hey DJ_NIKAZ,

Do you have any kind of windows Firewall/ Zonealarm etc...? If yes, most probably thats the problem. Make sure they don't block the P2P software from accessing the internet (firewall settings). If you manage let me know please :tazz:

Alan :)

You have no firewalls, and you're using P2P programs? :) Not using a firewall is a sure fire way to get your machine severely infected...trust me on this. :tazz:

First, see if the Windows XP firewall is running. It's not the greatest, but it's better than none. Go to Start>Control Panel>Windows Firewall, and see if it's set to "on". If not, DO turn it on. At least your incoming traffic will be monitored.

You need to get a GOOD firewall. I personally use the free Zone Alarm one. It's easy to use, and I know many others around here who use it as well. You can get it HERE

For more information on keeping your computer safe, Read This Article

As already mentioned, we do not offer help with P2P programs here on this site. If you have a hardware or malware (virus) issue, please post in the appropriate forums, and we'll be happy to help. :)
