On WIN 10, if you install torch, it becomes your default magnet opener. to change back to previous client, in my case utorrent, deleting torch works, or following
open regedit
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\Torch.BGL7GRC43Z6P6SZKFQCFJGPO2A\Capabilities\URLAssociations "NAME" MAGNET 
DELETE ENTRY AND WILL GO BACK TO PREVIOUS DEFAULT IE UTORRENT

I agree its not a utorrent problem, but deffinately a utorrent issue. It would be a nice feature if utorrent could add a force assosiation with magnet links

Im sure Torch purposely didnt add a setting to remove it as the default magnet handler. 

Its also a chrome issue since firefox asks who u want to use to open magnet links. chrome does not give a choice.

its also a windows 10 issue by way of not having a setting in default programs for magnet links
