Why Does Utorrentie.exe Run When I Run Bitorrent.exe?

7 posts in this topic

Alot of places online say its malware.

 

...and an official response over in the separate uTorrent forums, says it's not and also describes its actual purpose.

In this "official response", When IE is mentioned we speaks about Internet Explorer the web navigator? If it's, I need utorrentie.exe if I use Mozilla webrowser? It's possible to avoid utorrentie?

Thanks in advance

BitTorrent's advertising runs in the internet explorer rendering engine regardless of what browser you use for day to day.

Mr Feit,

I have recently been hit with the utorrentie.exe that uploads or incorporates numerous Malware Trojans that proliferate during uTorrent Startup and ONLY during uTorrent startup and it occurs with BitTorrent all latest versions I have to go back to uTorretn 3.4.2 beta Build 33206 to get a clean launch.  Various versions of uTorrent and BitTorrent introduce different versions of malware suggesting  multiple penetrations of your distribution server.  uTorrentie.exe is the SOLE source of these infections.

IDP.Generic is a heuristic analysis hit based on incomplete information.

Garmin Express is nothing to do with us.

OpenCandy is an opt-out component of install.

I'm getting someone to deal with the flash ads.
