Dude ares is free. Don't download it unless it's free because it might be a virus. If you go to the ares web page at http://aresgalaxy.sourceforge.net/ you should find ares there for free. Remember ares is a free program. Do not get tricked into thinking that just because you have to pay for something its legit.
check it out I have had this same problem and have been scouring everywhere looking for the solution. I was told that you could not connect with the regular ares on vista---bull muffins!!!!! after searching high and low for a free ares vista full version, I became frustrated and decided to go back to the site of the ares I have on my xp pc. I went to aresgalaxy.sourceforge.net and downloaded ares 220.127.116.1135 and guess what not only did it connect on my vista home premium laptop but yes, it downloads too!!!! yay!!!!!! please spread the news to any and everyone who has been traumatized by ares withdrawl. luv u guys!!!!! please feel free to drop me a line if this helped you--sssssssss...
