Ares Filters . . .

by pearljamkornfan / November 8, 2004 6:53 AM PST

I am running Win XP Home SP2, 3.0 GHz P4, 1 GB DDR Ram. Running on schools ethernet. Out of the blue, my ARES galaxy filters software searches. My roommate is still allowed to do them. I went through all the filter files in the ares program folder and even uninstalled, then reinstalled it. I used to be able to DL through it. I'm guessing it is a registry entry or DLL file planted somewhere that won't allow this, but does anyone know how to get rid of this?

Call your school IT staff and see if they are blocking P2P softwares.

Haha thanks Bob, you tryin to get me busted? lol just kidding. I figured it out, uninstalled ares, then went through the registry and deleted any key related to Ares. I then reinstalled it, and Bam. Ares is the only on that works at our school for now. I can DL anything else. It was just software. I got that done now, so thanks for your time. I will now continue to download friends' freeware . . .

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
