Since reinstalling my OS the same as I had prior Vuze simply disconnects. Its not every time though. I have changed firewall settings, took the protection of my PC, tried different torrents uninstalling, reinstalling and upgrading everything I can think of. Any advice please??
This is almost always a firewall issue or a security suite issue or similar. Did you install something like peer guardian? Maybe a new anti-virus/security suite? Both of those can often create problems with torrenting.
When you say vuze disconnects what exactly do you mean? Do you mean it crashes? Do you mean that individual torrents are not seeding/leeching? What?
Also there seems to be a typo in your post. What do you mean by "took the protection of my PC"?

Wow this is like the fourth time in last few days I have had to make this post. I really should try to memorize the exact port range LOL.
The range I recomend is 50,000 to 60,000. The exact range is a little bit larger than that but I can not remember it without looking it up . . . but that range will do.
I would suggest that if IDM is causing problems to completely disable it (noting that it could take removing it from your computer to completely disable it) and see what happens.
I have heard many stories of various download managers causing problems like this . . . but I think this might make the 3rd one in the last 5 years or so. I am honestly surprised that people are still using them. They have been well known for years to cause problems; so, as I said most folks stopped using them years ago. Seriously with torrenting using a product like IDM is very very very very much NOT recommended. It really is not going to do anything. Those things only work well for uncompressed data . . . like text files for example. Most torrent data is already well compressed (i.e. movies are in avi or mp4, applications are in binary, etc etc etc) so really that is not a useful feature for downloading torrents. The whole resume interrupted downloads things is already built into the torrent protocol. So really it is not recommended.
