associated helper application does not exist error


Recommended Posts

Whenever I try to download a torrent from the web I get the following error:

download error

"c:\users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\Napalm_Death_Pack.torrent could not be opened, because the associated helper application does not exist. Change the association in your preferences."

I recently had to change the file association for *.torrent files to UTorrent from adobe acrobat reader because when i first loaded utorrent on my machine it would automatically try to open torrents in acrobat. I have no idea why this happened and assumed it was one of the *cough* wonderful "features" of Vista.

I also used the association button in the utorrent preferences section too.. and this didnt make a difference

I should add Im using version 1.6.1

Even tho Ive changed the file association back to utorrent im still getting this error and I have no idea how to fix it.

I may be being extremely dim here and missing something obvious but I'd appreciate some help with this.

thanks :)

**edit* It seems I can add torrents via url but not access them by using the download torrent button...
