Re: stalled downloads

Virtually nothing. Do you have seeds? If there are no seeds it's then all you can do is wait until someone comes online who has more/all of the file you are looking for. Alternately, you can look for the same file at other trackers.

Re: About the newly released 4.3.9

Did you download it from here? It's a false positive. Did you download it elsewhere? well, why would you do that? If you can't accept that, find a different client.

Re: PUA:Win32/QBitTorrent!torrent

Did you download it from here? Then it's fine, a false positive. Did you download it somewhere else? Why would you do that?

using a VPN for the first time. . .

PIA VPN, I've forwarded the port. Is there anything else I need to do to optimize the connection? Noob question, I'm sorry, first time in decades of torrenting that I've used a VPN.

Re: Downloading Torrents Wont appear in torrent

Providing a lot more information would be helpful, as is learning how torrents work BEFORE you start downloading things. But, with the very limited amount of information you've given, try right clicking on the torrent in qbt and selecting "open destination folder" that's where your files s...

Re: Busted by ISP

If you are not willing to seed, don't use torrents. As cmatt said, if you are concerned about this happening in the future, use a VPN.

Re: Difference between Seeds and Peers

A seed is someone who has 100% of the file. A peer is someone who does not (yet) have 100% of the file. If you see something like 4(8) that means you are connected to 4 of the available 8 computers, either as a seed or a peer. If there are 0(0) seeds, it's very doubtful you'll be able to get 100% of...

Re: Share Ratio

Torrents work because people are giving back what the have taken. If people just grabbed what they wanted, and then stop the torrent, that torrent would die, and not be available for the next person. Your ratio is what percentage you have given back to others of what you have taken. For example, if ...

Re: my ip and others are revealed? is it bad?

Yes. BitTorrent works (all clients) by creating a direct connection between your IP address to someone else's IP address. Is this bad? Well, that's up to you. If it's a concern, use a seedbox.
