Half-open limit fix

1) Run Half-open limit fix
2) Choose a new limit of concurrent half-open outbound connections quantity and press "Add to tcpip.sys" (for most Internet users, changing the limit to 100 will be more than sufficient)
3) Restart computer and enjoy

Running the program again may be required if Windows updates tcpip.sys, such as when a new SP is released. If program ceases to work on an updated tcpip.sys file, a new version will be available at this site.
To recover data on your hard drive that has been changed by the program just press "Restore original file".

Vista and Windows 7 users: Perhaps in the future, after updating Windows or installing a new Service Pack, a "Test mode" watermark may appear. It may appear because in all versions of Vista and Windows 7 (except in Vista x86 without SP1) there is the imposing drivers signature check, and the tcpip.sys file sign with test signature after patching. In such case, it should only require a simple re-installation of the program to remove the watermark.
