NumberNine Posted January 29, 2008 Report Share Posted January 29, 2008 Issue: After seeing a horrific post on another site I have some questions regarding privacy:Is it true that Utorrent logs every download that you have ever attempted and/or completed? Also, it appears that these logs are kept even after uninstalling and/or re-installing the program! So, how do I clear/delete any of these logs so they can't be retrieved? Assume a very high Paranoia Factor*.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hi Everyone,New to Utorrent and file sharing but not my first time at the rodeo!Yes, I've read the Instructions and FAQs at the Utorrent website and the 'Rules' for this forum. So, please assume that I've done steps 1, 2 and 3 of any preliminary trouble shooting.In addition, I've searched this and other forums plus Google but the information I have found either does not apply or is over my head [sometimes I need a little hand-holding]. I'm comfortable with editing the Registry and the Command Line.Any information or help will be greatly appreciated and I welcome any question, comments, suggestions or concerns.Thanks,NN~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~PC: AMD 2.0 GHz w/ 2 GB RamModem: Siemens SpeedStream DSL-6520OS: Win XP SP 2Apps: Utorrent 1.7.6, PeerGuardian, Firefox, Trillian, SkypeProtection: Ad-Aware, AntiVir, Avast, SnoopFree, Spybot, Spyware Guard, Spyware Blaster, Zone Alarm, Grisoft: Anti-Spyware, Virus & RootkitOS, Programs, Utilities and all other non Utorrent related Applications are legal, up to date and patchedTCP/IP Patched to 50Port Forwarded and I have a Green Circle~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Utorrent Settings [Changed Per Instructions, FAQs & Forum Posts]Downloads:Append - UncheckedPreallocate - CheckedPrevent Standby - CheckedConnection:Upload - 0Download - 0Bittorrent:Global Max - 400Peers - 70Slots - 2Additional Slots - UncheckedAdditional Features - All CheckedEncryption - ForcedLegacy Connections - UncheckedQueueing:Active Torrents - 1Active Downloads - 1Seed While Ratio - 150%Seeding Tasks - UncheckedSeeding Goal - UncheckedOther:Nothing CheckedAdvanced:net.max_halfopen - 50peer.lazy_bitfield - Truepeer.resolve_country - FalseDisc Cache:Override - Checked 50 MBReduce Memory - CheckedAdvanced Cache Settings - All Checked~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* Paranoia Factor of 10 out of 10!Examples: Angry Wife, Sea Eye Aye, Jealous Boyfriend, Men in Black, Ambitious Co-Worker, Nosey Neighbor, Suspicious Boss, Crazy Roommate, et cetera.
