Music download problem

By pandpdisco ·
Using Win XP. Having difficulty using 3 different softwares for music file swapping. My internet is working fine (DSL); however when I try to connect to WinMX, Shareaza or won't connect. The Firewall 'appears' to be turned off (maybe someone could advise if I have done this properly?) and it is not blocked at the Provider's Firewall. The programs were working fine for 2 weeks but just stopped working for some unknown reason! If anyone knows even one of these softwares well or has seen it before PLEASE let me know. I can send further details to you if necessary.
Thx in advance!

You can do 1 of 2 things. #1 download the latest version of each of them programs. #2 stop useing them because people are starting to get in trouble for useing them.

I use to use Kazaa lite and a few weeks ago it stopped working because someone is starting to disable them programs. Sorry there is nothing you can do anymore for downloading free music. Just pay $.99 per song and legally do. Also you might want to reinstall Kazaa because if you ran spybot or award and deleted the spyware programs that came with kazaa it will have disabled it.

Anyways Just pay for the music its not worth downloading for free anymore.

Hi there

If you have any anti-virus installed on your Pc,try uninstalling it,reboot and then check 2 see if you connect,also under TOOLS,INTERNET OPTIONS,CONNECTIONS,LAN SETTINGS,check 2 see if your proxy has been enabled also try this,click on START,RUN (type in "msconfig"),disable all startup items and then try.

If this does not work,uninstall the p2p programs,go to and download them again.(do not use the same username,change it)
