I would check your security settings for windows for internet explorer and any other security you might have that may be blocking it, including your firewall.

What Torrent site you trying to use

You often need to open a port on your router. It depends on which downloader you're using, but have a look at click here for good walkthroughs.

Also, some ISPs block ports used by torrent downloaders, or throttle connections that seem to be downloading a lot of data. Worth checking with your ISP what its policy is - and be persistent; they don't like fessing up to doing it.
