I would add my voice to Paul's, setting a proxy up would solve your problem.
We found that we successfully blocked new installations of Kazaa by blocking
TCP and UDP packets going to port 1214 and also, oddly enough, sourcing from
1214 on the inside of our network. That coupled with a blanket port 80 block
has prevented new Kazaa instances from connecting. We've been purging the
existing installations by using the PS Tools package to remotely search and
destroy the Kazaa folder.
