      You haven't got the word torrents in the router config for blocked URLS / Sites?

      There is absolutely no logical reason why this should happen then.

      Yup I am with you there , I have researched this everywhere and there is nothing like this on the net. *sigh*

      Are there any Sky employees monitoring these forums? Maybe I could bounce the problem of them directly?

      What would happen if you was to cut/copy and paste the word torrent into google search?

      are you sure you've switched off every single bit of parental control, and security software?

      check the startup under msconfig to see if there's anything loading at startup that may be there that you've forgotten about.
