Is Usenet the generic term for newsgroups?

will give altbinz a go once I uninstall grabit.

grabit conflicts with kaspersky so wont use that anymore :thumbsup:

Thanks anyway Barney.

Solved

solved... good.

I was just going to say that I have never seen my cpu get to 100% because of grabit... Only problem I have is when I am trying to watch something from the harddrive while downloading... especially high def stuff seems to stutter... But apart from that grabit is good.

I give it 2 weeks before you get totally bored with the speed. I lasted a lot less :lol:

lol... I am not a heavy downloader but it will be good to be able to download highdef stuff 5x quicker...

I just hope they dont throttle the speeds like the currently do for me on 10mb...
