  1. Data streams from seeders change all the time, depending on their settings abnd how many files they are seeding and then number of leechers. The reports aren't instantaneous - they take time to come through and all you get is an average (which isn't in real time either) About the only value I ever check is the approximation of remaiming time
  2. Do Las Vegas churches accept gambling chips? This may come as a surprise to those of you not living in Las Vegas , but there are more Catholic churches than casinos. Not surprisingly, some worshipers at Sunday services will give casino chips rather than cash when the basket is passed. Since they get chips from many different casinos, the churches have devised a method to collect the offerings. The churches send all their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan monastery for sorting and then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in. This is done by the chip monks.
  3. Which part of 'do not spam' are you having a problem with?
  4. It's a false positive - you would need to contact Symantec on this issue As for Windows Defender, you shouldn't have two A/V apps running at the same time (I've checked here with Adaware disabled and Defender doesn't even hiccup) Btw - asking the same thing over and over is not going to change the answer
  5. You could try setting an 'exclusion' on the bitcomet foldder in C:\Program Files and see if that helps. As for Defender, that doesn't happen with me (but I run the 'fast ring' beta versions of W 10). It may or may not be relevant, but I've come across other apps with failure that were installed on a 'hacked' version of W 10 (the KMS file is the culprit)
  6. You need to set up port forwarding as follows: Set your computer for a fixed IP number, then set up a post number to that IP Port forwarding not on a fixed IP will give that error
  7. 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)
  8. False positives on any A/V program are actually quite common. The fact that you haven't had one in a long time is pure luck and nothing more. Kaspersky seems to be most prone to this happening (it tends to be over-aggressive, but not to the same extent as Norton). However, the standard instructions on installing any new (or updated) app is to turn off ALL running programs and that actually includes the A/V. Scan it on download is enough, but turn it OFF before installing anything. Apart from it blocking some apps, A/V operation during install has been known to corrupt programs.
  9. What happens with Kaspersky is that it objects to (usua;lly) one of the bundled apps. It is well-known for false positives.
  10. That's not a bug in BC - it's a false positive from Kaspersky (not an uncommon happening with other apps)
  11. It's probably too late to help, but I back up my BC files regularly to another drive. Unfortunately, if they're gone, they're gone. You could try one of the file recovery apps, but I doubt if that would help
  12. 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
  13. Hello. I have a problem with download. "I may not download anything on your PC. Neither the steam may not to install anything and shall be allocated space very hard on the disc. What can I do about it? It is not because of the Internet. Fișierul poate fi mai mare decât spațiul liber pe unitatea hard disk. Efectuați un disc utilitarul de curățare (Puran Utiliies este un bun gratuit una) și să executați un disc verificați din Windows The file may be larger than the free space on your drive. Run a disk cleaning utility (Puran Utiliies is a good free one) and also run a disk check from Windows
  14. Nicve idea but impractical. Unfortunately sites come and go (usually when they get hit by a lawyer waving 'cease and desist' orders or by a court ordering an ISP to block them) . Any updating would have to be almost non-stop (and eat up a lot of bandwidth)
  15. Guys, I have tried repeatedly to reproduce the problem but so far I haven't seen it on this machine. I am able to edit the details (user name isn't editable in the client - only on the website) What I do know from other apps is that the following can cause problems: 1: Running A/V during installation 2: a corrupted download 3: corruption in the OS itself 4: a 'hacked' copy of Windows 10 (the 'activation' process interferes with some apps) for 1 and 2, a complete uninstall (using Revo Uninstaller), for 3, copy data files to a thumb drive, bite the bullet and 'format C:'. For 4 - there is no cure
  16. As I said, if this was a real bug, this thread would be full of 'me too's - it ISN'T.
  17. As I said, if it was a global bug, we would be swamped with reports of it - that's not happening. The latest release build btw is 1909 (released 10 days ago) Oh and you don't change your name in the client - you do that on the website
  18. If it was a 'bug' it would occur on a lot of computers, which doesn't appear to be happenimg (or the board would be swamped with 'me too' posts) It's almost certain that something in your setup causing it but I honestly don't know what it could be. As I said, A/V running during install was one possibility. Did you try completely removing the client (use Revo Uninstaller in moderate mode - there is a free functional 'trial' version) and maybe also run Puran Utilities (a free maintenance app) and then re-install, again, turn the A/V off during the install (use a fresh download in case the original is corrupted).
  19. Adaware A/V blocked the direct download for me, but downloading and installing from the .torrent worked (my BC download folder is on a separate drive with A/V scanning disabled on that). However I still don't have any problems running it even though I'm on the Fast Ring for W 10 betas (build 19028-1325)
  20. stop all transfers in the client - then try to uninstall. You could also try using Revo uninstall (free version)
  21. It's working fine for me. It's possible that your installation was corrupted in some way. Perhaps if you uninstall and re-install, turning your Anti-Virus OFF during the installation )A/Vs can do strange things to installations, which is why the standard recommendation on installing new apps is to turn off ALL running programs - and this includes the A/V). Of course, remember to turn it back on when you finish
  22. I would think that trying to run 20 simultaneous downloads would really slow down your transfer rates
