Yo fellow OSNNians, I was recently greeted with a weird problem concerning specific P2P programs I use and them seemingly locking my net access. I wanted to download a few game demos through Azureus (a Java based bittorrent client) and eDonkey2000, but after like about 10 minutes, downloading/uploading comes to a halt. Both programs "state" that I still have sources, but nothing is coming through. I then decide to launch IE to see if the net still actually works or whether it was an outage or something, but the window stares at me blankly with the words "Detecting proxy settings" stuck to the status bar. So far the only solution is a hard reset, because even the Start/Shutdown/Restart doesn't work, which is weird. I recently scanned my computer for virii using NAV2003 with latest definitions... nothing, and ran Spybot and Adaware, with nothing but a few small tracking cookies and stuff. I also ran HijackThis and I looked over the list, but nothing out of the ordinary seemed to appear. If you want, I can post my HijackThis log later. I really have no idea what's going on. It was working a few weeks ago... but yeh. Can anyone shed some light on the situation? Thanks.
