1) last night my vista update froze after about 18% of a security update and i had to use control alt delete to close the system down it told me that it had stopped responding. All other downloads from the net are still working, has anyone else had a similar problem if so whats the way to resolve it

2) How do i get programs like u torrent to work with vista I have tried to open the ports but i am unable to get it to work, I use to use azureous but that does not work either, it keeps telling me that the port is closed, any help greatly appreciated

Thanks

I would typically leave the updater running if possible. Sometimes it takes a little longer. Also, when it says "stopped responding", it isn't always so :D It sometimes says that when you try to "break" the operation.

Personally, I haven't had an issue with the updater. Heck, the only issue I've ever had has been with some games not liking it when I changed some settings. Shutting down and restarting the application (not my computer) resolved the issue, no problem :)

Utorrent should just... um... work.

Fire it up, grab a torrent, start the dl and you should be just peachy. If a port is closed, you can try forwarding ports through your router's configuration. Typically Utorrent will do everything for you. I've never had an issue with it.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
