"the whole universe knows that utorrent is freeware ! if you paid for it you r a TOTAL idiot and DEFINETLY have been scammed.."

is displayed always on startup the first time after a reboot on windows 7 ultimate x64.

i tried always run as administrator, i tried turning off UAC, compatibility set to xp sp3 without any gain.

i have a desktop with with XP pro sp3 and a laptop with windows 7 factory installed. i copied all the %appdata%\utorrent

files from the desktop to a directory in the laptop with utorrent.exe

i like downloading larger files on the laptop (because downloads dont stop even if a power cut takes place for a few hours,

occurs very frequent in my country, but if the battery runs out or my younger brother starts-uses the laptop to play games

it gets stuck at the message screen unless clicked on ok)

im using bugmenot 2 post this. my 3 earlier posts were to thank admin for explaining port-forwarding, web-ui team for web-ui

and telling fireon that nforce firewalls were better left not installed.

i read a few closed posts about the same issue. pls help me if u can

anywayz even if you dont want to fix it i still always be using utorrent, its juz sweet

the first line was a joke , but seriously the "u've been scammed" popup comes out ONE time everytime i start the laptop, if i exit utorrent and start it again without shutting down then popup does'nt come

BUT if i shutdown and turn it on again or restart the popup is shown once again for a single time.

i tried what admin said step by step but no use :( plus

! deleted the old utorrent folder and downloaded utorrent, installed it new (normally without pasting settings.dat etc from desktop's utorrent) but same popup (at startup)

i wonder if other people are having this problem in windows 7?

thanx for replying

maybe my system has an issue.. if nobody else in the forum is seeing "popups" in windows 7 ultimate x64 then i must live with it.

i mostly use a PPPoE internet connection. but i dont think pppoe has anything to do with the popup because it doesnt

matter how i connect - pppoe, vpn, wifi ap, gprs/edge phone, 3G card OR offline without any wires/wifi switch off OR no network adapters installed.

the popup comes out at windows startup when utorrent is set to autostart and you have to click OK to continue.

this never happens in xp

I was getting that as well (uTorrent 1.8.2), which caught me completely off guard because I didn't do any updates recently. However, after closing the program via the context menu - then opening it again - it seems to have gone away, even after a reboot. Also running Windows 7 x64, and not installing uTorrent (simply running from download location).

What I'd like to know, is why this message popped up at all, when "check for updates" is completely disabled? I don't appreciate updates being "pushed" to my computer without my consent.

Because I never bothered to update it. It was working fine, so I didn't see any point in changing it. Not to mention that I don't use it very often, anyway.

Would you mind answering my question, though? How did an update come through when I explicitly unchecked "check for updates"?

Perhaps because I've never seen it before? If it's always been there, why have I only recently seen it?

I'm not trying to be argumentative, but I am trying to understand. I just want to know that I'm not going to get stuff pushed to my computer, through your software, without my consent.

I get this message on every reboot, and its SUPER annoying because its a pop-under message with no way of finding it unless you minimize all your other windows and look for it.

I often think I've started utorrent before I go out, but when I get back, I see that stupid god damned message again, and nothing has been downloaded.

Please put an option in to disable it, or at least make it function properly! Clearly a lot of people are having this problem, and I have it on several systems.

I'm on W7 64, with the latest stable release of utorrent; 2.0.2.

Edit: Also got this account from bugmenot, so don't judge based on previous posts.

I think your startup link to uTorrent is pointing to the DOWNLOADED uTorrent setup file and not the INSTALLED uTorrent executable.

If uTorrent is installed for on a comp and started for the first time, then you get that message. And uTorrent installs and runs everytime you run the SETUP file. So it think its a new install and displays the message.

Try changing the shortcut on the startup folder to point to the Program Files uTorrent executable.

The message will not be optional because then scam sites (that might try to sell you µtorrent) will be able to disable it.

Check what gladson1976 said.

You can also try to run it once as admin, then click the message away and then properly close µtorrent.

Try run it as Admin? so you dont really have a clue what the hell is happening?

Is Utorrent community so afraid that someone relly gone try to sell it? this is so stupid.

maybe that the problem will be big enough so Utorrent community will see that other torrent programs will gain bigger market.

If the Utorrent "Maste Wannabes" dosent want to see the problem...

OK, I get what you're talking about, but please don't be so rude by saying, "the whole universe knows that utorrent is freeware ! if you paid for it you r a TOTAL idiot."That's not very nice... Technorabbit :-)
