"Local Socket" problem


Recommended Posts

Everytime I try to use uTorrent (or any other program, like Azureus, for example), I keep getting an error that says 'cannot get local socket'. It is very annoying, since it causes uTorrrent to freeze until I press the OK button, and it pops up again immediately after I press it. That means that in order for me to complete a download, I have to keep pressing the OK button over and over in order for data to actually stream in.

At first I thought it was a problem created by my firewall (I use Symantec), so I opened up some ports and that kind of stuff, but the problem just doesn't seem to go away. It even occurs when I disable my firewall. Any ideas as to what I should do?
