Bittorrent On New Computer. Did I Miss Something?

Recommended Posts

To anyone who can help,

 

We have just purchased a new Windows 8 laptop and have since installed BitTorrent 7.9.2 on it.

 

We tried putting BitTorrent to use, but for over 3 days it hasn't advanced past the "Finding Peers 0.0%" stage.

Two different torrents from the same (trusted) site have given us the same problem, and the antivirus software currently installed is avast!

 

Did we miss something? Any help would be appreciated.
