Help please,

When i add a file it starts off with a green arrow in the first column, but it then changes to a red one and nothing happens, its as though I am blocked, does anyone know what is happening and if i can correct it.

Thanks...

Have you tested with all other torrents stopped and using OpenOffice torrents (from http://distribution.openoffice.org/p2p/) yet?

I have tested with other torrents but still the same happens, as I mentioned i was in the process of downloading at the time and they just stopped. I will try OpenOffice though. Could my provider be blocking???

Did you download openoffice using the torrents or using other downloads?

Hi there, i went to you link and downloaded from the site, not from the torrent, does that make sense.

I wanted you to download using the torrent on the page I linked to test to see if that torrent worked.

Hi there,

I did try but it came up with invalid torrent file but downloaded it anyway but through either utorrent or bit torrent it did not want to know.

Getting "Invalid Torrent" errors with that selection indicates that something in your setup (either at your internet provider or on your computer) is actively interfering.

I have sent an e-mail to my provider, with the fact that it was downloading a film from ISOHUNT at the time the red arrow would suggest that the settings are good!!!

I am having same issue. On adding a torrent, Initially an upward Green arrow, which changes to RED DOWNWARD ARROW in about 10 seconds.

I was able to download the content a few days ago. NO changes made to laptop since then?

Could it be a virus attack.

I have Windows VISTA, HOME BASIC, and BIT TORRENT VERSION is 7.2.1.

Please help.

SEED and PEERS show 0(0).

ETA shows INFINITY

What internet security software do you have installed?

KESPERSKY INTERNET SECURITY 11.0.1.400

But I was able to download with this installed. A few days back, is when the problem started.
