Hi, hope this is the right place to put this. Anyways, I have an xp computer, net book to be exact. Yesterday I started up a torrent through bit torrent, everything worked fine. I got home to day and my speed had dropped DRASTICALLY. I went to check on it, and it said the port was closed.

I tried switching up ports, and it said the same thing. Closed my firewall to no avail. Upon checking my ports, it says that none are open. This has cut my speed for anything to a snails pace. Can anyone offer some insight to the situation?

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/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.
