Problems with uTorrent and Windows Vista


Recommended Posts

Hi there.

I have been running utorrent without any problems on Windows XP for as long as can remember. However, after purchasing a new laptop yesterday with Windows Vista as the operating system, utorrent will no longer download torrents. The program installed and loaded up perfectly, however whenever I select a torrent to download, after just a few seconds the little blue arrow turns red, points downwards and nothing happens. The download and upload speed stays at 0.0 k\s. I have tried this with several torrents, so I am pretty sure that it is not the case that the torrents I have chosen are faulty or corrupted in any way.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated, thanks a lot, Tom.

The tracker status is as follows:-









I have tried the testing torrent but that also does not work.

I am using the latest version of Norton antivirus, including the Norton Firewall.

Still can't get utorrent working, even after following the instructions on that help page.

I don't have bitdefender so that's not relevant.

I have allowed my firewall to access utorrent, and when that didn't work I even tried turning my firewall off temporarily, but utorrent still wouldn't work.

How would I update my network card? That appears to be the only option left from that page. However, seeing as my laptop is only a few days old it would seem surprising if my NIC was 'buggy'.

Thanks again.
