Well, why would it delete anything if it's gonna go ahead and quarantine it? that just sucks
I'm still guessing but here is what I think is going on, based on what I know about Kazaa.
When you install Kazaa you are really installing more than one program. Whatever malware is bundled with Kazaa is installed seperately so it runs all the time, whether Kazaa is running or not. MS Beta (Anti-Spyware) detects the seperate programs and deletes them. When Kazaa got quarantined it was done without the malware and I think that it won't restore without the malware.
I have used programs like Ad-Aware and Spybot to uninstall the Kazaa bundled spyware and then if you want to uninstall Kazaa you can't because of a missing file, cd_clint.dll. This is a file associated with CyDoor spyware. So in that case I reinstalled Kazaa, then uninstalled it and THEN I removed the spyware and that worked. This may work in your case. If you reinstall Kazaa you will need to disable the real time protection in MS Beta.
What I would do in this case is download the dummy cd_clint.dll (it fools the program into thinking its the real one but is not spyware capable) from here
. Place it in C:\Winnt\System32 folder. Try the unquarantine.
This dummy file is a drop-in replacement for unwanted spyware modules that may be violating your privacy. It allows you to execute a spyware-dependent program to recover data if its modules have been deleted, without worrying about unwanted connections being made behind your back. The dummy files can also be used without ad-supported software, to prevent such spyware files from being installed in the future.
If that doesn't work then I would reinstall Kazaa, try unquarantining (you may have to allow files to be over written), recover your files, move them somewhere else, uninstall Kazaa and then run the anti-spyware programs (MS Beta, Ad-Aware and Spybot) to get rid of the spyware.
