Hi.

I'm trying to run some peer-to-peer programs like Utorrents and eMule on my laptop (XP SP2) but whenever I run the programs, they just won't connect to the internet even though I'm still connected to the network.

I disabled every security programs on my laptop which are AVG, Sunbelt, and the windows' firewall, but still no results. The strange thing is that I can run these p2p programs on my desktop and I just don't understand why.

Can someone please guide me? I'm in your debt, thanks!!

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 themselves legal, most things acquired 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/viruses 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.
