To remove all doubt, I went over to my brother's house to use his older Windoze machine; which isn't all that hard considering that he lives over my garage.  I started the client on his computer (which uses my broadband) that I know does not have *any* security programs at all, and running over a broadband connection that does not have any blockages at all (because it's mine).  The client started up fine, and within a minute was reporting 60+ connections.  I'm thinking, "I'm good now", but an hour later it still had not incremented the block count even one from the blockchain that I downloaded at the same time as 0.3.10.  I think is was 67,300; but it never moved.  I tried to turn on and off generation, which I didn't expect to work and it didn't.

Any ideas?

How long did you wait?

Has windows sneakily installed Microsoft Security Essentials?

What happens if you delete the blk*.dat files and try to re-download from the start of the block chain?

What is in your debug.log file?

I said I waited about an hour.

Do they give it away free?  If not, there is no way my brother has it.  And if I find out that I'm wrong about that, I'm raising his rent out of spite.

I don't know, but those are a couple of good ideas.

I don't mean to state the obvious, but your post does not mention shutting down Bitcoin and starting it up again. When I upgraded to the new version several of my machines also stalled on the block count and restarting Bitcoin solved the problem. I think the same problem was mentioned in an earlier post and restarting also solved the problem on that occasion. Just something to try.

Well, I did try restarting it, but it didn't help.  I have not removed the blockchain or index files yet.

What does your debug log say?

I did have this exact problem. Stuck on the 67300, wouldn't download anymore.

Guess what? My clock said January 7th 2003. Fixed that, opened it back up and they all downloaded. Check your debug log. That's where it told me the blocks were too far into the future so I looked at my clock.


That's it!  My brother's clock was set wrong, it thought that it was 2001.
