Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


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.

Bearshare lite 5.2.5. was suggested through 'read this' link above. Now when i go open it the user account control asks me first if i will allow the 'unidentified program' to run, i allow but as said it wont connect to network.
thought i had it but obviously not..

well, every once in a while I get that message....but that's only been when my system was clogged down with other activities or needed defragmentation....so I would suggest doing a defrag on your machine (should be done monthly at least)...

again, I would NOT trust some site to have the appropriate .dll file (at least not having had a trojan added in)....ever stop to think that perhaps some malicious file is being spread which deletes the driver, which forces you to search and find a replacement (which is being provided by the dillholes who made the malicious software)????

as far as connecting...just let it keep trying...eventually you will get connected to a host...read the thread I linked to in its entirety and you will get some good tips on how to set up and run the expired beta....and remember, always use PeerGuardian2 when using any p2p program....

Here is how to fix the problem with the missing BSidle.DLL file.

Go to a search engine and search BSidle.dll

Download the driver from one of the search engine results.

Save the downloaded dll file to your desktop, then move it to Program Files/Bearshare.

Bearshare should now open.

angel how did you get past the dll error?

peerless - i am trying to tell you that about 8 months ago i was running the version of bearshare provided by your link in this thread as well as the bearshare has been sabotoged thread. it was working fine until a couple days ago and that error about the file "bsidle.dll" came up and since then i cannot use bearshare. i ran a search through my c drive for the "bsidle.dll" file and there were no results. you don't know how this could have happened? I deleted the version provided on the sabotoged thread and re-installed it and it still won't work. please help if you can.

Thank you so much peerless. I used your link and disabled a certain part of my MacAfee and it worked. It was a little tricky at first but it worked.
My last question is about preventing viruses while the part of MacAfee is disabled. Are there any files I should not download while I'm searching through bearshare? I don't want to get a virus, but you obviously need to have that one part disabled from MacAfee. Any advice on that? Also when I re-installed bearshare again and it finally worked I was prompted to block files with certain codes. Are there any that I should have blocked?

the above poster gives wise advice re:bitzi...

you haven't said (or I missed it) what part of McAfee is disabled....

if you are simply allowing certain actions by BearShare and BS only, then that is fine..one has to do the same with any firewall to allow traffic with a p2p program...if you are referring to the .dll file in specific, you should be able to put that file on the accepted list for your Anti Virus

I think I went under computers and files (in MacAfee) and disabled the first option. Im not sure exactly which option it was, I can't tell because I'm on my work computer now and it is a different version of MacAfee here.

Every time I tried to unzip the file you gave me it wouldn't work because MacAfee kept quarantining the dll file. So i disabled (the section stated above) and restored the dll file and I was finally able to use my bearshare.

Do you know how to move the dll file into the list of accepted files?

Thanks again.
