      Adjust the firewall on the Vista computer. The firewall may be preventing the program from accessing the Internet. Click "Start" and then "Control Panel" and choose the "Internet Options" selection. Select the "Firewall Exceptions" option, then click "Browse" and select "FrostWire" and click "OK." Now when you access the program it connects to the Internet.

      Sign into your account with the correct password. If you type in the wrong password your FrostWire service does not log into the service network.
