Having to force to start downloading

I am also having the same problem that the OP describes, but I feel I can be more descriptive and share screenshots a little better.

Main window - http://i.imgur.com/qKKG9.jpg

I'm running Win7 64 with utorrent 2.2.1, I noticed the problem even after a fresh install with default settings. I tweaked some of the settings (anything that looked relevant) and everything still starts queued (though I can force start them). Just before the above screenshot I enabled the "show a window that displays the files inside the torrent" option, and inside that pop-up window the box is checked for "start torrent", I hit OK, and it's queued. Under "UI settings" subsection "when adding torrents" the check box "don't start the download automatically" is not checked.

Let me know if you need more info or screenshots, and I appreciate any help.

To help you a bit with screenshots, try this:

1. Select the uTorrent window.

2. Hold down Alt and press the print screen button. This snaps a picture of just that window. If you want to take a picture of the whole screen, just print screen is fine.

3. Open Paint.

4. Paste (either via ctrl+v or the edit -> paste option)

5. Save somewhere you can find it and give it a name.

6. Go to http://imgur.com/ and upload

7. Copy one of the share links on the left side.

8. Paste the link here and profit!

cm83, yours is not the same issue as is going on in the thread. Take a look at preferences - bandwidth.

Nice! That fixed it, thanks for the tip DreadWingKnight. I'm a little sad I didn't notice that myself :( Now the next question is... why was that enabled by default?
