    3.5.x Beta

    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.

    >Windows 10 immediately kicked up a fuss about wacapew.c Which a/v software detected this? I have tried Windows defender custom scan - with no detections.
  3. In uTorrent you need it in KB/s, so 17600Kbps=> ~1900KB/s
  4. 17600/8 * 0.9 = ~1900KB/s will be ok, 1600 is also fine ...
  5. 90% of the upload what you ISP connection is can provide (check you plan). Hard to believe it is only 20kbps...
  6. No ads, and good speed...
  7. " My v3.x quick-fix >"Best Practice" settings.dat file< (^ see tip #O) " and by replacing you own settings.dat.
  8. Or... use my settings file (@ my sig...)
  9. Test servers open and close at will. Just check your speed with speedtest.net -> MULTI mode, and enter it manually...
  10. File write-permission issue? Try to run it as standalone (copy the exe + settings.dat to another disc-location).
  11. Check for open ports; https://check-host.net/
  12. If your directories and torrent files location - stay the same (including the drive name-letter) "force-recheck" can help.
  13. If there are no seeds, nothing will help. If there are - check for open ports Check server: Check host
  14. Yes and no, P2P will be difficult (when DHT is disabled) , but if you enable DHT - it can help as a workaround .

    Nothing happened to it... BTW, it is ~5MB in size...

    I think it fails when the download path have NOT been created yet (first few second of each file, when it is in cache). Just check if the folder really exists on disk.

    Is this a new thing, started in the last beta, or you've only just noticed it?

  19. You can set your ratio in preference->queuing->minimum ratio, and also override this in a torrent preference.
  20. Sure, just r-click "Force start" on that torrent to initiate Forced-seeding. It will be forever...

    Maybe a currupted settings file? If so, you can back it up (make sure you note down you port, psyhes, and other specific settings), and replace with my settings file @mysig. Tune it again to your needs.
  22. >Yes, but the system writes the new updated exes in that folder so changing the access could block updates... Not if you leave the write permission enabled...
  23. Here is another option, which may not require re-setting - adjust the update folder security setting for "users" (or add only your username) to NOT include "full control, read & execute, modify".
  24. >but utorrentie.exe is just recreated by the program everytime you run utorrent. I am aware of how to block exe files, but this will have to be done again and again , and I thought your idea was to block a process and was to avoid that repetition. Maybe I misread... Will this block that exe in placed another location too?
  25. How do you block a *process* by name in Windows firewall?
