recently.reaped Posted August 12, 2010 Report Share Posted August 12, 2010 As of yesterday I've been unable to download or host torrents using uTorrent. I've been using uTorrent successfully for a year and have over 100 torrents being hosted or at least available when I opened up uTorrent yesterday to acquire a few new torrents.I did get a quick pop up asking if I wanted to update my uTorrent and I clicked yes but nothing happened that I could see.now I've tried changing the port randomly a dozen times and it's gone from ports in the 18,000's to the 50,000's and nothing has changed when I did that. I tried updating to 2.2 beta, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I have recently uninstalled the beta version and reinstalled 2.0.3The majority of my torrents are from a private site, but since I've been a member for over a year, I don't think that's the issue.I noticed that my McAfee icon has changed and it appears to have updated. It kept giving me a pop up saying my computer was at risk etc and when I checked it out it was because Windows firewall was turned off. Again this was yesterday so I tried turning the firewall on, back off etc etc and no luck. I've also tried a reboot with no luck either.Under tracker status it says 'An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by it access permission'Since I have recently reinstalled 2.0.3 I do believe the settings are the default. I have done a search on the listen port error, but didn't see anything that would help.I did read the suggestion to reset to the default but am not sure where to find the recommended file. When I go into C:program files/utorrent all I see is the utorrent icon and no other files.I am running Windows XP professional and have McAffee anti-virus and Ad-Aware running as well. None of that is new save for the changes to McAffee with kept on asking me to reboot this week for some reason. I have a copy of Nod32 and am seriously considering making the switch.HALP!!! this sux.
