Hi,

I've been mining and making payouts from my pool for a couple of months. The last couple of weeks my bitcoin count is not refreshing.
It seems like it is frozen at some point, something must be corrupt or something.

I'm using windows 7 and bitcoin client 0.3.24-beta.

It shows 8 connections 137074 blocks and the confirmations for my succesfull transactions doesn't grow. They are like frozen.
It seems like something must be corrupt or something.

Any ideas?
Thank you.

Find and save your wallet.dat to somewhere safe.

Uninstall bitcoin and re-install.

Once the blockchain gets over 139,518 or so (whatever it is now) stop bitcoin, replace your wallet.dat on the new empty one.

Restart bitcoin

Good Luck

Good Luck
