  1. 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 reputa

  2. Try setting your computer IP to a fixed value (not auto) such as 192.168.1.12 and make sure that BC has a fixed port value corresponding to one set on the router for that poarticular intranet IP. Don't use just one DNS - use both 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Sometimes you may need to use 192.168.1 as primary DNS with 8.8.8.8 as secondary, but 8.8.4.4 is also needed. Try it both ways That set of red lines tells me absolutely nothing. If you want a ping value, open a command prompt and type 'ping 192.168.1.1' (without quotes) and also try a ping to your isp (do NOT post that IP here or anywher

  3. I had the same problem a while ago. I turned out something called "UAC Virtualization" had been turned off. Fix that and you should be back in business.

  4. It could be a fault in windows itself. Occasionally I have occasional problems accessing some apps but I run the developers' version (think beta) with weekly updates. Ty opening a command prompt as admin and use the following command sfc /scannow Failing that, you may need to do a system restore Worst case scenario - format 😄 and re-install

  6. Tools: PILLAR DRILL : A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it. WIRE WHEEL : Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh sh*t' DROP SAW : A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short. PLI

  7. hello gabri2ktommy when I am working with bitcomet the Malwarebytes detects outgoing connections through different ports as you can see in the screenshot I upload With the antivirus and firewall I have no problem is the Malwarebytes who gives constant warnings when running the BitComet. I would make an exception for BitComet, but only if it is a false positive. Greetings! Hola, gabri2ktommy. Cuando estoy trabajando con BitComet, el Malwarebytes detecta conexiones salientes a través de distintos puertos, como puedes ver en la captura de pantalla que he adjuntado. C

  10. Please add a dark theme as an option since we use large monitors nowadays to greatly reduce the eye strain compare to the white theme.

  11. Hello, I love your software and the power it gives me. However, is there a Dark Theme that can be loaded? The bright white feature is a bit of a turn-off.

  12. set your LAN to use a fixed address (like 192.168.0.10) and, in your router, set a block of forwarding ports for both TCP and UDP to that address and make sure it's open in the firewall Set the port in Bit Comet to one of the ports in that list I'm not sure what you mean 'my ip is not hidden' - you might need a VPN to obfuscate your online IP but you will always be able to see it yourself

  13. I doubt if that's possible as the info for the dopwnlad is in the .torrent file itserlf. All you can do is to make a folder and download to that so that, at least, all episodes are in the one folder

  14. Ps. The behavior you noticed wasting data can be disabled by disabling the services listed in bitcomet options. This will make bitcomet operate like every other bit torrent client. The downside is you will no longer have the ability to complete torrents that are not fully seeded. Unfortunately the cost for this ability sometimes means data is wasted and that cannot be avoided.

  15. Without reading this entire insanely long thread it appears that the answer is obvious. When downloading a torrent using BitTorrent protocol you do not download files you download small pieces of those files. When using web seed you download the entire file even if you only need a small piece of it. This is the only way some torrents can complete. It's really not rocket science. If you have a torrent that consists of a 2GB video file and it will not complete using BitTorrent pieces because some of them are not available you will have to download the entire 2GB video file in order to make the m

  16. This topic is exactly how not to behave in this forum. This is a community support forum we will not tolerate our volunteers being harassed. If you don't like the advice you are given that does not give you the right to harass the person giving the advice. If you don't like the software nobody is forcing you to use it. No one here is obligated to help you. If you don't like the way bitcomet users are helping you you can email the development team directly. If you continue to harass our members you will be removed from the Forum.

  17. 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.

  22. 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

  25. First, make sure that DHT is checked in Options > Task BitTorrent. Also rightr click on the download and check in 'Advanced' as occasionally it doesn't set DHT. Also try a 'high' port number after setting a fixed LAN IP number in the computer > network settings. Open the router firmware and set that port to the IP number and port matching the one you just set. Try a complete reboot first: power down BOTH computer and modem/router, wait at least two minutes, restart the modem/router and, when it 'locks', restart the computer. One other possibility is the use of a VPN which
