Have you ever downloaded any thing with LeechGet?
When you click on some thing to down load it when the LeechGet screen comes up what happens if you click use explorer which is on the left of the o.k button. Does it download ??.
Some where some thing must be blocking LeechGet from working it could be some box ticked some where that should'nt be.
usually it is the firewall or a pop up stopper or some thing like that .

Try this Open leechget and on the second menu bar click on the arrow on the right of the leechget icon which is the orange box directly under file then click start wizard copy this url " http://www.acesoft.net/wssetup.exe"without the quotes in the box and click paste from clipboard
then click next and see if it starts the download.
Also you can check your settings by clicking on Extra on the top menu bar and clicking options and going thru the settings on the left pane . at the bottom are two up and down arrows to select different options

Just a thought you have'nt got it set in sleep mode have you. ??
on the second menu bar about the sixth icon in hover your mouse over it to see what the names of the icons are if it is on it will be highlighted,click it to turn it off
if it is not there on the second menu bar go to the top menu bar and click on Extra sleep is the top button . then try to start a download.

What happens when you try to download with leechget?

Norton System works as far as i know does not have a Firewall, i have the 2k3Pro version though.

If you mean Norton System Works or Norton Firewall then go into the program and change its configuration options to allow the program.

But thats assuming it wont connect and has been blocked by the firewall, It's not explained where the problem is
