Utorrent reinstalls when I download any file

Recommended Posts

Whenever I attempt to download any file uTorrent will attempt to reinstall the software.  I have the program installed and open in front of me.  I am the only one who uses this computer, I have admin rights and have even installed as admin (right click, run as admin).  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you.

Uninstall everything, put the exe + an empty settings.dat file together anywhere and try again.

Where did you install it? Default or user changed? And what A/V are you using. And when installed did you get a confirmation box saying it?

@PiusX I installed it to the default location as I have with every other PC I have owned.  This PC is actually my old setup with a fresh Windows install that I gave to a friend when I upgraded.  I had zero issues with the program when I had the PC.

@rafi I tried uninstalling it and deleting the settings.dat file when I found that suggestion in a forum.  I have had the same issue with bittorrent and utorrent and tried that same fix for both.
