    Hi everyone!

    I have recently had 3 people contact me that they get a 404 error when clicking on CJ or Linkshare links. I emailed them back that I don't know what they're talking about. Everyting works fine for me. But now I went over to my friends office. He has 3 computers. 2 have Kazza & Morpheus installed. 1 doesn't. The 2 that do have Kazza & Morpheus no linkshare or cj links were working on them. The 1 that did not have Kazaa & Mopheus installed the links did work on them.
    P.S. BeFree & Performics links worked on all of them.

    What's going on?

    Sick the network compliance teams responsible for policing the "Code of Ethics" ooops "Code of Conduct" on them. Let the Bot Wars begin with the innocent shopper caught in the middle of the artillery barrage.

    Ok, I have confirmed that Kazaa is causing the problem. So virtually MILLIONS of users are affected by this.

    Kazaa blocks CJ & Linkshare links through the hosts file.

    To undo that, a user would have to:

    1) Click the start button | search | for files or
    2) Type in "hosts"
    3) The HOSTS file you're looking for should be in
    C:\Program Files\KaZaA Lite
    4) When you open it in Word (or whatever word
    processor you have), you should see a really long list
    of urls.
    5) Delete the following from the list.,,,,,
    6) You might not be able to find all of those because
    I just listed them from memory. If you find something
    similar to the strings above, delete them.
    7) Save the HOSTS file
    8) Close your browser and try clicking the coupon link

    Is there any program that will fix this problem for users automatically without having to go through all these instructions?
