    why is there such a difference between earnings and in app credit ? And why are BTT deducted even though I have disabled the option ? It is very frustrating. I've been seeding for 2 weeks to earn ~1000 BTT and every now and then 100-200 BTT are suddenly gone. Image

    Yeah, that's why you want to use the 2 mb size version without the wrapper-installer. Just rename the small guy to utorrent.exe and overwrite the old with the new and launch it directly from its normal location [%appdata%\utorrent], it'll self-update with no fuss at all. If you launch the small guy from another location it will redo its [minimal] install , asking a few questions before overwriting itself, and you might loose a few settings but not many, it preserves your setup. But it's easiest to just overwrite it yourself and avoiding any sort of install at all. BTW, to find the small guy inside of large one, open the large one with 7zip; you'll see within a file called "carrier.exe", that's the small guy, everything else is "the installer" crap, which often offers up shareware...just extract carrier.exe, rename to utorrent.exe and do the overwrite - voila...you're updated...with all your settings intact [important if you turned off all the ads.] I've been overwritting for years and never once seen an ad or any shareware... Always look for the 2 mb size, or extract it yourself from the 4mb wrapper...

    I have the same problem, I've found a post on reddit reporting the same more detailed: https://www.reddit.com/r/BittorrentToken/comments/mm2ofa/btt_wallet_is_absolute_garbage_be_careful_because/ They really need to fix these problems asap or BTT will lose its legitimacy/worth quickly.

    Hi, I'm not qualified nor a developer, I can only write my thoughts. I think that in-app balance and total earnings are different, because in-app counts only the BTT that are correctly assigned to your ID, while total earnings counts all the BTT that your ID has "booked". I understood that BTT speed works like a auction and there is a third actor which assure that payment occurs only if the upload was done. I think some "bookings" fail for whatever reason. For example, once I saw in earnings-graphic three bars around 80 BTT each, but actually I got only 80 and not 240. But yes, I agree with you that earnings count should be consistent with in-app balance, spendings and withdraws, because current number is meaningless and irrelevant.

    I have ~8200 torrents loaded, and uTorrent (both stable and beta versions) is crashing roughly every 10 minutes. Which of course makes it completely unusable because it won't even finish checking the incomplete downloads before it crashes again, let alone continuing the download. My resume.dat is 158 MB. I do not know how big it is supposed to be, but 158 MB does not sound like an awful lot to me. I am trying to load my resume.dat into 64-bit version of BEncode editor, just to see if there's anything obviously wrong there. And the app consumes 4,7 GB of RAM just to read this file. No wonder that poor 32-bit uTorrent is having hard times parsing it! (Even with LAA flag, which is not set by default, a 32-bit app can only address 4 GB of memory.) Why cannot we just have a 64-bit version of uTorrent? Forcing people to use 32-bit apps in 2021 is crazy! I am already a paying uTorrent Pro customer, and I am even willing to pay a little extra for a 64-bit version. (Even though it's ridiculous.) Or perhaps the developers need to come out from the shades and make a clear support statement. E.g. maybe uTorrent is only supposed to work well if you have less than XYZ torrents loaded. And anything more than that is formally not supported and at your own risk only. Then maybe people who want to load more torrents will stop complaining and will go look for other torrent apps.

    I agree with almost all of what you said 100%. I would disagree that 158mb is not a lot. The entire Holy Bible is 3mb when converted to a ZIP file. My resume.dat file is 31 mb.. which is STILL the equivalent of 10 bibles. I have roughly 8000 torrents. That comes out to about 4000 characters worth of information for EACH torrent! That is clearly a problem. There is no reason why a single torrent should be more than 100 bytes, which would result in a Resume.dat of 800k.. less than 1mb! It could be.. that they have allocated far too large of a fixed size for each record in the DAT file. In your case, each torrent is using roughly 20,000 characters worth of information. But that gets back to the big problem.. it doesn't seem like anybody is listening!

    If you see Speed there than you have "BitTorrent | Enable Protocol Enhancments" checked in options. This allowed uT to install the "BitTorrent Speed" add-on at some point. This add-on is a fairly large thing, and if you do not use it then turn it off by: 1) Quit 2) save settings.dat [just in case!] 3) launch and uncheck "enable protocol enhancments", save. 4) Quit and relaunch. It shd be off/gone now. FWIW the btspeed add-on is in the ut/helper folder. Note: once turned off it will not come back simply by turning it on again - you need to wait for it to be offered up again, perhaps a few weeks. you may also lose your earned tokens. [restoring the prev settings.dat file might bring it back immeadiately, I'm not sure tho]. But if you're not using the feature you don't care anyway... If in doubt read up on BitTorrent Speed. --- you can also disable other "baggage" in uT: TronTV, BTFS and DLive, with these Preferences | Advanced option changes: offers.dlive_enabled to false offers.TronTV_enabled to false offers.btfs_enabled to false. [I think btfs has been totally depreciated] Note: you need to hold down shift-f2 when clicking on Options | Preferences menu choice to see these "hidden" options. [This an an old trick, shift-F2 reveals a different second-set of advanced parameter-names, always best to try both regular and then shift-F2 when "snooping" thru the parameters. BEncode Editor is also great for snooping thru .dat files]. Once done these guys [F8 and F9] should be dimmed in the Options drop-down menu, and gone in the sidebar. Lightening the misc features may make it work better for you... good luck. [Remember to always make a backup of settings.dat just in case!]

    Thanks for the update. In case anyone had high hopes for the new build, it's still crashing every ~10 minutes at me. Update Oh great. Now apparently it crashes even before it manages to save the settings file at least once. Because every time I relaunch it again, it opens the browser with the stupid “hey we've updated you” page. Which probably means that the fact it already did that was not recorded in the settings file. So, it becomes even worse than before.

    Holy crap, why this all is so hard. The link above only downloads the old stable version for me, 45852. Based on previous experience, I know it will probably change in the future, perhaps in a day or two. But right now, it gets the old version. And apparently there's no direct link to the new version. In-product update checker won't find a new version either and keeps saying that I'm up to date. I have mad respects to rafi and all the work he's trying to help folks out there. But he only posts already modified binaries with LAA flag enabled, so I cannot verify the digital signature of the file. So, guess I'm going to use a hex editor now to change rafi's file to LAA disabled and see if the signature becomes valid. Yes, it worked. Once I flipped byte 00000166 from 23 (LAA) to 03 (non-LAA), the signature is valid. And yes, I flip it back before actually running the app because obviously who would want to run non-LAA. But I won't run it until I check the signature.

    AFAIK you have to install it in Admin for it to show up in standard user. Otherwise you would have to create a shortcut on standard users but also make separate folder to store them on the Standard user setup to it so it doesn't cause issues with the Admin setup of utorrent when saving torrents or finished torrents.

    I would not say it is "abandoned" but it would be nice if the developers / programmers would acknowledge the problems.. and ask for more details about the problem so they can fix it. I used to be a super programmer myself (I gave it up because I got very little appreciation for my efforts financially or otherwise). It is extremely difficult to fix bugs in software, especially if the code was written in a cryptic coding language such as C++. It is usually easier to write new code from scratch rather than try to debug existing code. This is not only true about trying to debug someone ELSE'S code, but even trying to debug one's OWN code (probably because one is not likely to find their OWN mistakes).

    Can someone help me to make BitTorrent Speed work again on my uTorrent app? I cannot access it since I deleted a lot of files from %appdata% folder. I did uninstall the uTorrent app and reinstalled it again several times and nothing... I tried also with BitTorrent app and also with uTorrent Web and BitTorrent Web... Nothing. I am getting the following message when I push the Speed button: "Can't access helper UI - try again later". Does anyone know how to solve this? Thank you, Bogdan Get faster downloads and BTT token rewards.

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!

    This is not info that can be analyzed to trace the root cause... Disc overload is cased by utorrent capable for writing to your storage device at a rate that is lower then the download rate. So, it fills up the RAM cache first (time when everything seems to work OK) and then struggle to write to disk causing overload and slowing download. Look for a slow HD for random-writes (can test with Crystal disk checker) , or unlikely, relatively very-very fast Internet connection...

    Any of the exe files you see thre (including my LAA version) can be used standalone. You just need to start it up the first time anywere with an empty text file, renamed to settings.dat near your exe.

    I have tried installing uTorrent web, uTorrent Classic, BitTorrent web, and BitTorrent Classic but every single one seems to fail when I try to install it. I started off with downloading the file as usual but when I run the install files a download bar appears for a millisecond then disappears and nothing happens. I take a look in task manager and each one off show that their doing nothing. In the Temp folder the files for the install Wizard are their but they never launch after the initial installer downloads them. I have also tried disabling firewall, antivirus and unblocking the file. Simplified Version: after the initial installer is run the actual install Wizard does not run. <== What the installer downloads but doesn't do anything with. <== This install wizard from a YouTube video does not appear.

    Here is my suggestion for you: do not "install" uTorrent, just copy and replace your existing exe with the new one. No need to go through any "installation" process. As I said, try the custom defender scan on uTorrent folder, and see if it picks up anything. It didn't for me.

    Magent was slow to start, but quick to complete. However... That bl**dy Adaware Web Companion POS is back. Wasn't in the last few updates - any reason why it has been included this time? There's no option to not install it, or notification that it is being installed.

    A simple trick for this is - scroll down so everything *above* "Torrents (1)" will be hidden, done. uTorrent should save this scroll position for the next run... XD

    I actually believed that Utorrent 3.5.5 build 45952 finally fixed the problem of randomly dissociating files - which causes all sorts of problems. I got my database of torrents 100% fixed, which took nearly a week to accomplish. 7800 torrents running just fine. But then.. for no reason.. without a crash.. about 900 of them lost their associations again. I give up! Qbittorrent seems to be the most promising replacement for Utorrent/Bittorrent. They just updated to version 4.3.4.1 and there is a 64 bit version. Rafi and a couple of others have been doing a fantastic job of making Utorrent work as best it can, and helping people overcome problems. The fact that Rafi's repeated pleas for a 64 bit version have been ignored - tells me that Utorrent is never going to solve it's problems. I am keeping utorrent on my computer, but I won't be using it to download new torrents. I will use it to seed old torrents, and probably phase it out completely in about a year. Microsoft Windows operating system and Facebook are also loaded with errors that will probably never be fixed. It's interesting that in TV shows and in movies, computers are always shown working flawlessly, with no delays - yet in reality.. we get shit. Microsoft makes untold billion$ off of it's crappy software, even though you don't buy it directly, every computer product you purchase is forced to pay royalties to Microsoft. Even if your computer doesn't run Windows, computer manufacturers STILL have to pay Microsoft for every motherboard they produce. It's great to have a monopoly! Likewise with Facebook. All facebook cares about is collecting and verifying your name, mobile phone number, location, email addresses and any other information that is none of their business, so that they can sell it to advertisers, marketers, investigators, government agencies, and anybody else that will pay for it. Facebook even does their best to prevent you from using your own database of friends and followers to do anything. Their lists are not alphabetical, not consistent, and unusable. If Qbittorrent has big problems, I will let you know. So far, I am very impressed with Qbittorrent. It is very smooth and fast, and doesn't lock up or crash. The one tiny problem I found is that if you have a torrent that contains multiple files, but you choose to skip some of them.. everything is fine UNLESS you then add those files later. To fix it, you must remove the torrent (making sure you don't remove the files as well) and then add the torrent back and re-check it. This is a very minor problem that I am sure they will fix. Most people never skip files within a torrent - and when they do, they don't add them back - so they would never notice this error.

    The GUI/UI has been unchanged for ages now, from V1.x . So I guess Ludde - the original Swedish dev who sold uTorrent to BT inc (aka now - Tron) has developed it. Pretty old stuff and no Ludde now, from Windows 7 days.... Who knows, maybe using Win7 compatibility mode can improve this for you...
