I have had bitcoin for a little bit now. It has been going very smoothly. I have set up 3 accounts for various activities, privacy, and security reasons. I now can not get all of the block chain. When I go to download more of the block chain it just sits at 175408. I have been at it for hours. When I first got bitcoin it worked perfectly, but now even after reinstalling the bas** it is still stuck there, and my total connections went from eight to a one. If anybody has any suggestions on to what the problem could be I would be grateful.

  • Accounts? What do you mean by "accounts". If you are referring to Windows user accounts, and each one has a copy of the blockchain, are you running out of disk space then maybe? May 13, 2012 at 22:35
  • What o/s, o/s versioin, and Bitcoin client version? May 13, 2012 at 22:37

Maybe the client is having a hard time finding peers. If you close it and remove the addr.dat then restart, it will go through the dnsseed process again.
