Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Suspicious File

I'm running Bear Share Lite ver# 5.2.1 on Win XP
I've noticed in the "Downloads" section along with the files I'm searching for is a search in red font: BSInstall5.2.5.1.exe and it's searching
I've run my spyware programs and anti virus scans on it with no luck.
I searched it in Google and it seems suspicious.
I've deleted this item several times but it keeps reappearing. it's acting VERY much like a virus or trogen?
Please respond ASAP as I would hate to delete Bear Share but I will if the overall health of my computer is at stake?
Thanks ........ Dave

its just the auto update thing that version does occasionally...

skip that sucker....uninstall it, and install the beta version detailed here: BearShare has been sabotaged.

follow the intructions and use the bearstart utility to get it running..force it into UP mode, and rock on!

Thanks Peerless:
If it only does it occasionally, why has it been there everytime I've been there in the past 3 days and I've never seen it untill very recently?
I'm also sorry but I don't want anything to do with "beta' programs. I'll leave those to you EXPERTS
And I have no clue what "Bearstart" utility is.
BTW I have discovered that the previous version # 4.7.0.83 seems to be ok with the exception of the flashing UPDATE thing lol
I guess I'm a little paranoid and things like this bother me.
Thanks VERY much for your rapid reply tho .... Dave

I saw the same thing once (also for a period of time) when using the same version of lite...bugged me too....kept on killing it, it kept on coming back..I am pretty sure that BearShare spreads its updates via the network, so that is what you are seeing..an attempt to download it (which since that is also expired, is impossible..lol0

AaronWalkhouse guided me on the proper path, as it were, and advised the expired beta version...it works like a charm...

the following excerpt is from the Technutopia forums:

To keep running the BearShare 5.1.20 beta forever (it works well here), just download the attached little proggy BearStart and set your BearShare shortcut to point to that. It sets the system date back to July 1st, 2005, starts the last version of BearShare installed, and then puts the system date back to the date it was before after a few seconds.

No ini files or registry mods - completely standalone. No installation - just unzip and run.
It reads the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\gnufile\shell \open\command" set up by the BearShare install program to find what to run.

so...just download the beta version and the besrstart utility, and use it d00d..it really blows the socks offa other things....just go into the configuration menu and force UltraPeer mode, and you will ROCK!

to do what is described above (set your BearShare shortcut to point to that) is kinda a pain..what i do is just directly use the BearStart.exe...since you are using xp, right click on the BearStart.exe and choose 'pin to start menu' and from that point on just go to Start>BearStart.exe to run the beta version...its a final beta, and as noted, ROCKS

Peerless
I'm really not that adapt at using Bear. I'm very willing to learn any tips tho. I just don't want to take up so much of your time.
I have a fair knowledge of basic computer things JUST not this program.
I have no clue as to what you mean by: just go into the configuration menu and force UltraPeer mode, and you will ROCK!
I'll make a deal with you??? LOL
I'll try the new beta version if you send me a detailed tutorial of how to best configue it. I really do hope you have it handy so you can easily copy and paste it to me?
I appoligise for only coming here when I have a question or problem.
Thanks HUGE ....... Dave

heh..no, I do not have a detailed tutorial...just 'common' sense about how my internet connection works and what I can do with it, and a few years of experience using p2p programs which means I have learned the hard way of what I can/cannot do...

give me a sec, and I'll fire up BSbeta and examine how I have it set up for my 45KB/s upstream, 1.2MB/s downstream cable connection

firstly..I seriously advise installing and running PG2 when using any p2p app that uses a public network like gnutella..and also using a firewall and AV scanner that runs in the background..with those ground rules covered, proceed to using your p2p app....

in BS, there is the upper toolbar similar to all windoze applications...

you will see file, edit, view, SETUP, window, favorites, help on top

choose setup, and any of the given options...that will open up the setup menu, with its own little screen...

once there, start configuring your client for your use...

filling the the connection specs is not really necessary, but I do so for giggles anyways...

I have a high speed cable connection and I set the Network Interface to Broadband, and the Bandwidth Capacity to asymetric, 400Kbps (~45KB/s) out and 10000 Kbps (~1.2MB/s) in..I leave the port at default as I have no issues with my ISP blocking the default port...

the Downloads option is important to set up so that you get full use of your connection...I have mine set as follows: I get up to 50 files at one time (could probably go higher), with 50 sources per file (again, could probably go higher) with 999 connections total (maxed out)..the setting of your temp directory and downloads folder is of course personal preferance....


the Service option is where you will be able to force UltraPeer mode...this for me indeed increases my search horizon and # of results...

all other settings are typical of most p2p apps, and since you are a veteran of LW, should present no problems...

as a note, the choice of 'show file icons' does suck a bit of system resources to do so, but I think your system should deal with that nicely...

Thanks again ... Dave
