Not a site. Having done a quick google, this error essentially means that the torrent client has lost access to the "tracker" it is using. This can be caused by a few things.
1) the user's firewall. Zone Alarm is (apparently) particularly known for interfering with torrents in this way.
2) ISP traffic Shaping. VM don't specifically "shape" torrents AFAIK, but they do use traffic shaping to reduce the general speed of the connection in peak times. Comcast particularly have a reputation for injecting the commands to cause this into torrents.
3) The "tracker" itself going offline. This isn't likely to be the case with all downloads, but could be for one or two.
@ the Original Poster, I would suggest that you try (temporarily) disabling any firewalls..
Thanks for your reply...
The only firewall i use is windows firewall, i didnt have any problems before switching to Virgin with it but when I get home I will try it....as for ISP traffic shaping, I try not to do any downloading during peak times to stay within the limits set out in the fair usage policy
