Hey I've been using BitTorrent for several months now and have never had any problems until I installed the 7.7 version. Since installing the update every torrent I download gets to about .5% then stops and the Error: Write to Disk Access Denied shows up. I have looked at other posts and tried changing the security settings on my downloads folder but it still doesn't work. My laptop has Windows 7 system. Please someone help me.

What user did you give full control to your downloads folder with?

Our server has had a long-standing misconfiguration for attaching files. Upload the image to somewhere like imageshack and link it here.
Do NOT use pdf.

Did you go into advanced and force ownership on the child objects?
Are you running BitTorrent as administrator? (You shouldn't be)

No I didn't change anything since the user already had full control. And what exactly do you mean by running BitTorrent as administrator?
