      Unhappy T0rrents search blocked...

      Hi all ...

      Got a very strange one here , since thursday I cannot do anything regarding t0rrents, this includes download t0rrents and even if i type "t0rrent" into the google search bar i get the error page "Connection Interrupted, The document contains no data." I thought this was due to the microsoft patches which came through thursday evening but I have tried this on my ps3 as well and the exact same thing happens ,

      I even had to use zeros instead of o for the word t0rrent or this post would give me that error


      Anyone had this or have any clue what this could be ?



      Thanks in advance
      D

      Do you download a lot of data?
      having just googled "Connection Interrupted" i came across a reply that says "a service provider may cause a disconnect if you are exceeding allocated resources" this would be a first if sky are now using FUPs, not even sure if sky can do this... very strange

      i am downloading as i type this using bitlord

      no problems what so ever google search torrents no problem, have a look at your firewall settings this could be blocking the ports, i had problems with firewall and azureus last year so went to bitlord

      It could be that you have been unfortunate enough to have picked up some form of malware or virus, if you havent been able to even type the word torrent. Try running your virus protection programme

      Webcry Removal Guide - Computer Repair Info

      worth a try maybe i had this virus took me ages to get rid of the damm thing


      DESCRIPTION

      Webcry is a search engine hijacker that redirects your web browser when a search engine results are clicked on a search engines web site such as Yahoo or Google. Webcry is loaded onto your system through a Trojan or a downloaded video codec.

      Webcry may redirect a user to a blank web page or an ad may appear with Webcry in the address field. The Trojan that loads Webcry may redirect users to websites like Webcry.com that advertise rogue anti-spyware programs.

      Thumbs down Re: T0rrents search blocked...

      Hmm will give this a try but I am leaning more towards the Sky blocking me story as I tried browsing through my playstation 3 browser, which as far as i know cannot get a virus and same thing
