Music download problem

By pandpdisco ·
Using Win XP. Having difficulty using 3 different softwares for music file swapping. My internet is working fine (DSL); however when I try to connect to WinMX, Shareaza or Kazaa...it won't connect. The Firewall 'appears' to be turned off (maybe someone could advise if I have done this properly?) and it is not blocked at the Provider's Firewall. The programs were working fine for 2 weeks but just stopped working for some unknown reason! If anyone knows even one of these softwares well or has seen it before PLEASE let me know. I can send further details to you if necessary.

if you are connecting to Kazaa and other music share sites you are no doubt loaded down with Malware/SpyWare.
Run SpyBot Search & Destroy 1.3 updated and AdAware 6 updated and remove everything they fiond. Look in your hosts file to make sure it looks like this:

127.0.0.1 localhost

Only the above line should be uncommented with #
