Why peers won't connect to finish download.

I would appreciate insight about why some torrents won't complete and suggestions on what to do.

I often have torrents that stall, even though peers seem to be available. I'm looking at a few right now. The first says Seeds: 0(5) and Peers: 1(4). My understanding is that this means there are 5 seeders who have the entire torrent, none of which are talking to me. And there are 4 leechers with part of the torrent and only 1 is talking to me.

Is this correct? If so, can I make this torrent active again? I can try pausing, restarting, checking, forcing, and restarting the program, none of which get it downloading again. Suggestions? (I'm using 64-bit Windows.)
