No torrents downloading for me, please help


Recommended Posts

I have downloaded many a torrent using µTorrent before without a glitch. Today, after not using it for a few weeks I went to download a few but in the Status column it says 'downloading', but nothing is happening. I know of no setting I have changed since using it successfully, other that adding a file backup program that automatically backs up my data files to an XHD.

The download symbol on the left is red too.

I do know some stuff about computers, but am far from a whiz. Where should I start looking to find the problem.

'DHT Enabled' is not checked, nor am I able to check that box. Only the 'Initial Seeding' under the 'Other Setting' Heading in Properties is enabled, though not checked either.

I am a bit confused with that last link as to what torrent I am to try using.

That means the torrent is private, and your tracker is giving you an error. Looking at the error message would help figure out what's wrong more.

The last link is the OpenOffice download page. Download one of the torrents and load it. This is a test to see if it's your connection with a general connectivity problem or if the problem you're having with the "error" tracker status is specific to that torrent.

Two torrents finally downloaded, but the rest sit with a red download symbol. I can find no error in the General tab under Properties.

I also ran HiJack This, and do not understand what it all means. I do recognize a bunch of the programs it refers to though.
