    I use UTorrent 2.2.1. It is stable and it doesn't give me any problems with Windows 7 pro x64 at all. The only problems I have is when someone with 3.0 or later they aren't connectable to me. I hate it when users use 3.0 or later versions of Utorrent. Seriously those versions are almost always banned in private torrent sites or users should be discouraged to use anything 3.0 and later. The versions SUCK PEOPLE. Of course that's my opinion and a lot of others opinions.

    Introduction BEncoding is a data encoding scheme used primarily in the BitTorrent world. Because BEncoded files can contain binary data, and because of some of the intricacies involved in the way binary strings are stored, it is often not safe to edit such files in text editors. Many people have previously asked about where one might find an editor that can safely edit BEncoded files, but none have really existed in the general sense. The only ones I've seen were .torrent file editors, which (although they technically do edit BEncoded files) don't edit just ANY type of BEncoded file. Out of a bit of boredom and free time, this editor was born. Example Uses Edit .torrent files: - the announce/announce-list keys (binary/list) store the tracker(s) - the url-list key (binary/list) stores the webseed(s) - the nodes key (list) stores the DHT bootstrap node(s) Edit µTorrent's .dat files: - corrupt resume.dat files can sometimes be salvaged simply by loading and saving the resume.dat file in this editor - the paths stored in resume.dat can be edited en masse with Find/Replace Final Warning This utility is for advanced users. Read the warnings in the USES section, and read them again until you understand well what you're getting yourself into by using this editor. Its relatively intuitive UI can beguile most uninitiated/beginning users, as it has an inherent ability to invalidate many files through wrong and incorrect edits. Consider this editor to be experimental. As such, you should exercise caution by backing up any files you plan on editing with this utility. Download x64 builds will run only on 64-bit versions of Windows. Unicode builds can display Unicode characters (like Asian characters) properly, but work only with Windows 2000 and above. ANSI builds can't display Unicode characters properly, but should work on Windows 9x and above. Notes - Binary data and integers are exported as raw data rather than BEncoded data - Dictionary merging does not sort keys or resolve duplicate keys - File recovery recovers only decodable parts of input files - Finding "Value by Key" finds exact key names unless RegEx is used - Holding Ctrl while reloading reloads data from disk - Holding Shift while moving moves an item to top/bottom (direction-dependent) - Holding Shift while pasting pastes the item below the currently focused item - Holding Shift while sorting will recursively search for dictionaries to sort - Only dictionaries can be sorted - Only files containing dictionaries and lists can be edited directly - Switching an item between dictionary/list will cause the item to be cleared - The root of a dictionary (not its children) must be selected to sort it Final Thoughts Bug reports, suggestions, and the like are always welcome... Just be aware that there are no guarantees that I'll ever get around to doing anything about them. I might not do anything about them for a period of time, and then I might suddenly work on them in a "spur of the moment" kind of... uh, whatever. History

    My mistake, I was looking at the official (full) file... BTW, I am trying now a new RSS downloader "replacement" - called: Medusa - https://cdn.pymedusa.com/ It's actually pretty nice. I've added to it some new uTorrent related changes/fixes, that were embedded into the next release. Also, added locally a min/max smart-file-size filters too... Works great

    I kept upgrading thinking that the newer versions would be better... but the last one was the drop that spilled the glass. I went back to the last installer i had on my machine (3.1), and I even might go back to a 2.x version if i find it.

    Tried some 3.x builds but just could not get them to match the performance of 2.2.1. Also, 3.x has pesky ads and apps, if I wanted bloatware I would not use utorrent at all. For me 2.2.1 lets me add the RSS feeds that I want and then I can forget about even looking at it, it just does the job. I've also helped some friends use 2.2.1 instead of 3.x. What would the reason be to use anything newer?

    Discovered a workaround for the disappeared "Append the torrent's label to the directory name" Enable your uTorrent's web interface, go to it using your browser, adjust the settings from there - the "append..." checkbox is still present in that interface, and it still works (just tested it). Enable web interface: Open the uTorrent program and in the menus, choose Options>PreferencesIn the dialog box, expand "Advanced" and click "Web UI"In the right side of the dialog box:check (turn on) the "Enable Web UI" checkboxPut in a username and password (even if just for a minute - you can turn all this off once we're done). Remember these authentication values.Check the Connectivity> "Alternative listening port..." box, and type in a port value.(I couldn't make the Web GUI work without choosing an alternative listening port). In my example, I'll use port 23456; you can use anything, but I recommend a number higher than 4096. In any case, remember this port value.Click "OK"Go to the Web UI using your browser: On the same computer that's running uTorrent, open your favorite (compatible) browser and enter the URL http://localhost:[port]/gui. the [port] value was determined above. In my example, the URL is http://localhost:23456/guiYou should be prompted to log in. Use the authentication values from above.Adjust the setting by using the Web UI: Once logged in with your browser, click the little "preferences" gear icon at the top of the web page.On the left side of the "Preferences" dialog box, click "Directories"On the right side of the same dialog box, check (turn on) the "Append the torrent's label" box.Click the dialog box's "Apply" button (or "OK" button, but you can save a step below by using "Apply")I suggest testing with a quick download now, but that it of course optional. WHat I mean by "testing" is you should go fetch a torrent, apply a label to it (one for which you haven't built a label/directory mapping rule) and see if it gets placed in the desired subfolder when it's finished. For impatience, I suggest using a small-sized torrent with lots of seeders. Sorry, I won't include troubleshooting steps here in case it fails; I'm already using more time typing this than I'd wanted to use Turn off the Web UI (also optional): (you can even do this from within the web page!) In the same browser window, same dialog box, on the left side, click "Web UI" and uncheck (turn off) the "Enable Web UI" checkbox. This will give you a "Web UI was disbaled" window.Close the browser window/tab

Try uninstall ZoneAlaram if installed. 1. An updated help file for v3.2.x/3.3.x The current uTorrent help file is "compatible" with version 2.2. Here is an updated help file for v 3.2.1 and one for 3.3.x. It is is not 100% complete, but I believe better then the older one. 1. Extract utorrent.chm from the zip file into your settings directory (either local, with the exe, or at %appdata%/utorrent) 2. Now, for example, for version 3.2.1 Rename the file to utorrent-<version#>-<build#>.chm [example: utorrent-321-28086.chm] Note: starting from v 3.4 (build 30553) the help file name changed to utorrent-<version#>.chm [example: utorrent-340.chm] And you are all done! An 'enhanced' new RSS tutorial is in there too @chapter 2 - Basic Guides. Feel free to post here comments/syntax-errors/more info you think should be included A. For fixing CPU-load/memory-issues/Disk-overload/stability: [0] Set Pref.->Advanced net.low_cpu - true [1] In pref.->advanced->Disk Cache Make sure : 1a. ->Override automatic cache size... - is checked 1b. ->reduce memory usage when the cache is not needed - is unchecked [2] Make sure pref.->advanced->gui.transparent_graph_legend is false [3] Reduce disk overhead by also enabling pref.->general->pre-allocate All Files [4] Win7 users might experience uTorrent process not closing properly. It is suspected to be caused by a Microsoft IPV6 issue. Those command lines can assist by disabling IPV6 in your system: In Windows - go Start->run->cmd, and enter those two commands: netsh int 6to4 set state disabled netsh int teredo set state disabled ATTENTION: these commands will disable IPV6/teredo. You might need it for other applications, and M$ Homegroup on Win7+ NOTE: to re-enable: > netsh int 6to4 set state enabled > netsh int teredo set state default [5] Win7 freezing on you - you can also set the new advanced setting: net.disable_ipv6 = true and pref->connection->Enable uPnP Port mapping = unchecked. That might prevent it. B. For improving low speed issues: [1] Make sure your upload speed limit is correctly set as follows: 1a. Set the upload limit to about 80-95% of your connection's maximum upload-speed/cap. This is required so to accommodate for 1) + 2) above, limiting the total of upload-payload + download-acks-overhead You can test your connection speed @ http://speedtest.net or use the options->setup-guide (control-G) 1b. Set "Bandwidth->Apply rate limit to transport overhead" to enabled (very recommended) - 1c. Set "Bandwidth->Apply rate limit to uTP connections" to enabled (very recommended) 1d. If you have "Bandwidth->Apply rate limit to transport overhead" - disabled - set the upload limit to 70-80% of your connection's maximum upload-speed/cap. This is recommended in this case, but not required, though. You can set it to as low as the actual seeding-payload speed you like to have. In both cases you can use a different upload speed limit setting at pref->bandwidth->"Alternate upload rate when not downloading" Test your download speed again now with this (test torrent...) This step should be enough for most users that upgrade! Important notice: It seems that there is an issue with v3.x upload limiter with high-speed connections (upload speeds > 500KB/s) . uTorrent upload limiter fails to limit uTP connections correctly! It seems to limit them to about ~500K . So, unless you want to just not use the limiter for uTP (un-check/disable "Bandwidth->Apply rate limit to uTP connections" ) or just not use uTP (un-check BitTorrent->Enable bandwidth management) here is a tip how to overcome this: * Set any download limit you want * ! Strangely, this seems to help bypass the upload limiter issue Remember: this is ONLY for very high speed UPLOAD rates! and for the time being, till they'll fix the upload limiter [2] Settings that might improve (reduce) your overhead: 2a. Set pref->advanced->net.uTP_dynamic_packet_size =false 2b. Set pref->advanced->net.utp_initial_packet_size = 8 (use MTU size, actually 1440...) [3] Set pref.->advanced->bt.tcp_rate_control = false [4] If you want to try and reduce your ISP's throttling: Some ISPs are more "sensitive" to UPD (uTP) traffic. You can reduce the use of uTP by - 4a. Support only uTP incoming connections by setting pref->advanced->bt.transp_disposition = 29 4b. Alternatively - disable the use of uTP by pref->BitTorrent->Enable Bandwidth Management = unchecked [5] To improve availability of peers, you might want to clean up the bans uTorrent imposes on PEX peers due to 'message flood'. So, for torrents running/active for a long time, it might be helpful to perform every couple of days: right-click->advanced->reset bans right-click->advanced->clear peer list Finally, For users who like to experiment with uTP - try to reset it to UNLIMITED speed disabling the new: Bandwidth->Apply rate limit to uTP connections . The theory is that this will give you high speeds, w/o effecting other Internet traffic. Good luck with it ! and report back here ... ! C. For improving Internet choking / router issues: [1] First, make sure you have set a proper upload speed limit (B.1 above) and that your max # of connections/slots are per the setup-guide [2] Change setting per B.2a&B.2b above [3] Set your pref->advanced->bt.connect_speed = 5 [4] Set your pref->advanced->net.max_halfopen = 8 [5] Disable the DHT network [6] In pref->connection - Disable NAT-PMP port mapping. Make sure 'uPnP port mapping' is unchecked if you've manually forwarded you port in the router. [7] AMD Dual Core specific issue, choking when running on XP D. If you feel your multimedia player throttles your speed (Win7/Vista): If you've noticed this strange behaviour (mostly with high speed connections) when running a player/recorder/streamer app - blame Microsoft... and modify/create this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile\ Name : NetworkThrottlingIndex Setting to - FFFFFFFF will make it not throttle . Other values may adjust the amount per the above article. E. For minimizing possible "privacy invasion" issues: 1. Settings: Pref->general->send details when checking for updates - unchecked Pref->advanced->gui.report_problems - false (do not send crash reports) Pref->advanced->gui.bypass_search_redirect - false (bypass BT inc search server when searching) 2. To avoid installing of the TOOL-BAR make sure you follow this: You may also look here for some more advanced methods on how to uninstall it ... F. Bypassing known bugs: 1. For Win 7/x64 users - not being able to kill uT process - see A[3-4] above ... 2. Resetting Transfer Cap history - will not quit the "stopped" state , caused by the cap limiter. A bypass solution is here. 3. Sometimes you may notice a Chinese link on the toolbar. Here is how you change it to English, remove it you replace it with yours... : 0. Close uTorrent 1. Run BEendode-editor http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=31306 on your active settings.dat file 2. Search inside for "stitle" (no quotes) 3. Edit it (double click) and replace it with "Take our product survey" Now, rerun uTorrent see if that did the trick ... And for the bonus-extra-fun part: a. Search for "s_url" b. Edit in your own URL, like this one to this on-line TIPs/guide: http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=74820 c. Per the above 'guide' enter as stitle: "Rafi's tips-guide..." G. When the speed is going over your set limits: a. See that your Perf.->bandwidth->Apply rate limit to uTP connections is checked... b. Optionally: Enable Preferences->bandwidth->Apply rate limit to transport overhead c. Enable Preferences->BitTorrent->limit local peers bandwidth d. DHT network can 'contribute' some upload rate. If you do not really need it, you can disable it, to avoid that: Either completely - disable Preferences ->Bittorrent->Enable DHT network, or for individual torrents - in properties of the torrent. H. For problems downloading the "help file" : - Get the latest copy from here or here - Extract to your settings *.dat files location - Rename to utorrent-<version-#>-<build-#>.chm For example - for release 2.0.1 build 19248 - utorrent-201-19248.chm for release 2.0.2 build 19648 - utorrent-202-19648.chm for release 2.2.0 build 23071 -utorrent-220-23071.chm --> Starting from v 3.4 (build 30553) the help file name changed to utorrent-<version#>.chm [example: utorrent-340.chm] I. For possibly faster one-by-one downloading of multi-files in a torrent: This tip will assist you in case you have multiple TV episodes inside a single torrent, and you like to download and watch the first episode(s) first. Here is how you do it conveniently and automatically - 1. Press shift-F2 + click preferences 2. Press shift-F2 + click advanced (if not already on advanced). ( http://is.gd/7nm3px ) 3. You'll see a new property: bt.sequential_files. Set it "true" You are all done. From now on - multi-torrents downloads will automatically set high priority to the first/top file downloading, and low for the rest. This way you'll get the top on the list the fastest way. Note: a. The downloads' order always goes by the position of the file inside the torrent. b. You should revert this setting to FALSE again, since the overall time to download multi-files torrents - will be LONGER! http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/901/80831709.png http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/1409/63494567.th.png J. For auto-extracting files after download completes: Use the following command inside preferences->Advanced->Run-Program: or: cmd /c start /min IF EXIST "%D\*.r*" "c:\program files\winrar\winrar.exe" x -ibck "%D\*.r*" "%D" Were c:\program files\winrar\winrar.exe - is the location of your Winrar program. Adding the '-ad' switch will also create a sub-folder with the rar file name. More details are in this winrar guide: http://acritum.com/software/manuals/winrar/ If you do not have Winrar on you PC, here is another nice utility that might help you do that :http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=114772 K. How to revert 3.0 graphs to 2.2.1 look & feel Here is a template/skin file I made, that supposes to give you the 2.2.1 speed-graph's colors. Try it out https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B1fLVXA8Va91MEJHcGFNVWpRX1U (rename to current.btskin) You just need to drag & drop it into uTorrent 3.0 or double click it. To get back into the original colors: close uT, and delete the generated current.btskin file, that should be were your settings.dat is (either at your exe location or %appdata%\utorrent) Have fun! http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/4862/65337751.th.png L. A "backup" copy of the language pack-file (schnurlos's page) http://www.should.keepfree.de/utorrent.lng.zip M. Smartly using of the RSS auto-downloader - avoid fake torrents Those of you who are using the RSS downloader, know that uTorrent does not help in filtering torrents using their contents, but only by the torrents' name and episodes/seasons #. You find yourself auto-downloading fake torrents, that require some password to open them, using suspicious sites ! Here is a special RSS feed-site that can help you with better filtering: http://www.dailytvtorrents.org/ I found it very useful to eliminate those fake torrents. Here is an example how you can define it in uTorrent: Feed's link - http://www.dailytvtorrents.org/rss/allshows?norar=yes&onlynew=yes This will make sure there is no *.rar inside the torrents, and that only new releases are scanned. http://thumbnails70.imagebam.com/19141/0fec64191402276.jpg N. How to Control uTorrent "Offers" (Enable/Disable Ads/Promotions) Starting with uTorrent 3.2.1, uTorrent includes a few new "Offer"-links to a sponsored torrent showing only new offers and auto-disabled when you skip/select it's offers (visible just below the toolbar) and to uTorrent Plus download plus an extra promo page (visible on the left pane="rail"). All of those can be enabled/disabled using the Advanced settings (you can use "offer" filter). You can see those settings in the below screenshots and set them to true/false so to enable/disable each (for both 3.2.1 and 3.2.2 and above). In addition, there are two icon-links to uTorrent's Facebook/Tweeter pages at the bottom right on the status bar, and a "take out survey" link on the right side of the toolbar. Those cannot be removed. 3.4.x offers' related settings will be listed when it is stabilized (probably @3.4.3) . Till then you have those links for 3.4.2: http://forum.utorrent.com/topic/88607-34x-stable/page-44#entry494405 3.2.2+ settings 3.2.1 settings http://thumbnails101.imagebam.com/21957/1513bf219563124.jpg http://thumbnails106.imagebam.com/21957/4a93a2219563126.jpg P. Make pref->bandwidth->Alternate upload rate when not downloading - work "better" The "Alternate upload rate when not downloading" seems to be sensitive to very small on-going download rates. The reason is this special setting called ul_rate_download_thres that is set to 0 by default. You need to increase it a bit: - Press shift-F2 and Preferences - Press shift-F2 and advanced ( http://is.gd/7nm3px ) - set ul_rate_download_thre to 5K or more Q. Solve the 'missing tray icon' on XP with 3.3.1+ (plus - a replacement icon) Since v3.3.1, people running Windows XP have noticed that the tray icon might not show up. This is due to uTorrent now using a compressed format for the icon, that XP seem to not support. Following are 3 alternative icons-files that you can use: http://105.imagebam.com/download/G6pFK7NTEAlCTyJ9ZcunIw/26626/266258635/tray3.3_48_tn.pngIcon with 3.3. style: https://docs.google.com/uc?authuser=0&id=0B1fLVXA8Va91TDFjUVJYU3ZuREU&export=download http://103.imagebam.com/download/7Ws2vjWIUR8w7sdCgXeyCw/26626/266258622/tray332_64_tn.pngIcon with 3.3.1+ style: https://drive.google.com/uc?id=0B1fLVXA8Va91ZjZidUM5ZUZKams&export=download http://104.imagebam.com/download/H9zhUhYF5JalmdhEGHEsOg/26626/266258630/trayPopular_256_tn.pngAnother popular icon style: https://drive.google.com/uc?id=0B1fLVXA8Va91d0tvVXFFQjlteEE&export=download And do the following: 1. Download and rename to "tray.ico" 2. Place where your settings are (with the exe of in %appdata%\utorrent) 3. Re-run uTorrent You are all done... R. How to bypass auto-update into %appdata%\uTorrent, and use any other directory Since 3.3.1, uTorrent is auto-updating and installing the exe into %appdata%\uTorrent . People that have previously some kind of "standalone" install (exe + settings), have installed into c:\program files\uTorrent, or simply want to install in a flash-drive/DOK might find their uTorrent install - relocated, and sometimes will even temporarily loose their old settings. Until this issue is resolved here is how to trick windows to put everything in any directory you like: 1. Start->run->cmd and open a command window 2. cd %appdata% 3. If you already have a sub-directory .\uTorrent - rename it to _uTorrent: >ren uTorrent _uTorrent 4. Set a logical link into the directory you want the install in (with quotes): >mklink /D uTorrent "<your_install_full_path_name>" 5. Copy uTorrent.exe (and your other settings/torrent files if needed) from .\_uTorrent to your install path as well You are all done! S. "Disk overload"/"Cache overflow" warning - what is it and how to try to overcome Some users observe a "Disk overload" warning on the status bar. This is observed when: - Downloading at higher rates (usually over 8MB/sec) - Downloading of multi-files torrents (files there are not aligned to disk blocks) - Downloading of larger files >4GB - Using a slower hard drivers (slower USB connection) - Using an AV software that interferes with the download - Having access permissions in the download location The good news is: this issue was greatly improved in release 3.4.1, so I suggest to first try and upgrade (backup your settings first) and see if it helps. This release should have no issues up to speeds of ~12MB/sec (~100mbps) when using my settings file) In principle, this warning is when uTorrent cannot write the downloaded data as fast as it downloads it. It then throttles it's own speed to compensate. Things to do that *might* help (beside improving the above root causes) : - Use my recommended settings file - Try to run-as-admin - Checking Pref.Advanced->Disk Cache->Write out untouched blocks every 2 min. might help a bit with not accumulating of completed pieces in cache. - Optional: Set pref.->advanced->diskio.use_partfile = FALSE (might result in "skipped" files being downloaded) - As a last resort: try to also change my settings to Pref.->Advanced->diskio.sparse_files to TRUE (Warning: this increases HD fragmentation) Good luck! T. Making auto-backup for your settings files Settings files are sensitive to crashes (not using a proper exit command). You might find yourself "loosing" your torrents, if resume.dat is corrupted for example. This is a cmd file that I recommend to run uTorrent with, so to be able to recover if required, using the backup settings: copy /Y resume.dat.save resume.dat.save.old copy /Y resume.dat resume.dat.save ! Can copy here the other .dat files, like settings.day start /D "D:\Program Files\uTorrent\uT 3.4" utorrent.exe /recover U. How to auto-map a label to a folder (3.4.1+) Starting with 3.4.1, you can ask uTorrent to auto-select (map) for you a destination download path and give labels to torrents/files you "add" for downloading. This feature is now limited in functionality (works only it "Add torrent" dilog is being used) and still has some bugs... Here is how: 1. Make sure you have Pref.->UI setting->"When Adding Torrents" section - Show options to change the name and location of the torrent data - Enabled 2. In the new pref.->Labels->"Label-Directory Mapping" section (lower) - make a list of your labels, and their desired destination pathes (use the "+" to add) 3. In the new pref.->Labels->"Auto-Label" section (upper) - enter the *exact same* label, and the text sub-string in torrents you'd like uTorrent to find and associate with it (use the "+" to add) 4. Do not enter and wildcards (*, ? ) , and remember to ENABLE the feature by checking the box "Use Label and directory Rule" at the top Limitations/bugs: a. The lower "-" (delete) does not work, do be careful.... (can still be deleted using BEncode utility on the settings.dat file ...) b. No wildcards for "abc*cde" type strings c. Does not work when not using the "Add" dialog d. You cannot change the default set for video/music, so, do not touch if you need them... Example for newer movies that includes the year in their name ("yyy 201x zzzz"): http://www.imagebam.com/image/3db7e2325810863 And the result for this test torrent: http://www.imagebam.com/image/ac41b3325810857 Good luck!

    Personally I find 3.4.x to have a clean UI.. also is anyone having disk I/O and caching issues now? I don't get asked to rate torrents and I don't have built in Anti-virus. As far as social features go, I have a Facebook icon.. I don't have ads either and haven't had any stability problems.

    Tried using the new version and had trouble with the new interface and the reduced advanced options choice! Still using 2.2.1 till this day and haven had any troubles. I am on Win 7 x64. The only feature I am missing from the 3.x versions is the ability to search through your added torrents using the search field in the top right. However, the lack of that feature cannnot overwhelm me to switch to 3.x, cause the changes to the interface are horrific! It takes way too much space for no reason, and therefore prohibits for a nice overview of the added torrents. If the reason behind it was to boost the touch capabilities and the new High DPI screens, the make it inteligent and give the choice to optimize for touch, high dpi or choose to keep it as it was in 2.2.1. Thank you! P.S. I am also very interested in how the 13 pages of 2.2.1 praise will/have influenced your development. Judging on the last few releases, it seems that our opinion in simply neglected and discarded.

    Still using 2.2.1. Works like a charm. I switched back to there somewhere around the 3.1 or 3.2 versions. Everything just kept breaking and new patches would just go and break something else, install packages were bundled with all sorts of rubbish, ads started appearing, and appearantly you had to setup a whole bunch of settings yourself before things actually just worked fine like they used to. Has this changed? Is it worth checking out the new 'stable' versions, or are they still usually broken and are people still referred to the 'beta' version, which then also is broken?

    I followed the guide, where it says the files should be copied manually before changing the Download Location in uTorrent.

    One other difference between 2.x versions and new one... How many ads (hidden or visible) do new versions have? I recently tried new 3.2.2 beta and had to untick ads and other mumbo-jumbo during installation, inside the program i had to disable (hide) featured torrents, then i had to hide all other stuff that clutters UI, afterwards i had to search the forums to find how to disable left_rail_offer and sponsored_torrent. And finally, when i thought im finally done, in the down right corner two icons pop out, Facebook and Twitter icons. Now, my question is...is there anything else i need to disable? Any other hidden ads that will jump out and scare me? With every new version, more and more time is needed to bring the torrent UI back to as it was. Help file is not updated, some options are not working (like the one i mentioned -> removing the search box), some other options are working for a little while than they stop working altogether untill they start working again (like clicking on a tray icon and opening the program with a single click and then clicking on the same icon again to close the program back to tray). Now, these are the things i noticed as a most simplest utorrent user. I'm scared to thing what other bugs are there and what else is not working as it should if i were a more advanced user and would require more tinkering with an advanced options.

    @chandukasri, did you follow the instructions here: https://remote.utorrent.com/signup In particular, does your desktop uTorrent client report "Status: accessible"? If so, then be sure that you're entering your username and password exactly the same in both the uTorrent client and the web or Android login form.

    If you don't mind me asking Rafi why was that changed in the first place? I've always been with the "If it's not broken don't fix it" mentality. I'll have to wait till I get home to adjust the settings (4 days from now) but it is very frustrating to update something and it instantly go from 1MB a sec to 80KB. There should be a disclaimer about that. Personally on my line when I do uploading beyond say 20% I start to take a hit. Putting it at 80% really makes me take a hit. I've been told it could be because of the other digital services I receive. However the reverse also happens where if I cut my DL I can significantly increase my UL. Because of this I've always limited my UL to 1kb so I could maximize my download. Once finished and when I didn't need the bandwidth, such as now when I'm on the road for several days, I'd leave it on max upload. Usually because of how often I'm gone my UL has always been greater than my DL for the month. I don't know why this change has happened, I'm not much into programming, so I guess I'll be uninstalling and going with an older version. Not to be a pain but if this is the direction things will be going it would be a nice feature to be able to select your UL/DL limits based on % of your bandwidth test.
