  1. I have tried to install the latest Bitcomet software 15-20 times since I got a new WIndows 10 laptop 3 days ago ... either nothing appears to happen, or I get that there is a runtime error 216 at 0040844A. I have disabled firewall and virus scan in McAfee (which otherwise would delete the software all together, saying it has a virus). Any suggestions?
  2. I am a 12-star Marshall. That's a term that I coined ... just means I have gone through the 0-100% level on the Marshall level 12 times (and for some reason have not been bumped to the next higher rank (or the one above that (which by now, I should have))). Is there something that is blocking me from being promoted? NORMALLY you only have to do the 0-100% thing 3 or 4 times before you are bumped up to the next level (and not over 12 as I have). Any suggestions? I know in the overall scheme of things, it doesn't really matter, just frustrating.
  3. Windows detects as a suspicious (?) program … I select "run anyway." I WAS able to install 1.61 from the "archives" … but I wasn't able to upgrade to 1.62 (tried, but was unsuccessful). I am OK with 1.61.
  4. Thanks, but I have uninstalled … and redownloaded it (from the bitcomet site) a dozen times at least. No error message … says installation complete … but there is no icon to click on … and no option to run after installation is complete.
  5. Just tried to install the latest version (1.62?) of BitComet on a new Windows 10 computer. It SEEMS to install fine, but does not give me the option to RUN it. All that is left is an icon on my desktop that says "continue BitComet installation" … clicking THAT just results in the restarting of the entire installation process. In the past, I believe there was an option on the dialog box that said installation was complete and to RUN it. Is this a bug in the install for the latest version? If so, please fix.
  6. I appreciate the response, however, that does NOT seem to do it. I tried turning off McAfee AND Windows Defender … and the same thing happens with every download attempt. A virus has been detected and the file deleted. Somehow, I finally got 1.57 (before 1.58 was available) to download a week or two ago … but after a few days McAfee (or SOMETHING) deleted the software from my computer. Any ideas?
  7. I am a LONG-TIME user of Bit Comet and don't recall having ever run into this issue before. At some point in the past 24 hours McAfee detected SOMETHING in the software and disabled my ability to run the software. I uninstalled it. I just went to download it within the past few minutes and WHILE DOWNLOADING McAfee detect a "virus" and aborts and deletes download. Is this a known issue?
  8. Got a message warning me about this when I started Bit Comet. Told me to restore downloads.xml from bk (backup file). I did that. It didn't help. Any OTHER suggestions? Thanks.
  9. I have been using bit comet for years, yet have no idea how to: << Also check if you have a lot of dropped data or if you have repeated hash failures on the same piece in your log.>> Could you please tell me how? Thanks. Just had another movie stop at 99.9% .. a well seeded YIFI copy also from TPB. Thanks.
  10. The "seeders/leechers" numbers come from the torrent sharing site (in this case, TPB). The 99.7% downloaded (and other ones not even starting) comes from bit comet.
  11. For example, now I am trying to download The Truman Show ... with 15 seeders and no leechers ... should be a quick, easy download. However, it hasn't started for hours. Is there something *I* can do to kickstart it? A few days ago, I started Frida (2002) ... it stalled at 99.7%, and hasn't moved for over 2 days (despite showing 4 seeders and no leechers). Suggestions/ideas? Thanks.
  12. I just got a new computer today ... which offered the option of upgrading to Windows 10 during set up, which I did. One movie downloaded, and the rest aren't. AND I have been unable to "sign in" all day (from the Bit Comet software).
  13. Why am I getting the "diamond" symbol next to a torrent (that is well seeded) rather than a down arrow? This has started to happen within last couple of days... What can I do to get rid of them and start the download? Thanks.
  14. I have several movie and tv show torrents that won't start downloading. Each has 25-200 seeders, and few, if any, leechers. Yet they won't start. Any ideas? When I download a piece of software (like update for Adobe Flash Player) it starts immediately and downloads quickly. Please help.
  15. The point I was trying to convey is that it was a Windows operation that was supposed to reset all settings, but not delete any personal files or software. The partially downloaded files are still there. But I don't see anything in BitComet (as are the files that had completed downloading).
