You have a problem, some sam site is illegally linkend to your site :

http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=kazaalite

For the users :


K-Lite is free , filesharing clients are completely free.Remember all p2p clients are free with the exception of Napster and Itunes (please only visit the offical sites). Ignore the fraudulent scam sites that charge money for them. Filesharing clients also do not require subscriptions of any kind: these subscriptions do not exist. The fraudulent scam sites have stolen a lot of sites which previously offered the real filesharing clients for free. Also look out for dailers, keyloggers, browser hijackers, adware and spyware included in so called "free" software. If you do have been tricked in paying for free software to the fraudulent scam sites, then contact your credit card company to see if your money can be refunded. Never pay for free software!

Thats not true, charging for the software is not illegal, wrong or incorrect. Some p2p apps do come with a price, they are called shareware. The time spent developing the software costs someone, it does not all magically appears from thin-air. The software that is usually freeware is often supported by Ads. This helps pay for the software development.
If a user does not like ad or spyware supported software, then a user can chose to pay for software that comes with no ads, or find something thats freeware and contains non of those. But saying "all p2p software is completely free," is not correct. Though the majority of these app are indeed freeware, whether ad-free or ad-supported.


Some commerical p2p software titles.

Acquisition. Innovative Mac P2P software. $15.99 (http://www.acquisitionx.com/)
Drumbeat, Mac p2p software $34.95 (https://ssl21.pair.com/grndlvl/commerce/index.shtml)

When I go to the main page at http://www.oldversion.com and scroll all the way down to the bottom, The Link that says:

"Kazaa Lite Alternative" and it points to: http://k-litetk.com/oldversion/

That is actually a SCAM Link which the website is misleading and tricks people into buying a subscription that does not exist (meaning the site is stealing money from people)!!

Kazaa Lite is 100% FREE Software and does not require any subscription or payment!!
The Real Official Kazaa Lite website is: link removed ~locustfurnace

Please fix your link As Soon As Possible!!

Thank You!!
