      It's easy to stop it using your PC to share stuff. Simply move the movies out of the KService folder and delete the movie from Sky by broadband.

      The reult is you have the movie downloaded and playable (until it expires) but your PC isn't used for sharing as the software believes you have no movies to share.

      The Konaki Service it uses is absolute rubbish! Once installed its was at first very hard to install and was always hogging bandwidth!

      Works a treat on my setup, use netlimiter to control the speed it has available, then as above, once downloaded move the film somewhere else and delete it from the library. Pulled down 5 films last night while asleep.
      Sky are also providing a program that they say will remove all traces of the software if you dont like it, at the moment i'm loving it, its just as good as using a torrent to download a film
      each to there own though

      That KService.exe program also for some reason slowed up my computer when I briefly installed it. I quickly removed it and never had any more problems. It is a good idea and even if I did as suggested above I am still not happy have this program on my computer.

      Its good for getting those classic movies - My Cousin Vinny! but for others [not reccomended - as illegal] torrents are still around!
