Not finishing downloads- file with randomized file names
« on: June 20, 2017, 01:20:13 AM »
Program hangs when downloading a NZB with randomized file names. Gets down to 1 or 2 download threads still showing as connected, but program just hangs and will not finish download. Downloaded same NZB with different program, but same server settings, without a problem. Even rolled back Alt.Binz to previous version but same problem

Tried on another machine, duplicated settings, worked properly, so it must be a fault with the computer itself

Update on this. Removed all Alt.binz files, cleaned the registry of alt.binz related keys, did a clean install of the program. No errors since the 26th of June

Error started again. Random now. Cleaned and installed fresh copies of Alt binz, winrar, Quick par. Any ideas on what else i can refresh on my machine that alt binz uses? short of a reinstall of OS it seems to be something outside those programs affecting it

Do you use AVG by any chance?

I believe I might have a related issue - but I've never noticed the hang/thread issue mentioned in your last post.
https://www.altbinz.net/forum/requests/handle-obfuscated-rarpar2-files-better/

I should note that I use the build in win10 antivirus, HOWEVER I do have AVAST pro installed - it is running in what it calls "PASSIVE MODE"  (Settings >Troubleshooting) which means no realtime scanning of any type and I never had the firewall component installed.  I even have the "Self-defence module" disabled.  I just use it for on-demand scanning, so I kind of doubt my issue is due to AVAST.
