  1. What may be happening in the event of a hard shuutdown is that the files aren't being written to the hard drive. In a normal exit/shutdown/restart, there's a delay as it closes down Bitcomet allowing it to write to the hard drive. In the event of a hard shut down, it doesn't get a chance to actually write the files, so they're 'lost'. I don't have any SSDs (but I do run 'insider skip ahead' which is not runnimng the early versions of the 'upgrade' due in the spring of 2019) but I have had problems where I've had to do a hard reset (hit the power or reset button) and that has 'lost' some downloads. However, a restart of the .torrent followed by a hash check will recover part of the files (obviously it won't get the chunks that were lost with the failure to save)
  2. 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. You could also try a 'high' num,ber for the port (your ISP may be blocking lower port numbers). I set mine to around 14,000 If that still doesn't work, try a fresh installation.
  3. You do realise that the original poster asked that four YEARS ago (and never returned)
  4. The OP is using 1.51 - 1.52 is now available. Which are you using (and the same things that Cassie said would also apply). One thing that can cause problems is the router itself - when did you last reboot that?
  5. For the very last time - what is being flagged as a trojan is the Installcore software. Bitcomet costs money to run - servers have to be paid for and, rather than charge people, additional software from Premieropinion is bundled with the installation in return for a donation. THAT is what is being flagged as a 'trojan'. This discussion is now closed.
  6. The alert isn't caused by a trojan - it's the option at the start to 'install extra software' that triggers it in some A/V programs. As I keep saying, it's a false positive. What actually started this off was someone dopwnloading from an external source (before the update was actually released). Personally I look on sites that can't spell with a very critical eye (the site in question claimed to be an 'achive')
  7. I've told you that it's NOT a trojan (and I presume you did download it from the BC site and NOT from the 'achive' that you were using). YOU are the only person reporting this - no-one else seems to have any problem. As I said, if you aren't happy with it, no-one is twisting your arm to use it.
  8. Believe what you choose - it's not a trojan but if that's what you want to believe, you're at liberty to use whatever client you wish. As for me, having been in electronics since the days when transistors came in two varieties, - white spot for RF and red spot for audio - and having worked with computers since 8 bit days, I'm quite happy with what I know.
  9. There is no trojan - you have a false positive, probably caused by the 'opt-in' on the second screen (which asks if you want to install additional software). You can accept or reject that - your choice. Now, having said that, running multiple A/V apps on the same computer is one of the WORST things that anyone can do - they clash with each other and also slow things down. Additionally, it's fine to scan software on a download, but always turn the A/V OFF when installing as it can cause problems with an installation. That's why 99% of all software states "Close all running applications" and 'all' means ALL. However, the caveat on downloading from external sites remains
  10. 1.52 is now available from the legitimate Bitcomet download site here. It will also download automatically if Bitcomet 1.51 is running and active. There is a fake version (with built in trojan also aound both as a .torrent file and on some websites). Do NOT attempt to download and install any version other than the one on the main Bitcomet webpage .
  11. You probably need to set up port forwarding to a fixed IP number. To do this you will need to go to network properties and set up a manual IP number in TCP/IP v4 (usually something like 192.168.0.### where ### is any number between 2 and 255, but it may also be 192.168.1.###). You will also need to set up manual DNS - you can get your ISP dns by typing ipconfig in a command prompt (this will also tell you the address of your router which wull let you know the first three numbers of the internal IP)
  12. Because it doesn't exist - it's a FAKE The latest version(even in the archive) is 1.51. When a new version is released, Bitcomet will start to download it automatically. I will say again - THERE IS NO v1.52
  13. One reason for two ports is that, if you use the emule plugin, it needs both. However, if you are using a VPN, that can operate on a completely different port - did you check to see if that's the case?
  14. It's hard to say but I usually set my ports at a high number (five figures) that aren't common or used for anything else. Did you try setting UDP and TCP to two different values?
  15. Some sites are offering 'Bitcomet 1.52'. Do NOT download or install this as it appears to be a trojan. The latest version of Bitcomet is 1.51 When 1.52 is released it will be announced here. In the mean time do NOT download from other sites or torrents
  16. Have you opened the poprt in your router and firewall?
  17. You could try setting 'Integration' in options to use your browser. However, unless the site that you are downloading from supports 'restart from point of break' that will not help. Making a .torrent file is for uploading and, unless there is a file with the same hash, you won't get anything.

    Christopher Robin

    Would this be why the movie 'Christopher Robin has been banned in China? ?
  19. Pick any downloaded file, right click and lok in 'properties'. That will show where the download folder is. However, the parameter BitComet options is looking for isn't where the downloaded file is (the program knows that) but the path to the A/V .exe file
  20. You need to kmnow the path to your antivirus program and set that in the options However, if you are downloading apps with keygens and/or 'cracks' the a/v will probably wipe them out
  21. It's a problem I haven't come across myself but I do have the downloads folder whitelisted in the anti-virus (it had a nasty habit of deleting some parts of a download if it thought they were 'suspicious') Are you exiting the program from the menu (the 'Exit' button or using the 'X'. The X doesn't actually close it - it just runs in the background
  22. Windows 10 Build 17134 is a beta version (and quite a bit behind current which is Build 17711). The current release of Windows 10 is the April Upgrade, (Build 1803). The previous release (Fall Creator) was Build 1709. It's hard to say if your problem is a bug in BitComet or the fact you are running it on a test version of the Operating System
  23. The Opera VPN will only work, surprisingly enough, in Opera. To the best of my knowledge, it can't work in an external app
