BitLord used to work, and now doesn't.

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I tried searching all over for someone with the same issue with no luck.
I have a Windows XP desktop computer, and for the past few years I've used BitLord 1.1 to download torrents with absolutely no problems. Recently I tried to open BitLord to download something, and the download speed stayed at 0kb/s, and occasionally went as high as 1 kb/s. Normally I'd have speeds up to 100+ Kb/s. The seeds were very high, it was not a dead torrent and I tried several other torrents and the same thing happened. I uninstalled and reinstalled with no luck. Is there any reason why all of a sudden BitLord would just stop working for me? Is there something I can do to fix this?
Please help.

No.

I just download music.

No.

I'm positive it isn't copyrighted. I have friends who can download the exact same torrent on BitLord without a problem.

Name that tune ...

and "artist" and we will check it out.

Without some REAL SPECIFICS it is kind of like "I've had this Ford for years and it always moved real fast but now after I start it it just sits there." - NUMEROUS potential causes unless narrowed down by specifics.

I don't know how else to narrow it down.

Well it isn't one specific torrent doing it. It's every single music torrent I try to download. I'm not doing anything different. I get my torrents from Demonoid, as always (and yes, I have a username on there), and the download speeds will not go higher than 1kb/s even when they have a numerous amount of seeders. As I've said, this happened for no apparent reason and my friend who also uses Demonoid and BitLord can download the same torrents with no problems. I can't be any more specific, because it isn't just one torrent giving me the problems. I don't know what could have caused BitLord to do this because I haven't changed any settings or anything of the sort.

If You Can't Tell Us The Name Of The Song And Artist

...then we'll need to say, we're sorry, you're asking a question which violates the Forum Policies. The discussion of ways to promote the illegal download of music or movies is prohibited. Since "almost all" music downloads from P2P software are commercial songs protected by the recording company's copyright, these forums don't condone such.
