I have windows xp and have tried tried downloading three different p2ps (limewire, kazaa, shareaza) and none of them will fully connect to the internet. They each say that they detect a firewall. I have completely turned off windows firewall, and that did not help. I made sure that there was an exception for the programs, and that didn't work either.
Any help?

No help provided on P2P programs, though I will say by virtue of installing Kazaa you'll now have an infected computer that can be cleaned up in the Malware forums.

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to P2P file sharing programs. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselve legal, most things aquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/virii and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.

If you have any issues with this policy please PM a Moderator or Admin.
