the free files you want, to an extent, but nothing can justify the fact that it totally conks up the system. Once installed, various spyware-ish behavior is promptly unleashed on the user's computer, and all those titchy malware components that the Kazaa user license somehow fails to mention about start on a wild rampage on the system and - to make long story short, pretty much annihilate the whole PC.

Kazaa Lite is known to be malware-free, but it is considered to be the 'illegal' version of Kazaa because it is, in reality, simply a copy of Kazaa, patched over to rid it of all those icky malware thingies and the like, repair bugs and other errors, et cetera. But, really, malware or no malware, Kazaa Lite is, to put it bluntly, basically an illegal version of an already illegal program - definitely not good news, I say.

Technically Kazaa lite or any other version of Kazaa is not illegal. It's a shareware program which lets users share their files to the world.

I don't beleive if you offer your files to the world it's illegal.... ? :tazz:

It depends on what you're sharing.

Thank you all for the fast response to my dilemma. The advice to us " uninstaller 2004 " did the job. Thank you all.
