    Can we just take a second and reflect - those developing this app are doing so for little, if any, reward. Coming on here and shouting the odds, complaining, whining and whinging is hardly encouraging. Constructive input with a full picture of situation is what is needed. Not cries of 'useless!' We're fortunate to have access to cutting edge developments. Support that, don't disparage it.

    I've not seen Google block the LAA, but MS Windows certainly has. I've allowed it through Windows Defender (itself a bit of a mission) but it can keep reminding of a PUA unless further steps are taken.

    My (rebuilt) laptop is making it very, very difficult to use this. Unwanted, potentially dangerous, blocked... Allow, allow, keep, keep, allow... And blocked. Keen to try it, but it's going to take some effort to persuade the laptop to let it through! (I understand what you've supplied, at a basic level, and why my laptop doesn't like it.)

    I'm back on 45724 for the moment. I'll have another look at this later. Sunday working gets in the way!

    3.5.x Beta

    Bare naked Windows 10, Build 19041.388 with the feature experience pack 120.2202.130.0. (Fully patched and up to date - trialing for a work deployment.) Notifications popped up as soon as I had installed from the magnet in mike's post above, and stopped as soon as I uninstalled.

    Can't be 100% certain, but following install of 45768 Windows 10 immediately kicked up a fuss about wacapew.c ml having been installed. Unwanted or malicious software. Only way around this was to uninstall uTorrent (lending credence to it having been included in the build).

    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.

    There's some really weird stuff going on. Tonight, uTorrent has decided the default place to save a download is b\. Just that - no colon, nothing else. I don't even have a B: drive!

    OK - this is weird. Running build 45628. Left it downloading one torrent (50-odd Gb) with several others in a 'stopped' state. Battery died at some point and the laptop shutdown - happened before, never a problem. Connected power, booted, started uTorrent, and.... Where are my torrents? They've gone. The one I had left downloading had completed, as it had been moved to my 'completed' directory. Nothing in the Recycle bin - deleting a torrent from uTorrent has always left something there. The missing .torrent torrent files are all in the C:\...\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent folder, including the one that had completed downloading. No actual loss as I'd not started the others - just set them up so I could do, later. No disk space issue - over 12Gb free space available. Curious. First time I've had any sort of issue with any build in a long time. Edit: Just dragged the .torrent files from the C:\...\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent folder to uTorrent, left them as 'stopped', shutdown uTorrent, restarted it, and... Yup - they're there. No problems. Restarting the added .torrents has led to a need to specify the destination folder name. That may be normal, of course. OK - fundamental problem. Downloading any new torrent with association to uTorrent, intended to start the torrent download, creates the 'Torrent error' "The system cannot find the path specified. (Write to disk.)" Looks like the new folder name is not being parsed, and an old folder named is being tried (and failing, when it has been removed.)

    I've typically found mike's (Mike's?) magnet-linked download doesn't contain or cause the uninvited installation of WebCompanion AdAware, while the 'full' beta-linked download usually does.

    3.5.x Beta

    Cool. Downloaded, scanned (of course), extracted, installation delayed because Win10 didn't like it (tell Win 10 to install anyway), then Win10 decided it had to scan again... After that all install as I usually have when downloading a new beta via magnet. WebCompanion Adaware installed again - uninstalled that. Not criticism - just FYIs for other folk.

    Clicked the link, downloaded. Ensured 45505 wasn't running, and tried to update/install to 45519. "A newer version of uTorrent, 3.5.5 build 45505 is already installed. Would you like to downgrade to 3.5.5 build 45397?" Checking the properties shows the file version and product version to both be 45397. (Unsurprisingly) I was unable to remove the version info from the file details. As an aside, I don't appear to have experienced any memory leaks from 45505.

    We're obviously doing something differently. I take the magnet link, use it to download the new version, and install. Works every time.

    Can the Adaware (Web Companion) installation be removed? I don't want it, but unless I take extra steps when installing, it does appear.
