    With almost every update to BitComet, we get a short flurry of posts complaining about a virus or trojan. There isn't one! If there was one, the forum would be swamped with complaints - that doesn't happen and we only get a handful of people claiming that it is 'infected' However, perhaps this will help explain why it happens (from the installation notes on another app) "This release's binary is packed with an executable/dll compression tool to reduce his size (for an easy and quick upload/download). Unfortunately, some of these compression programs have a bad reputation in the security software industry, mainly because almost 99% of trojans/worms/etc. are packed with similar tools (or variants of these), and this self-unpack behavior is taken by some antivirus apps as an alarm signal. Basically, this means that any trusted program packed with one of these tools can be erroneously detected as a virus, something known as a "FALSE POSITIVE"." The 'cure' is simple - once the program has been downloaded (and any respectable A/V app would have scanned it on the download), TURN OFF THE A/V BEFORE INSTALLING and turn it back on after installation is completed. If there had been anything nasty in the file, the A/V would have caught it during the download.

    It's probably because the website no longer exists - it's not part of bitcomet and BC has no control over external sites. There are othersearch engines,but you'll have to google for those The following error was encountered while trying to retrieve the URL The DNS server returned: This means that the cache was not able to resolve the hostname presented in the URL. Check if the address is correct.

    This bug has existed for quite some time for me, and I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing this, and/or if the dev team is working on a solution. This has consistently shown up despite multiple clean installs of windows over like... a couple YEARS... Thoughts? Screenshot at IMGUR

    That sounds as if you were trying to install from a .torrent file. What it means is that, whatever you are trying to run doesn't have anything installed that is capable of opening it. Did you try a new download from the main website? Do that first and then run it

    We seem to be getting people all over the place going on about a 'new decade' which doesn't actually happen for another year. I thought we went through all that in 2000. A year ending in zero is NOT the start of a new decade - it's the END of one (a 'new' decade stars with a '1' as there never was a year zero). Look at it this way - if you're asked to count to ten, you start at 1 and finish at 10 - you don't run from 0 to 9

    It sounds as if there is a problem with the seed file (it can happen and everyone has the same issue)

    You are getting 'false positives' - the recommendation for installing ANY new app is to stop ALL running programs. Despite what some people thimk, this INCLUDES turning off the A/V dusing an instal (it will have been checked during the download). It's possible that the bundled app (it changes from version to version) is what triggers the A/V. I can assure you that there is no virus or trojan in BC - The 'warnings' are another matter entirely. It's possible that you have something on your computer that is causing that, but without the actual details (or seeing it myself) I can't help there. All ( can say is that it doesn't occur with Adaware A/v, nor with Defender on my computer)

    You cou;d put a request in one of the torrent sharing sites or try googling for the episode name. Unfoertuinately you can't download if there are no seeds

    What size is your pagefile? You may think that, with 32 GB, you don't need it, but you actually do, especially when multi-tasking. I have 24 GB here (that's the max on my i7) but I also have a 32 GB pagefile (I multi-boot and have Linux on one SSD and W 10 on another) - swapfiles for both are on the other drive to stop disk 'thrashing' when accessed (pagefile.sys on the Linux drive and the Linux swapfile partition on the W 10 drive)

    Two Friends meet up in a Bar. The first one asks, “Did you hear the news – Mike is DEAD...??!!!” “Whoa, what the h*** happened to him?” “Well he was on his way over to my house the other day and when he arrived outside the house he didn’t brake properly and boom – He hit the curb, the car flipped over and he crashed through the sunroof – Went flying through the air and smashed through my upstairs bedroom window.” “What a horrible way to die”.. “No no, he survived that, that didn’t kill him at all. So, he’s landed in my upstairs bedroom and he’s all covered in broken glass on the floor. Then, he spots the big old antique wardrobe we have in the room and reaches up for the handle to try to pull himself up. He’s just dragging himself up when bang, this massive wardrobe comes crashing down on top of him, crushing him and breaking most of his bones.” “What a way to go, that’s terrible”.. “No no, that didn’t kill him he survived that. He managed to get the wardrobe off him and crawls out onto the landing, he tries to pull himself up on the banister but under his weight, the banister breaks and he goes falling down on to the first floor. In mid air, all the broken banister poles spin and fall on him, pinning him to the floor, sticking right through him.” “Now that is the most unfortunate way to go”.. “No no, that didn’t kill him, he even survived that. So he’s on the downstairs landing, just beside the kitchen. He crawls in to the kitchen, tries to pull himself up on the stove, but reached for a big pot of boiling hot water, whoosh, the whole thing came down on him and burned most of his skin off him.” “Man, what a way to go”.. “No no, he survived that, he survived that..! He’s lying on the ground, covered in boiling water and he spots the phone and tries to pull himself up, to call for help, but instead he grabs the light switch and pulls the whole thing off the wall and the water and electricity didn’t mix and so he got electrocuted, wallop, 10,000 volts shot through him.” “Now that is one awful way to go”.. “Hold on now, just how the h*** did he die”..?? “I Shot Him”.. “You Shot Him..?? What the h*** did you Shoot him for”..?? “Cos, he was wrecking my f***ing House

    The server is down - there is another thread dealing with this issue
  19. 1 point
    Read the previous posts - the server is down (and as it's run by volunteers it's not likewly to be back until the beginning of the week at the earliest). You can still upload and download - the only difference is that you won't collect any points (which can't be exchanged for beer anyway - they're just a bit of fun)

    I have no idea what is happening, but I have the same problem. And yesterday I couldn't get in to the Forum as well... And this seem to happen every year at around this time... And here even my starting time with Comet is WRONG! I did NOT start in 2014, but in 2009!!!

    You need to set up using a fixed IP number and set the ports in your router to forward to that port.

    It;s a 'false positive'. (McAfee is known for this in other apps). Turn off the a/v off for the download and install and then turn it back on. The app is clean, provided you download it directly from source

    Without an open listening port you will not receive any peer initiated requests. The only way you can connect to a peer is if you initiate the connection and most peers in a swarm already have the connections they need. As new peers enter the Swarm they will try to connect with others except they cannot reach you. You will not know they exist until you receive a Tracker update and by then they may have all the peers they need. If you cannot receive incoming connections your performance is going to be horrible on most torrents. I highly recommend you get a better internet connection and mobile broadband is never a good option when using peer-to-peer downloading. Fiber optic is usually the best option
