Lately I have been having a tough time using ExtraTorrent.
First, it seems like once a week I start getting the Captcha screens. At first I was dutifully clicking on &quot;I am not a robot&quot; and playing with their picture squares. That got tedious, though, so I noted I could run an Anti-virus scan. I use Panda and the scan of important areas on my PC takes about 10 minutes, so I wait before trying ExtraTorrent. It does seem to work although nothing malicious has been found.
Second, once I go through this I seem to have one of three problems:
1. I cannot log in to the site. It just is on a loop and takes me back to the login screen. Or,
2. I get a Gateway Timeout or Cloudflare error and have to wait more time to access the site. Or,
3. I get into the site, but many of the icons and some of the pics are missing. It also seems to run much slower.
Is anyone else running into this? For the record, it is only happening when I use ExtraTorrent - no problem with other torrent sites or any sites in general.
Also, any suggestions reading this as to how I might improve my connection to ExtraTorrent?
PS. I use Chrome most of the time, but tried with Firefox, Edge and even IE - same result. Also, after just running the AV and finding no issues I am still getting Captcha

Does ExtraTorrent use Cloud Flare?
After reading the info at the site you provided, I'm wondering if the problem has to do with the ip addresses assigned by my VPN (Torguard)? I try to use different servers, but often get the same ip addresses. Maybe those addresses are causing problems in Cloud Flare and that's why I keep getting all these Captcha things.
