Torrent won't get past "downloading metadata" despite 30+ seeds

I started a torrent 8 hours ago and went to bed. This morning it's still "downloading metadata" despite the seeds column showing 35 (4) and peers in the 200s. It's a 126mb file so it's not huge. 3 of the trackers are showing invalid URL or connection timed out, but one says working and DHT, local peer discovery, and peer exchange are all showing working. I started two other files at the same time as this one and both finished quickly. I have never seen this problem before ever so I'm clueless as to what could be causing it.

I use the free version of Avast on my computer and I have Spybot-SD Resident running, and neither has ever before interfered with any torrents. I have torrented frequently from the same group of sites using only uTorrent for years now and this is the first time I've ever encountered this issue.

Edit 1: In fact, nothing has ever interfered with my torrents other than throttling from my internet company. Even with that, I typically get speeds up to 4mb/sec. The only other times I haven't been able to download something are when there were no seeds. This has been consistently showing 30+ seeds and 200+ peers since I started it now 12 hours ago and it still says downloading metadata.

Edit 2: Also at the same time I started this torrent, I started two others from the same torrent site with the same exact trackers between them. One of the 3 finished in a few seconds, the second finished sometime during the night while I was asleep. So it's not an overall downloading problem. I have other torrent files seeding successfully right now too. So it's not an overall connection problem. It really seems like something specific to this torrent but I have no clue what.
