I just purchased a new laptop with Windows Vista preinstalled, and I have a problem with using p2p programs like bittorrent or limewire on it. Whenever I use those programs my internet completely times out (I can't browse, use instant messenger, or anything), and most of the time the p2p programs dont even download at all.
I did some research, and I've narrowed the problem down to Vista's limit of 10 half-open connections, so I tried installing the auto patch that raises the limit, and it doesn't seem to have helped. Yet my old computer with Windows XP SP2 downloads perfectly fine.
Any help is appreciated.
