uT 3.3.1 Beta 29213 - diskio.mark_of_the_web not working? ( +ReadOnly)


Recommended Posts

I had troubles with the memory leak in the first uTorrent 3.3 stable (28993),

but since I liked the "search in your torrents) feature,

I found an older beta that I used for a while..

- I believe it was build 28910 or 28918.

Then later, I installed uTorrent 3.3.1 Beta build 29213,

which is the one I use now.

It is working very nice, but I have two issues:

1) The "diskio.mark_of_the_web" setting does not work anymore.

For all zip, rar, exe and dll files, I will get the Alternate Data Stream called "Zone.Identifier:$DATA" with


- the thing that makes the "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer" in the file properties, and which gives you either the


"Do you want to run this file?"

or the


"The publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software?"

No matter if the "diskio.mark_of_the_web" setting i set to "false" or "true" (default),

I will get these ADS'es.

2) All files, no matter what filetype, will have the "Read Only" attribute set.

Is this intentional, and if so, is there a setting to turn this feature off again?

BTW, I am running Windows 7 SP1 x64, with all updates.

Preferences -> Advanced -> bt.read_only_on_complete

Ah, I see, there it is..! Thank you very much! :)

Contrary to what I actually wrote, I assumed it was a bug,

so I only looked halfheartedly among the diskio.* entries..
