david_cujon Posted September 27, 2008 Report Share Posted September 27, 2008 Hi, I recently downloaded uTorrent from utorrent.com and soon after the initial set-up, a pop-up from AOL Spyware Protection alerted me that uTorrent was in fact a Trojan virus. I blocked uTorrent on AOL thinking it would not affect the operation of uTorrent on my PC but this was not the case at all - in fact, I observed little (less than 10kB/s) or no download speeds and on four occasions - completely unprevoked - uTorrent restarted, which forced me to go through the initial set-up process again. I later discovered during a scheduled scan by my anti-virus AVG that it had also detected the Trojan virus on my PC. At first, I believed that it was a coincidence and the Trojan was not related to my installation of uTorrent but when I uninstalled uTorrent, a full PC scan by AVG showed no threats. Upon re-installing uTorrent, once again AVG and AOL SP recognised it as the Trojan virus. How do I overcome these problems in the hope that I can also employ uTorrent as my torrent client (one day lol)? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks...
