My older sister is using this program called "Foxy" on another computer. It is a P2P program like Kazaa, Limewire, etc but it is in mandarin. My older sister can read mandarin because she lived in Taiwan for a while. I am on a sepparate computer. Everytime my sister uses "Foxy", My computer gets no internet. I cant even get onto Google.
My question is, Can someone post on their forums, or give me a program that can limit the bandwidth that her computer uses or how much bandwidth "Foxy" uses?
Heres the website: http://www.gofoxy.net/foxy/homepage/index.jsp

Note:I cannot uninstall it or disable it. I want to limit the bandwidth of the program or her computer. She is using a laptop and most of the time using wireless internet.
I have downloaded a program called NetLimiter PRO 2. It is the full version but only evaluation for 28 days. Can someone teach me to use this program or find another program that I can use that does the same?

Thanks a lot

If the programme is useless, why not delete it?

When you say you can't mess around with her settings, are you using a guest account?
Does the program show up in task manager?

You are doing a good job of confusing me. Do you want to delete the program, repair it, stop it from running or what?
Your first post led be to believe you were using the computer.
If neither one of you can read the language then like JGweed said, uninstall it. Does it show up in Add/ Remove?

k sorry my bad. I was typing up the answers and the question up late at night. Let me rewrite it a little.

My older sister is using this program called "Foxy" on another computer. It is a P2P program like Kazaa, Limewire, etc but it is in mandarin. My older sister can read mandarin because she lived in Taiwan for a while. I am on a sepparate computer. Everytime my sister uses "Foxy", My computer gets no internet. I cant even get onto Google.
My question is, Can someone post on their forums, or give me a program that can limit the bandwidth that her computer uses or how much bandwidth "Foxy" uses?
Heres the website: http://www.gofoxy.net/foxy/homepage/index.jsp

Note:I cannot uninstall it or disable it. I want to limit the bandwidth of the program or her computer. She is using a laptop and most of the time using wireless internet.
I have downloaded a program called NetLimiter PRO 2. It is the full version but only evaluation for 28 days. Can someone teach me to use this program or find another program that I can use that does the same?

EDIT: Changed first post.

You can not put anything on your computer that is going to throttle bandwidth on her computer unless she she shares an Internet connection with you that runs through your computer. Is that the case?

If you are both running through a router, then she is not connecting through your computer, and you can not install anything that is going to limit her bandwidth.

and you can not install anything that is going to limit her bandwidth.

I repeat what Groovicus stated above. No you cannot, in the current configuration, you describe, limit your sister's Foxy induced bandwidth use. Does that answer your question?

The only thing you can do is remove her connection from the router. By having her turn off her machine or her Foxy connection. Thats it. Nothing else in the current configuration of how you describe it will work.

I know that... sorry bad english again -.-

what i meant was: Does anyone know how to change the settings on the Foxy program so it uses less bandwidth? It may or may not have that setting but i cannot confirm this due to my language barriar. Does anyone know mandarin on this forum?
