Simplest solution would probably be to try uninstalling Ares and re-installing. Before you do, try closing Ares and deleting any of the incomplete download files (the files beginning with '___ARESTRA___'). That should cure the non-cancelling download. If it still won't download anything after re-installing, check your firewall settings to make sure it's not being blocked.

That depends. Which software firewall are you using? And do you have a router with a hardware firewall?

Ares 2.xx puts a Folder in Application Data where 1.9x did not.
Un-install..Ares un-hide Hidden Folders...go to..Documents & Settings/User/Local Settings/Application Data...and delete the Ares Folder. Re-install Ares. Should be fixed. ;)

i am facing trouble with ares download.... whenever i start the software it shows connecting but remains in the same state....
after starting the softwares the files being downloaded shows some seeds (around 50-60) but slowly these number decreases and finally becomes zero...i formatted my pc and re-installed the software but still the same problem!!! (well, i made a backup of the ares folder of the "c:\documents and settings\my documents........") . all my downloads are almost finished (90-95%) but now it's stuck for around 5-6 days.... before, everything was going good but now this problem.... and also i would like to add one thing... after starting the software if i press "check connection" it shows "test successful" but after some time when the number of peer starts decreasing at that time it shows "test failed".......!! please make a reply as soon as possible.... :roll:

Sounds like a problem with your ISP .... possibly blocking/restricting file-sharing.

You could try using a VPN service to bypass any restrictions, at least as a temporary measure to diagnose the problem.
