    help is appreciated if someone can tell me how to set up vista so programs can access the internet.

    I have turned the firewall off, have adjusted access permissions, have included access through the firewall.

    I can download, but when a program tries to access the internet it does not allow it.

    i can not use utorrent, coreftp, and I tried to register siteslammer but it can not connect.

    thanks in advance

    ps. I did get video converter registered, and get the popup to allow it to access verification of registration.

    That does'nt sound right to me, could it be your anti virus
    blocking the connections?

    I agree XP is better. The next time you get a problem like this, try to right click then click on run as administrator.
