Can't search or use Vuze HD Network

All of a sudden, after restarting my computer, I'm unable to search for anything on Vuze or even open the Vuze HD Network tab. I know how it should work because it was previously working, but it doesn't even pretend it's loading. Nothing happens when I click the tab. I don't understand.

I've read threads of people that uninstall and then reinstall Vuze, but I want to know if I'm going to lose all of the torrents I have all ready and the seeding/uploading ratio I've been trying to raise. I know that sounds dumb, but i don't want to be one of those people that just leeches. A little help on both questions will be good.

You'll only lose the downloads if you delete the Application Data folder, something the uninstaller usually doesn't touch.

Thanks. I'll try reinstalling it and see if that helps.

Sorry about those two above posts...my computer was freakin out on me.

Nope. The uninstalling and reinstalling did not change anything. And i'm not entirely certain it even really uninstalled, because it saved all of my settings as they were before... So now i'm back where i started, not being able to search at all. Please help me out.

Well, you didn't want to lose them.

In any case, to start completely from scrach: AzureusWiki - Clean Install

If you have Vuze closed, you can just do the part where you delete (or move!) the configuration directory, and give Vuze a run. If you move it, you can restore most of the torrents afterwards (and remove just the settings).

Also, deleting your share ratio on the Vuze end won't change anything. It's just an indicator for the user's side, nothing else. Trackers keep their own.

Whew! Thank you very much. It took a while and a lot of experimenting with files, but i can search again. But I'm not really sure how to get my configurations and uploads/downloads back. Can you help me out with that one?

Take a copy of the current %appdata%\Azureus folder.
You'll want at least:

Folders:
active
plugins
shares

Files:
azureus.statistics (ratio)
downloads.config (list of downloads)
banips.config
filters.config (if you're using any torrent filters)
tables.config (column setup)

Make sure it continues to work with those. If it does, make a backup of your current azureus.config and copy over the old one. If it stops working afterwards, copy back the backup you just made. You'll need to re-set some of your settings.
