Earlier this week my computer blue screened on me, when I restarted and launched the bitcoin client it gave me an error about the database being corrupt. Using advice I read on this board, I removed all the files in my Bitcoin folder except wallet.dat and restarted the client. By the end of the night the client was stuck at block 120000 or so, just shy of the block containing my first transaction.


Thinking it was a fluke I cleared the folder again and restarted the client, this time it got stuck at 118035 blocks

Last night I wiped everything and tried again and today I'm now stuck at 105085 blocks with 33 connections

I've set the client to use UPnP, I've tried using -addnodes on startup, I've added bitcoin.exe as an exception on Microsoft Security Essentials, I just don't know what to do to get my client to pull in all the latest blocks

Download the blockchain directly.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/blockchain/

This should put you at 120000 then download the rest via the client.

That was working great for about 20 minutes there, but now it's stuck at 124423 blocks with 9 connections. Tried restarting the client twice but still no new blocks coming down.

Hmm, try launching the client in server mode.

Also defrag and clean out temporary system files.

System Ninja can help with that.

Aside from all that.. you may have to reinstall the OS if you keep having issues.

Well I ended up downloading the 6/10 blockchain from here http://bitcoin.bluematt.me/bitcoin-nightly/blockchain-nightly/ and my client has been able to bring me up to 130192. Hopefully it'll stay current from this point forward.

Thanks for the help
