I used to have kazza lite installed and all of a sudden it has dissapeared. No one has uninstalled it, it is no where in the start menu, the desktop icon is gone, and it is not in the add/remove programs list, the kazza lite folder is still there, but the executable is gone. I recently installed zone alarm internet security suite and upgraded xp to service pack 2. I suspect the latter uninstalled it somehow. Is microsoft really this crafty? Any ideas?

Yes fartman,microsoft has blown away kazaa. Along wit sp2 comes the security suite. The firewall is probably blocking it and anything else of that ilk until you open it {accessories, system tools) and make exceptions with the tab in the firewall settings. You should probably make an exception for your ISP while you are there.

I'll guess and say that zone alarm internet security suite removed kazaa as it includes a spyware cleaning module.
