    Guys, I tried downloading a file by putting my settings into "high priority" Guess what. I left my computer overnight and next the thing I know, there is a virus entered my computer! :(

    I set my computer to turn off after 4hours and next morning I opened my computer and got a message from Norton saying that a virus is detected. Its high in level of risk. But by the way things in my computer run now, it seems that my computer isn't infected at all. I really do hope that thing was a false alarm..

    i doubt you got a virus from the torrent, this sounds impossible without running an .exe or something like that.
    either way you should proabably head over to the [bold]Windows - Virus and spyware problems[/bold] section

    The UTorrent client is quite good but i have a copy of the Usenxt client which can take up to speeds of 3megabytes per secon(ithink lol????) But still utorrent is ggod for me to, but it takes ages ane ages to download a small files (around 50mb) in this case i was trying to download a driver for samsung e900. Are there any other progs, which can download at high speeds and not lose any trackers or seeds?

    Im confused about 1 thing. So i have 6.2mb Cable with a 360k upload rate, if I set my upload to 36 (360/8 x .8) as this guide suggests wont that eat up all 80% of my bandwidth on just uploading alone leaving me only 20% to download? its my understanding that its proportional, please fill me in I fear that im lost in confusion =)

    audi, it is proportional but putting it to 75/80 percent will not straddle ur downlaod speeds, it will actually allow you to download at your peak and uplaod very well as well.
