UTorrent error problems


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if these problems have been addressed before or if anyone has posted a thread about them or not, because I'm not going to flip through 500+ pages of threads just to see if.. well blah blah blah, here's the problems I've been having..

Problem #1

I'll start off by saying I'm not a new user to the Utorrent client.

I started with an old version of the client and upgraded to the most recent.

I'm not sure if it's a patching problem or what, but when I'm downloading torrents, a lot of the time, it displays error messages from the Utorrent system tray icon saying "File: (torrent file name) The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process" and it immediately stops the information transfer.

when I open up the Utorrent Client again to reconnect the transfer in the status bar it says the same thing "Error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."

it never used to do this.

it shouldn't be a seeding problem because I always make sure the torrent I download is of good quality with plenty of seeds and as little leechers as possible.

I myself seed, and keep the upload and download limits set at Unlimited at all times, and only download one torrent at a time, to increase dedicated bandwidth.

for instance the torrent I'm downloading currently I cannot give you the specifics of because it is against the T.O.S to post such information, but I can give you these details.

File Name: *******

Size: 705 Mb

Seeds: 65

Peers: 54

when it does work, which in most cases is for a very short time, I do get decent speeds averaging around 45 kbs - 79 kbs depending on the seeds, peers and availability.

I doubt it's a network problem, because as I said, it's worked perfectly in the past.

If it matters, I'm using a Dell 1420 laptop with a dual core processor, and broadband "cable" internet.

any information to address this problem would be really helpfull, I really enjoy Utorrent and it's easy interface.

I don't want to have to switch to some other shady T-Client, because I know full well, that this one SHOULD work perfect for everything I want.

Problem #2

Another problem I have been having (which isn't really a BIG problem but it is kind of annoying) is when downloading a fresh torrent file, I have to open the torrent file manually, in order to get the list of what I want, and do not want from the files included in the torrent.

It could be a browser problem, because I have recently upgraded from Firefox 2 to Google Chrome.

I'm just assuming that this is the cause of the problem, but if not, I would like to know of any remedies.

Problem #3

I cannot seem to browse for torrents directly from the client anymore.

when I Downloaded the client it came with preset search engines, like mininova, Pirate bay ect.

now I have to directly go to their pages to browse for files.

which isn't a big problem either, but I figure if anyone knows the answer to it, it would hurt to ask.

If anyone could help with any of the aforementioned problems I would greatly appreciate it, be it advice from a user, or a Admin.

The SEARCH function exists at this forum precisely so you don't HAVE to read through 500+ posts.

Your problem is simple, software on your computer is blocking uTorrent from working.

Remove offending software...probably Nero Scout, Roxio, or a file/media indexer.

...It could also remotely be an issue with Windows access permissions.
