    Hello, I received a mail warning me that i have been dowloading, and so a freind has told me to dowload HotSpot Shield to use when i dowload preventing them for spying on my ip or something like that ;)

    Anyways, i turn it on at dowload via utorrent or transmission but my downloads don't work, they stay at 0% on both.

    I have tried disconecting HotSpot Shield and my downloads work on both. So I am guessing that it is hotspot shiel that is creating this problem, I don't want to download anymore by taking the risk, so for know i cannot download. Has anyone got a solution ?

    Thak you in advance mac friends.
