I've downloaded the latest Win. version but can't make the Ethereum node sync. I've also turned my firewall off but still not working. Can anyone help? I'm not a techie guy. Thanks.
You may have a corrupt blockchain, in which case, you can open windows explorer and manually type into the address bar:
%appdata%. Then go to the
/Ethereum folder and delete or remane the
/chaindata folder. This will force the wallet to resync the blockchain from the genesis. Note that any existing wallets will be saved.
