I had to format may hard drive so I lost all my info and programs. I downloaded ares ultra again and logged on, but now when I download music or movies the download speeds are so slow it's like watching paint dry. I used to achieve download speeds in excess of 300bps no i'm lucky if I get 3bps. Anyone out there know what might have happened :? :?

ares ultra? Is that the stupid pay version of ares, or some clone?
Either way 300bytes per second is slow. In fact that was slow a decade ago... I think you mean Kilobytes. :lol:

Couldnt find an official website for it, but did find this on a download site:
This download may include additional applications bundled with the software's installer file. Third-party applications bundled with this download may record your surfing habits, deliver advertising, collect private information, or modify your system settings. Pay close attention to the end user license agreement and installation options.

Yea no surprise. Its also a "free trial", so i guess they just plant loads of spyware on your PC then say your trial has ended and try to get even more out of you.

Dont download them from a website, you download from a network. Try Emule.

There is no way to get your money back since you got scammed, i dont think the bastards who did it give a shit about you.
