Hello there,

i am trying to install KAzaa media desktop, but i am facing the problem when trying to install files which require a digital signature. Mostly I am stuck with ‘cab’ files and the Internet Explorer - Security Warning states

"Publisher is unknown. This file was blocked because it does not have a valid digital signature that verifies its publisher.

I have a Win XP operating system and I.E. 6.

Kindly advise.

This is your computer telling you DO NOT INSTALL KAZAA!

Kazaa comes with so much spyware and other malware you are better off not installing it

Agreed, there are plenty of P2P software packages out there with no junk preloaded - though that doesn't mean you're not going to get a nasty surprise when you start downloading files...

If you insists on P2P filesharing,be prepared to get viruses, even if you take extra precautions.

Microsoft is continuesly testing widely used applications and approve to run on Windows. Your error message meand KAZZA is not yet been approved or tested.

You can still click "OK" button and install KAZZA.

As the others said you better take precautions. MAke sute that you virus definitions are up-todate and you are using a solid anti spyware tool.

Kazaa is really bad for spyware. Do yourself a favor and don't use it. It will cause no end of problems. Have a look at Spyware info's list of clean and infected file sharing programs
