A couple weeks ago my g/f installed service pack 2 on her computer, and since then both Ares and BitComet have stopped working. They both worked fine before that, and she says it started as soon as she installed SP2. The Windows firewall is turned off and both programs are allowed in her other firewall. Both have been re-installed with newer versions and still don't work. AFAIK she hasn't done anything else that should have affected the programs. So, can SP2 have blocked those programs somehow? If not, what else could be causing it? thanks.
