Unable to download index.html from ...


Recommended Posts


I installed uTorrent 3.3.2 and in the beginning everything is OK.

This was a fresh install.

I just had backedup the uTorrent folder from previous Windows installations.

So after I installed uTorrent fresh, I copied back the uTorrent folder to the new:


Then again everything was OK in the start.

But now after some uTorrent usage, I am having the following issue:

When I start uTorrent, the uTorrent program window appears but also there are 2 identical windows that pop-up. The titles of the windows are:

Web Browser

and the text that is displayed in the windows is:

"Unable to download index.html from ...XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Unable to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."

where X are some arbitrary capital letters and numbers.

Also those Xs are exactly the same for both windows.

And I report that this happens also when I am adding a new torrent in the Add new torrent window.

Please can you help me resolve this issue, so that the windows do not pop up anymore?

We are lucky as I found the solution to this problem.

Also i had completely forgotten that I had posted this problem here and luckily I saw it in my email upon reply from you.

The problem was broader, and it contained various other "bugs" in Windows, including this one in uTorrent.


You need to uninstall the following Windows Update:

Security Update for Internet Explorer 8 for Windows 7 (KB2847204)

You can either restore your system using System Restore, to one Restore Point before the installation of this Update.

Or you can just go to Control Panel->Windows Update->Installed Updates.

And then find the above Windows Update and uninstall it.

I hope this works for you as it worked for me.


PS: The other "bugs" that I found in Windows7 which occured after installation of the above Update are the following:

1. The Help And Support in Start Menu, shows a similar Window as the one in uTorrent.

2. The Internet Options in Control Panel does not open when clicked.

3. When trying to open a .chm file, a window pops up saying:

"The ordinal 459 could not be located in the dynamic link library urlmon.dll."

and when closed, other same windows appear some times.
