External Protocol Request, µTorrent 1.6


Recommended Posts

Since three days I cannot download anything. Just get a message window 'External Protocol Request', with the option of either 'Launch application' or 'Cancel'.

The message says: An external application must be launched to handle file: links. Requested link: file:///G:/Downloads%20in%20Firefox........ .torrent.

Neither 'Launch application' nor 'Cancel' does anything.

This problems started roughly at the time when I installed PeerGuardian 2. I uninstalled PG2 but this does not make a difference.

I am running McAfee Personal Firewall Plus, with µTorrent shown as 'Allow Full Access'. My OS is Windows XP Pro.

Any hint would be appreciated. Wilfried
