Download icon turning red almost immediately for every download...


Recommended Posts


I have been using uTorrent for a while and when I moved I am unable to get my downloads to start. I have used piratebay scrapetorrent and many others but am having the same problem.

The status icon turns to a red down arrow almost instantly and doesn't even begin the download. Here is two separate typical tracker status' I receive:

Name Status Update In Seeds Peers Downloaded

[DHT] waiting for announce...

[Local Peer Discovery] working

[Peer Exchange] working No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

If anyone can help me out with this it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

I have the Windows firewall and then I also have a Norton Internet Security turned on....my computer crashed a few weeks back and I had to reinstall the OS so I assume a lot of features were restored to default. The windows firewall has uTorrent added as an exception so that may not be the cause of the issue. What do you suggest?
