I have been trying to sync my machine up to mine Ether for the past few days to no success. Regardless of what version of any program I use, it always sticks around 60 percent complete and goes up about 10 blocks an hour. The first 60 percent of it only took an hour or so to download. I have tried totally removing all Ethereum related software and reinstalling to no avail.
I have a 50 down MINIMUM internet connection I have more than enough SSD space I have 16gb of memory I have the newest versions of all software required. I am running windows 8.1 x64
I appreciate any assistance!
