  1. If you have queued items, (files waiting to upload or download) there will be some activity as the contacts to the trackers will show as upload
  2. Print Screen just copies the screen dump to the clipboard. You need to open a graphics program (even the bundled 'Paint' app in W 10) and 'paste' it in there
  3. If it's just to access a blocked website, you could try the 'anonymox' plugin for firefox. Asi I said, this is for a website only as it severely limits the amount of data you can download. Opera also has a built in VPN but, again, website only. When it comes to the actual downloading of files via a torrent, your IP can be traced and reported to your ISP. If you use a VPN, all that your ISP will know is that you have been online and there has been data transfer but not what has been transferred. It's the 'watchers' who look to see who is downloading movies, etc and they report the IP number to the relevant ISP saying what and when that IP number had been sharing files. If they see an IP number that is geographically situated elsewhere, then that's where the report goes/
  4. Most free VPNs will only let you have a very limited download where a paid one is normally uinrestricted. If it's just for browsing 'blocked' torrent sites, then a free one is fine - however, if your ISP is tracking yuor downloads and reporting back to one of the copyright chasing firms, then you need a pay up front one,
  5. Nobody here can help really - we don't have access to the servers or the database. All I can suggest is that you douple check yourlog-in and password
  6. It may be a hidden file. In drive properties, select to show hidden files. Then go to \Users\<yourname>\appdata and it may be either in Local or Roaming
  7. Check that you are showing an open port and DHT connected - two green icons at bottom right. If the port isn't open you will need to set that via the router and bitcomet
  8. You need a fixed intranet IP (that's the internal network, usually 192.168.###.1 for the router). Set your IP innetwork properties to the same block but with a different final number ),1 is normally the router). In the router settings, allocate a port number and set that to the IP number of the computer. Open Bitcomet and set the port number to match the one you just set up in the router (you can, if you like, set up a block of ports - like 12345 - 12356) but whatever port is open on the router MUST be matched by the port number in Bitcomet
  9. Different downloads have different trackers - it's not possible to have separate columns for all your downloads. I still don't see your point though - the 'trackers' tab will show for each individual download if that's the selected one. Click on the next one and you will see the status for that one and so on
  10. You may have a corrupt download. Did you try going to the folder and copy/paste thje file elsewhere and see if it opens there? I did notice you are using BC 1.35 - the current version is 1.55 (probably has no bearing but just thought I'd point that out)
  11. If you right click on the menu bar in the lower window you can add a 'trackers' tab which will tell you if the tracker connects and, if so, how many seeds/peers it has listed. That's about all the 'status' you'd need really
  12. That's not a BitComet error. Presuming you're using Windows, I'd uninstall mcrypt as that doesn't install properly most times. mcrypt is often installed along with xampp or apache. Che ck for anything that you recently installed to see what nay have importewd it
  13. It will still go for the missing parts first - irrespective of the number of seeders.
  14. You also need to set Options > tasks to 'optimize download strategy for preview' However it's not guaranteed. If there are a lot of leechers and only a couple of seeds, the download will concentrate on parts which no-one else has.
  15. One possible reason is lack of free space on the drive. While it may appear that there is, there are times when lost clusters actually reduce the space, even though drive properties show that there is more. Run chkdsk and defrag the drive and see if that helps
  16. Make sure that your router is NOT using DHCP - set the computer IP address manually (in the same block as that on the router). Set the ports there to allow on a block of ports and then configure BC to use those ports
  17. I wouldn't worry about the port mapping - mine 'fails' if I run a VPN but works if I don't (it doesn't seem to make any difference to operation) Upload speed - there are two possible reasons here: first (and most obvious) is that nobody is downloading from you. The other would be that your total bandwidth is tied up with long termn seeding. Try reducing that to, say, 100 KB/s.
  18. Never EVER post your ip address online (it leaves you wide open to an attack) Regarding the upload, the figure you gave us typical of a probe of trackers for seeds/peers - your upload, however, seems to be high in the long term seeding and it's possible that has reduced your bandwidth for 'ordinary' uploads
  19. Please don't ask the same question more than once
  20. Usually if you log in from BitComet ('Forum') at the top menu, it will open in your default language. You can also log in by using http://bitcomet.com/en
  21. There's no way to find out what anyone seeding a torrent has on their hard drive (it would be a bad security risk to allow a complete stranger to have access).
  22. All I can think of now is to re-run the .torrent files and open them with BC - and set the folder to wherever you have it and then start. It's not a problem I've ever had to be honest, so it's sort of guess work on my end
  23. Double check the folders - right click on any download and look in 'properties' It's possible that there is a different folder name
  24. Please do NOT post links in this forum. If you are worried about malware, run a scan on the file
  25. I would like to think things have improved in the TWELVE YEARS since the last post
