  1. Thank you very much to both of you. The explanation on 'installcore' was useful. I understand now why it was flagged. This is the first time it has happened with a BitComet update. Hence I began to wonder. Thank you very much for the tip on interpreting virustotal reports viz., check Kaspersky and Malwarebytes. I'll move to 1.47 sometime soon. Thank you. :-)
  2. I would like to report a problem I encountered with the BitComet 1.47 setup.exe. It was auto-downloaded by my 1.46 BitComet client. My antivirus (NAV) flagged it. I then scanned the EXE on virustotal. The link for the full report is below.

  3. I actually did not know / realize the developers were from China. However I've always looked up the documentation here, which is so very well-written. Every sentence and paragraph is so beautifully put together. I realize now from para 2 you've written how much more BitComet does. I usually run a max of 10 torrents at a time, as otherwise it is likely to slow the system down. Mine is just a Intel dual-core with 2 GB RAM. I noticed very recently there is a Downloads.xml file along with my .torrent files. I suppose this is the file used by BitComet to quickly load
  4. Thanks again 'T.U.S'. I think i'll stick to running one instance at a time. I found, by googling that there are ways such as running another instance in a virtual machine, but it is just too much work. I picked up a few words in Mandarin during a recent trip to China, but am afraid it is not enough to converse with another person. :) Thanks Rhubarbfian for that info. I think I've used the Emule plugin long ago; and come to think of it, I missed taking a peek at a Chinese keyboard, while there. Thanks again both of you :)
  5. I have installed BitComet (1.40) in D:/Programs/BitComet. All the .torrent files are in the torrent/ subdirectory. Nothing in AppData to my knowledge. I took this precaution after the last time I upgraded my OS and forgot to backup AppData folder. There are some files in AppData/Roaming. But they don't seem to have any context related data. (files like fav.xml, passport.mht) However, something is preventing a second different BitComet.exe from starting up. Perhaps it was designed to run as a 'single instance' as is the case with some windows applications. The windows regi
  6. Thanks 'T.U.S.' Am new to these forums. I couldn't locate the signature. But found the archive here => http://www.bitcomet.com/en/archive I hope that's the one. I didn't know until now, that BitComet was available as a portable package. That's nice to know. I downloaded and extracted BitComet_144.zip, to a folder on my PC and double-clicked BiComet.exe. It merely transfers control to the already open BitComet 1.40 version. No new process is created. Thanks Rhubarbfian. I should clarify that I meant to say the application response was getting slow
  7. Hello. I've been using BitComet for some time now. Am currently using BitComet 1.40. Am running Win 8.1 and BitComet is installed in D:\Programs\BitComet All the .torrent files are stored in that directory. I wanted to create a separate instance of BitComet for a certain category of torrents and also because the number of torrents in the existing instance was quite high and it was probably getting a bit slow because of that. I fetched the latest BitComet 1.44 and gave it D:\Programs\BitComet_144 as the installation directory. I had a
