Sure, delete Windows.

Are you refering to the new firewall that comes with XP Service Pack 2? That can be disabled if you wish, but it does not conflict with DC++ as far as I can tell.

Other possible answers are to remove SP2 or to disable the relevant service as well as the "remove windows" one. You'll have to be a bit more specific about what exactly you want to remove (and possibly why) in order to get a proper answer.

Which application do you use for downloading, have you tried other applications, have you tried other protocols et.c.
Everyone is supposed to download from the hubs, - I don´t know why, but I never do anymore.

I rather suspect that if you used an alternate browser, your problems would go away: FireFox or Opera would be fine choices.

it seems to only be when i try to download a *.rec file from freewebs it shows the file in text in internet explorer and a yellow bar apears just below my addresse bar saying "the file was restricted beacuase the content doesnt match its security information"

surely there must be a way to remove microsoft security centre

That sounds like the hardening of IE that happened in SP2 (for your own good). I also stand by my previous comment.
