    Ad-Aware. It's free; you can get it from www.download.com or www.hotfiles.com

    HOWEVER: it will identify Cydoor as the spyware in Kazaa, but you can't get rid of it. If you do, Kazaa will stop working.

    Your best bet, if you're going to continue file-sharing through these programs, is to find a different one, like Xolox (no spyware).

    here is the url to download Ad-Aware
    from PC Magazine
    http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,7423,00.asp
    the 15.00 for advanced is worth the price.
    I use CuteFTP and found spyware in that program which is a major bummer, I have complained to the company requesting a refund in full.

    ps if you have windows XP I recommend a free program from Microsoft called Tweak UI very cool to use, manage all your start progams, features, cookies and more from it
