If that P2P is being used to download copyrighted or pirated files, then the only suggestion you will hear from us is to uninstall it.
We cannot discuss P2P related problems in these forums.
I've been using Ares, the P2P, on Windows Vista Home Premium for about a year. I don't know if its related or just a coincidence but I just recently downloaded Vista SP2. Now Ares starts and opens and searches ok, but every time when I try to click on a track to play it, Ares crashes and freezes and I need to open Task Manager to close program / end process.
A work around for playing tracks is to locate the files and move the files into Real Player, where they play fine. But I'd like to get Ares working again.
I looked for updates on the Ares page and low and behold their headline is all about problems caused by Vista security. They offer an Ares 2009 upgrade solution, which I installed and ran. But it makes no difference at all.
I'm using a feeble laptop and am occupying about 62% of my 87.7 GB hard drive. I have 2GB RAM and a 32-bit operating system. I have a 1.66 GHz Intel Core 2CPU.
