New computer. How do I get utorrent to seed?

Recommended Posts

My  computer is  so ancient and slow that I should buy a new one.  I really only use it for downloading torrents. 

 

If I buy a brand new computer, am I going to have to go through all those pages and pages of utorrent settings in order for my torrents to seed? 

 

I did it years ago and I am now a lot older and I honestly don't know if I can do it again.

 Yes it would be nice to know. I’m sure that there are experts who know the answer. Here’s hoping they come on here! 

Exactly! I think that so.

Often, my files get set to "FINISHED" instead of to "SEEDING"  I have to highlight the files I wish to seed, and click on "FORCE START".   I don't know why some files automatically seed and don't seed.  It seems random.

I can’t help because mine have never done that.  I did get some help from someone once and he said that so long as they say seeding that’s fine. I downloading bike races like the Tour de France and I have a big seeding bonus so it must be working. It’s just that the darn computer is so slow to do anything and I have an issue with my monitor whic is also ancient. Evrry so often the screen size changes so it’s like the desktop is too big.  The only solution is to turn it off by pressing the power button because the start button is not visible!!  As it’s an intermittent problem, nobody can find the issue. I’d like to get a new monitor and computer but if it messes up my seeding then I will just put up with the old setup. I have had windows 10 installed on it so the operating system is new!
