    Default Avoiding downloading virus with kazaa lite, and do I have a virus?

    Does any one have any tips for me to avoid downloading virus disguise as files I want?
    And I have been having trouble with my mouse lately. the cursor sometimes just move across the screen in a straight line randomly, and some times the mouse doesnt responed. Am I infected with a virus?
    I clean the mouse every time it happends but most of the time, the mouse is clean.

    http://www.housecall.antivirus.com for a one off Scan from the web

    In Kazaa lite there's an options menu which you can filter out potentially infected files, also make sure the suffixes of the filesnames are excluded e.g. exe.vbs
    you've done a virus scan eh? if not may i suggest AVG - its free and brilliant. the isn't kazaa lite good?!

    Many of the infected files i've found is software, small exe's that are disguised as "funny games" or something of the like, if your wanting good little games like that goto here. Avoid the pr0n :P

    righteo, hope this helps

    As previously said, dont download .exe or .vbs files..
    Update when Kiwitas says theres an update
    Try not to download small files that may be a virus, usually as you probably know, MP3s are around 4-5 megs, quality dependant, so i dont download anything less than 100KB!

    Cheers

    Hi Chilling_Silence
    did you know when you put in a URL link you can check it out and makes sure it works correct before you make a final posting, you can use "Preview" then if the link does not work or goes to a different web site, you can fix it up, before you "Post Message"

    Also Scan all .exe file s with a anti virus checker before using them
