Im using a telecentros PC at the town hall, but the bu*ger is when you try to download any program, such as bittorrent, you have to have administrator thingys, which i do not. Is there a way of downloading bittorrent which will avoid the filter?? Once its downloaded you can use it freely, i even sometimes have problems download google earth. Any ideas to avoid the block?? I only want to download the black eyed peas new song. Yes, yes, filesharing is bad but we all do it. I have only ever bought 1 CD in my life anyway, i never buy CD´s.

You can only have administrator privileges if you know the username and password and I'm sure that your Town Hall would not be very happy if you downloaded your file sharing program on their network. So unfortunately, you'll have to either buy it or do it at home. :)

Why not introduce a password to the BIOS on start-up: that'll teach 'em.

Albeit I agree with what's been said. I mean the town hall is not exactly your own space (for downloading nefarious things) is it?

Have Fun,

Mark.

Got Bittorrent working now, entered the setup menu (Bios) upon startup, and put the PC to safe mode to get it to start without the telecentros program, i also installed a anti virus program to be on the safe side! All works fine now with bittorrent. And besides, what the town hall doesnt know wont hurt them!:) In spain, downloading music isnt technically illigal, yet.
