    When I run it on my VPS, I get "CONTROL SOCKET EXCEPTION ERROR"

    I have windows server 2003 installed. Even when I reset all the settings to defualt I get the same error.

    It occurs in the fast poster with 50 threads, 100 threads and any thread number. Even the default number.

    I have been getting this error in the fast poster for almost a month now. even at 100 threads. I used to run 100 threads from my 1mbps connection. Now SB is on windows 2003 and with 100mbps so runnnig 300 thread is no big deal. It does not crash though, I have to click the OK button and it continues, for now I have made a small software to automate clicking OK when it occurs but it kills the SB commenting speed. Without it it post to 1000 blogs within 1 minute, with it it has posted only 60000 in 6 hours :-(

    Please share with me any info that you can on this thing. I am in desperate need of help :(


    P.S : I've tried contacting support but could not get a solution. Although good, the support is not of much help right now. I understand that it is hard for them to know the problem so i am in no way blaming the support, THEY ARE AWESOME. Its just that someone who has gone through the same thing would now better

    1000 per minute = 6 (hrs) X 60 (Minutes) = 360 Minutes

    360 X 1000 = 360,000

    Now does it sound less :D

    I bought a VPS just to run SB. My 1mbps connection wasn't doing justice to this beast

    Can you please look into this Sweetfunny or just tell us please which settings to apply? I have the same problem too, virgin, legit win 7, no other applications even running, 32gb ram, dedicated, etc, etc. private proxies. And a hint: if i open the taskbar (just the small arrow on the bottom right) i see like 10-15 scrapebox mini icons. Maybe it opens up in the background too many times? Thank you in the name of everyone!
