    Hi, I had the problem when i downloaded some free downloads from using torrent download, and since peer and seer are simultanerous, i thought of uninstalling the torrent. But the exe could not be deleted. I searched and deleted all instances of torrent, including my downloads, I went to regedit and did a clean wipe of any entries. After that, i rebooted and found to my happiness that all is well, but failed to notice, that eventhough, the modem is glowing all connections, internet etc, i could not access internet from any browser. So, i checked the connection etc. I was astonished to find that my ethernet connection is not established. I had to reinstall the windows to totally get rid of the problem.
    My question is : is it possible to stop the ethernet connection with their program.
    Nowadays so many persons are using this. if this is not correct, then how it hit only my computer. I have lost important programs because of this

    Maybe he simply shot his LSP stack with that 'clean wipe'. Registry is not for the faint-hearted. :chempoff:

    Thank you. I think that it is safe to avoid using. Once i start the download only, i saw that peers and seers, but my friends are downloading freely huge files. I also heard that it is not from servers site,but from computer to computer. Thanks sirs
