It includes an option to add p2p to it's on on access protection and I believe Kazaa is one of the programs included.
However, I don't have the p2p protection enabled but avast still informed me I had a virus when downloading from Shearaza.
So in short, yes, it should do.

Just one bit of advice. Click on the link in my signature and get the Norton uninstall program. Just using add/remove doesn't get rid of norton from the computer. Norton must be completely removed before you can install Avast!.
