  1. Requesting advice

    Their website might say that, but I am sure you will be able to get started without IE. I know a user on linux who uses verizon DSL without any issue. So I am sure without IE, you should be fine.
  2. Azureus Issues

    I tried chatting with the network support staff at the ISP. All of them are clueless and blame it on the router's inability to forward the port. I tried one more test. I connected by cable modem directly to the computer. I am still getting a blocked port message. So its not the router. I guess the ISP doesn't know how to make the change.
  3. Azureus Issues

    Hi Folks, I have a MOTOROLA CABLE MODEM and a NETGEAR wireless router. I have tried setting up the port forwarding for the wireless router. I still keep getting NAT Errors on my Azureus Client. I have installed Windows XP version 2002 with Service Pack2. The Azureus version is I am not able to configure the NAT. I keep getting NAT errors. This is causing the downloads to be very slow. My ISP Is cOMCAST and I do not have any access to any of the ports. None of the ports are open, even if I connect directly to the cable modem. The second issue that I am facing is that the downloads have stopped at 81%. The message I get now is "The process cannot access the file because its being used by another process. Open Fails" I also tried to get the rest of the torrent by downloading one more torrent client (muTorrent). Its giving me the same error message. I am at my wits end. Any guidance will be appreciated. Cheers.
  4. Microsoft vs GoogLE

    Google is the store for most information. It wouldn't be surprising to know that some google crawler has your credit card information stored on the server. Ditto to M$. How do you know that Microsoft isn't visiting your computer and gathering information? Ah we are getting paranoid over here.
  5. Microsoft vs GoogLE

    The MSN Desktop Search is equally cool. I think you should give it a whirl.

    Well if you happen to be in school, you really cannot afford expensive software. Just so much easier to download using p2p and all that. Now with the advent of free operating systems, people find it easier to use freeware.
