i've recently purchased a new computer and with the excitement of owning this new machine, purchased several computer magazines which have now become my bed time reading! On the various cover discs i have chosen to install some of the programs - Kazaa for one. My question is this: being very keen to ensure that my new investment is safe from hackers, viruses and such like, i installed ZoneAlarm which appears to be an excellent program. However, if people choose to upload a document from my computer, zone alarm kicks in, which of course defeats the object of file sharing. ie i can download from people but they cannot download from me. Zone alarm does not seem to give me enough info on who is trying to get at my files and what they are tring to download. I wish to use kazaa so that a number of users can sample mine and other bands music, so there is no copyright issue here!
So how do I use Kazaa and keep my computer safe? Can anyone help?
