Ok, so me too, like others, have the same problem of Frostwire freezing after 31%!! I've tried everything that is suggested in most of the replies but i still get the same problem. I checked my Windows FireWall (and did as suggested) and checked my anti virus (K9), installed and uninstalled FrostWire AND Java, installed FrostWire uner a different name etc. But no luck. One thing i'm not sure about though - you suggested to change the ISP.. but I couldn't work out how to do so?!? I don't have the option you mentiones - tools>options>advanced>firewall
Please Please help!!!
My OS BTW is windows XP. never had a problem with Frostwire untill i've upgraded from version 5.3.2 upto 5.3.3.

I had the same problem. Running FW from the .bat file really helped the 31% stall. I ain't seen hide nor hare of it doing that. However, it does seem really slow at 69%/
bagan99 wrote:yes, i know the current version is 5.3.6 and i DID get it off the official website of FrostWire. the issue is that i can't get into the program since it freezes at 31%, remember, like many others who posted their concern, so i can't go into tools!! i've mentioned that i never had any problems while running 5.3.2 version - it only started after FrostWire prompted me to upgrade to the next version (5.3.3 at the time) but now i have the latest - only i can't use it.
very happy for everyone who did manage to fix it on their pc but doesn't seem to work for me..

That could be a technique worth trying!

i've done everything as you said AND in the correct order, uninstalled using Revo, I have the latest Java and have re-installed FW 5.3.6.
I DID get the following error message - "D:\DOCUME~1\Shahar|LOCAL~1\Temp\ApnStub.exe
the NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. CS:0571 IP:0238 OP:63 73 73 22 20 choose 'close' to terminate the application."
i clicked 'close' and FW continued successfully without any further issues. BUT... it still gets stuck on 31%.
I use router at home but i've disabled the firewall AND the UPnP is enebaled. my Windows firewall doesn't mention FW and my antivirus - K9 - is set to allow FW.
i'm using the same PC with the same Windows XP that i've used before all the problems strated (up to version 5.3.2)
my internet connection is cable and i don't use a proxy.
nothing really changed from before to now except for updating FW a while back when it prompted me to..
