  1. You should Backup your router's settings. Log into your router using a browser. Depending on your router, the address could be... ...or something very similar. Check the on the router itself for the login credentials, but the defaults are usually: username = admin / password = password. There should be an option to Backup/export your router's settings to file. Then if something goes wrong, you can restore the settings from that file.
  2. Read this (it applies to both ĀµTorrent/BitTorrent): https://forum.utorrent.com/topic/106824-utorrent-starting-up-on-its-own/?do=findComment&comment=525098
  3. You can add their IP to an ipfilter.dat file to block them. Create a text file. Add their IP address to it (1 entry per line). Save it as ipfilter.dat & place it in BitTorrent's data folder. Restart BitTorrent for it to take effect. To add additional entries at a later date, change extension .dat to .txt. Your text editor (e.g. Notepad) should open the file. When done, save. Change extension back from .txt to .dat. Restart BitTorrent if it was running during the changes being made. Look under the Peers tab to find the IPs. Right-click under the Peers window field & uncheck Resolve IPs to see the IP. You can right-click on it to copy (then paste). You can find information on most of those entries here: https://www.netcheif.com/Articles/uTorrent/html/AppendixA_02_12.html The entries relate to both ĀµTorrent & BitTorrent clients.
  4. @sverremunthe Try changing bt.sequential_downloaded = true. To access this hidden option: Open Preferences. Click Advanced. Click Cancel. Press & hold the Shift+F2 keys whilst opening the Preferences again.
  5. Do the settings from the Setup Guide help? (Options>Setup Guide / ctrl+G)
  6. Don't trust "Check for Updates". It can be hit & miss at the best of times. You can see the latest build & changelog here: http://blog.bittorrent.com/releases/windows/ Download the latest build from here: https://www.bittorrent.com/downloads/win
  7. If you're using Windows 10, I'm sure I read that programs running before the PC is shutdown were automatically started again when the PC is booted up. So regarding BitTorrent, un-checking the "Start BitTorrent when Windows Starts" option won't make the slightest bit of difference if the program is running when PC is shutdown. If this is the case, the only solution is to Exit BitTorrent before shutting down the PC.
  8. Try this one: http://download-01.utorrent.com/uuid/bafd4502-33a8-4ce4-9720-2183638e4281 These both work also: http://download-lb.utorrent.com/endpoint/bittorrent/os/windows/track/stable http://download-new.utorrent.com/endpoint/bittorrent/os/windows/track/stable/
  9. If the sidebar is not showing, press the F7 key. The torrent in question could be under Labels>Hidden.
  10. The current build is - although updating might not make any difference...

    7.9 Stable

    Why is this thread no longer updated with new releases...? The latest version is magnet:?xt=urn:btih:850A331DB0E99BE6845F0FC6E9FC092F5812A134 File size: 1.66 MB (1,746,368 bytes) / MD5: 72EA6DAAF08109331F53DAC82B8C980F (Edited: 15 November 2018 to update latest build).
  12. Private message me a magnet link to the torrent and I'll try it (right click active torrent>Copy Magnet URI, paste it into message). If one person has 100%, you should be able to download the whole thing.
  13. Try this: Switch to another tab, then close BitTorrent (File>Exit). Only when BitTorrent has exited (check in Task Manager), relaunch it. Switch to your preferred Tab and minimise BitTorrent. Now add a torrent or maximise it. Did that help? If not, it's possible the gui.last_overview_tab setting (found only in settings.dat file) is/has become corrupt. Does starting off with an empty settings.dat file fix the problem for you? It should do The file settings.dat is normally found in BitTorrent's application data folder. Exit BitTorrent first. Back up both settings.dat & settings.dat.old first - either move them to another folder, or zip/rar them both then delete them. To create an empty settings.dat file, simply create a text document and name it settings.dat (with .dat being the file extension). It's worth pointing out that using an empty settings.dat file will lose all your customisations hence backing them up. Launch BitTorrent. Is Speed tab being remembered correctly now?
  14. You can turn all the advertising rubbish off in the advanced settings (Preferences>Advanced) like this:
