    we have several computers on a wireless router high speed connection and the file sharing programs work fine on all the ones using xp but I wound up with a vista home premium os on my new( to me) computer and it will not run limewire at all, utorrent cannot get an open port on the router and ares opens and downloads for 3 minutes then locks the downloads but allows uploading just fine.
    if I close it and then try to open it again it will not open, task manager shows it running in processes but not in applications and it will not stop the process
    to open ares again I have to restart the computer
    this computer is running an amd 5000 dualcore with 2 gig ram and nvidia graphics on board
    360 gig hard drive with about 20% used
    any idea why this is happening?
    I believe it must be a setting in vista but haven't a clue where to look
    tried shutting down all security programs with the same results
    tearing my hair out:confused:http://images.techguy.org/smilies/confused.gif
    :confused:
