  1. I am using BitTorrent 7.10.5, build 45272, but this problem exists in previous versions. In the General Preferences, I have deselected "Start BitTorrent when Windows Starts" I have also checked my Windows 10 settings for StartupApps, and BitTorrent does not show up there. I have checked C:\Users\ERIC\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and BitTorrent does not startup there either. However, whenever I restart my Windows 10 system and login, the BitTorrent client is running, seeding, and uploading file. I cannot stress enough how serious a defect this is. Typically only Malware is self-starting like this, leaving little or no trace in the system of how it starts. Is this simply a defect, or is BitTorrent intentionally designed to be Malware? I am hoping there is some innocent explanation, such as, is something else in the system starting up BitTorrent because of the associations?
  2. I have been hearing more and more about internet cache protocols lately and was wondering if BitTorrent had plans to enter this field. Given that people so often download the same content over and over again, it seems to make sense that internet carriers should do content caching so the same content is not downloaded over and over again via backbone networks. I mean, many ISPs already cache newsnet stuff. I have often thought that BitTorrent would be the perfect technology for caching this way, kind of like BitTorrent Sync at router/gateway level. This would be especially valuble for Metropolitan Area Networks. Anyway, I was just curious if anyone else has been thinking about this? Cheers, Eric
