Odd error when trying to run the download of a file from uTorrent.


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I've just put this on my PC, I can use it fine on the other PC we have in the house. I select which file I want to download, when I then open it to download it, it comes up with this error :

An external application must be launched to handle file :links.

Requested link :

file:///C:/Documents and settings blah blah (massive link with symbols etc)

Application : file

If you were not expecting this request it may be an attempt to exploit a weakness in that other program.

Then it gives me 2 options : Launch Application, or Cancel.

I'm not sure why this is happening, I'm not doing anything differently than I do on the the PC which seems to work fine. This is on every single file I try to do.
