    OK, Samuria, I'll try asa I can
    But did you read my first post : "This happened after desinstalling Bittorrent which was bugging."
    All had been working fine previously, but for bittorrent....
    You don't believe in malware or virus ?

    OK, had to go to an "how to ?" from which I guess these are the commands I should enter : ???

    netsh> interface ipv4 set dns "Ethernet"=”Ethernet” static 1.1.1.1

    netsh> interface ipv4 set dns "Ethernet"=”Ethernet” static 1.0.0.1 index=2.

    And RETURN after each ?

    I'd be very grateful if you could confirm, things are bad enough, I don't particularly wish to make them worse by using wrong commands !
    I hate to admit it but.... I don't understand everything I have been doing here

    That will work but its simpler to do it on the tab in network card properties How to change DNS settings on your PC running Windows 10 | Windows Central

    I also uninstalled Avast and completed with avastclear

    Unfortunately it did not work...

    What limit did you use for the number of connections? It might have caused DNS flood and even though you have uninstalled the client, IPs are still trying to connect to your PC and the router, ISP or Windows might have blocked PC temporarily for DDoS protection. Restarting the router might help.

    Hi TairikuOkami, thanks for your post
    I restarted the router, did not change anything
    But if the router were in cause, could I connect through it with my laptop and phones ?
    Pardon me if the question is stupid, but I'm far from knowledgeable in computers

    As for the number of connections limit, I never touched the default and I had only 5 torrents to download - they all stalled...

    Rizone.soft, very wisely advises to skip any option which one does not understand... I can’t overlook this advice

    I really appreciate that you all try to help !

    What to post or not to post ?
    I noticed on some threads on the site that most people blank out certain infos when they post results or logs
    I guess it’s a protection measure, which tells me that it’s probably not wise to post everything on a public site
    But I have no clue about what is safe and what’s not !


    So when you say post... ?

    Nothing of your private info is in those files that FRST and other Farbar tools creates.

    I would start by removing "FreemakeUtils" with Revo uninstaller along with Avast, AtlasVPN,
