    Hey, kb123.
    I also tried to run Blubster and had the same problem you're having. In my situation I had installed Clean Blubster. The advice I got (from Sharedholder) was to uninstall Clean Blubster and install the regular Blubster client. Then I was told to clean the regular client myself with AdAware or Spybot. I did that and yes, Blubster then worked for me.

    I was also told that I could now uninstall the self-cleaned regular Blubster and then installing Clean Blubster would now work. When you uninstall the regular Blubster it leaves a folder called "Blubster Support" on your hard drive. Apparently the Clean Blubster needs something in that folder to work on some systems (probably just yours and mine&#33. I did not try to install the Clean Blubster so I do not know if this really works - I suspect that it does. Is it worth it? That will be your decision. Good luck.

    Thanks eyeirritant for replying I will certainly try your suggestion, surely someone else must have had this same problem.
    Thanks again

    After reading all the praise for Blubster how brilliant it's supposed to be I thought I would give it a try that's if it could be installed easily.

    @kb123: I don't really participate in this forum (my reply to you was my first post) other than to seek information (so, I guess that makes me one of them there leachers&#33. I, too, was attracted by all of Blubster's high praise. I know the frustration you went through after you had done what seemed to be a good install and then kept getting that damn "...encountered a problem..." message!

    I thought I'd post once more just to say that Blubster worked great the first night I was on it. But, you know, over the course of the next few days, it really wasn't much different than any other P2P program I've used. But I should add that my view is from a 56K perspective (you know...slow and not really able to "play with the big boys").

    What was different, however, was that my computer developed a few "quirks" that hadn't been around prior to installing Blubster. When I ran AdAware and Spybot to "clean" the Blubster client they found about 30 spyware items of various kinds.
    When I uninstalled Blubster (truthfully, I got sick of going backwards in qeues&#33 a folder called "Blubster Support" remained on my computer. I don't know a lot about computers but most programs I've used take everything away when I uninstall. All in all, I wasn't too keen on the Blubster experience.

    I tried Ares. It installed easily and it has been working for me.

    Most programs do leave something behind when you uninstall or add/remove, even if it's just in the registry.

    I too have just started using Ares and like the look of it. Gave up on Blubster as didn't think it worth the hassle.

    All great minds must think alike, I,ve been useing Warez myself since I had problems, works better than any other p2p I have tried. :beerchug:
