    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Please would you take a few moments to read this post. A message for all newcomers. Thanks.

    What are the problems you are having with the programme?

    When did your problems first start?

    Have you tried uninstalling, then re-installing the programme?

    In future, if you give a descriptive thread title to your problem, and as much background info as you can. You are more likely to receive replies to your question.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Well, the problem first started after i downloaded two songs. I logged off after that. Within the next day or two, I logged back on and that's where the problem started. As soon as the problem started, i uninstalled and reinstalled and it was doing the same thing.

    Sorry!!!! I completely forgot to tell you guys what the problem was! The problem is this: When i log on to WinMX, it gives me the green light to search and download. When i go to the search window and put in an artist and song and click search, it says it's searching for results, but it never pulls up any. The screen stays black, and it continues to search for results, never providing any. Could it be my internet connection?

    New info: I just tried to configure the settings on my WinMX system, and it said that my computer was unable to receive incoming TCP connections. Could this have anything to do with my problem? Can I change this?

    Are you using a firewall?

    I usually use Norton Personal Firewall, but the subscription is expired, so i disable it.

    your better off uninstall as some firewall and virus protection still run services when off.
    my opinion winmx is also putting trojans on your pc
    user has very little control.
    if you are into music dwnlods try a torrent downloader.
    I have had to xlean up a few pc's with this program on it

    What is a torrent downloader? How can i get one? This problem with WinMX is so frustrating!! My CD burner works great, but i can't download any songs to make my own mixes and things like that.

    If you are like I am and are lacking in the "technical skills" department, but at the same time, miss using WinMX, there is a quick, easy and free solution it is called MXPIE. There is no spyware or anything else bundled with it. For those a little more savvy and courageous, there is even a manual option.

    So come on back to WinMX, and download to your hearts content. Thanks to these updates, not even the power of the RIAA can stop a network.

    IF you have downloaded WinMX and still cannot connect, you can even get personalized realtime help. Just go to this link WinMX Channels Copy the Room name appropriate for your Language and paste it into your WinMX chat screen, then press the Join Button. This works on version 3.53 and up even if you are not connected. It allows you to join into chatrooms set up for you to get immediate help.

    Everything you need at the MXPIE Website Free and Spyware free.

    I have also found a site for Computer problem that is nice, prompt and VERY helpful. If there is a problem you need an answer to, they can help.

    Realtime help available for WinMX 3.53 users having trouble getting connected. Go to WinMX Channels.
