Default Vista x86/x64 TCP/IP patch

As you may have noticed Microsoft still limits your half-open (incomplete/syn packets) connection attempts per second that the system can make. Microsoft has done this since Windows XP Service Pack 2 to keep your computer from being used by dangerous programs such as worms that scan the internet to infect more systems and to keep your computer from being a host of a Bot that connects to IRC that accepts commands to launch Distributed Denial Of Service Attacks (DDoS) against other people and companies they do not like.

Unfortunately for us and companies, this limit effects our internet by limiting the capability of P2P (Peer 2 Peer) applications like µTorrent, BitTorrent, BitComet, Azureus, BitSpirit, eMule (eDonkey network), BearShare, Direct Connect, DC++, ApexDC++, or even P2PTV such as PPLive, PPStream, Sopcast, TVAnts, Peer to Peer, Web server, FTP, and many other applications we love to use but cannot take full advantage of. Basically, you will make uTorrent faster as well as all these other apps you need. So Speed up your Vista downloads, If you dont believe me try it and tell me what you think.

Default Re: Vista x86/x64 TCP/IP patch

Hmm... I wonder if this will help with the frequent "stopped" downloads I was getting in Vista. It seemed like 90% of the time my downloads in Firefox and IE would just stop randomly, usually before 10% complete.

Its part of the reason I've been back to XP for a while.

I don't understand why I never seem to have this problem unless I don't run enough torrents at once to notice it.
