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.
