When I use torrent download sites such as KickassTorrents all the text appears in gobblygook as though it hasnt deciphered it similar to reading some files using Adobe.I never had this problem with Win7 or iMac. What is happening to cause this and what can I do to stop it?

Just tried it as I use the it and you are quite correct, I found that when I minimized IE and found that Windows firewall was looking for permission. Clicked allow and all is OK now.
