Hi all!

does anyone use Kaaza for downloading music? is it illegal? i know a few NUS guys who download ... but not sure is it ok to download on your own PC? as in Singapore there is just no privacy ... starhub guys can literally log in to your computer sitting at the office :oops: ! thank fuully my comp is very clean! but since the pirated stuff is not there in Singapore? where the hell do i get the movies and songs from?

Hi there,

From my honest opinion, go down to any music shop and buy yourself a cd with songs that you like. Stop wasting time in downloading songs from the kazaa or any other. You will never know that you might download spyware while downloading your song. And that will give you more headache. I did once before, used to download songs from kazaa. Then later on, I found out that my system was infected by spyware. Can't seems to get rid of it though I have a anti-spyware program in my system. Last resort, I got to re-format my laptop. Such a headache.

Hope this helps.

Ps: But I heard that you can download legal songs from realplayer. But need to purchase it online and monthly too. Then again, I'm not too sure.

i'll advise u not to use kazaa and other such softwares. there are ways to hack into one's pc using backdoors created by spywares in such softwares.

i agree! :shock:

never download HotBar and Kaaza. best to remove such installed programs from your PC.

my PC got warning of being spied by unknown software/program, supposedly hacked thru these HotBar and Kaaza, etc... :roll: :roll:

luckily i have a spy protector installed. try getting SpyBot!
