nursemorph Posted August 16, 2013 Report Share Posted August 16, 2013 Hi. Before I start, I want to point out this is a possible reason and fix for those who may have suddenly, for no apparent reason, lost connectivity and functionality of BitTorrent in the last couple of days.I started getting issues with BitTorrent yesterday wherein I couldn't download anything. The peers list on individual torrents where showing as maybe 10 total when it should have been in the 1000s. In the bottom right corner (where you get the connection icons...orange triangle, green tick etc) there was no icon and, upon running the test I got a red cross in the first section and the second told me that my port wasn't open.The issues above started without warning or reason as I hadn't changed a single thing on my PC. The only change I had made was to download Microsoft Updates the day before. This morning I did a System Restore to a week ago (ie prior to the updates) and ran the connection test again and I got green ticks on both, indicating that everything is now working fine.I am running Windows XP SP3 so, presumably, the Update will only affect XP machines. I use Windows Firewall only and use MSE as my Anti-Virus. As I said, the only changes I had made was the Update and it works fine since the Restore. I am in the process of installing the Updates one at a time to find out which one is the culprit and will update you on what I find. Hope this is of help to some Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
