  1. Slow download

    Do the settings from the Setup Guide help? (Options>Setup Guide / ctrl+G)
  2. 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
  3. You don't have the latest build.
  4. BitTorrent opens by itself at startup

    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.
  5. cant download bittorrent software

    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/
  6. deleted .torrent file wont show in client

    If the sidebar is not showing, press the F7 key. The torrent in question could be under Labels>Hidden.
  7. Bittorrent Crashing After 10 Seconds - Mac Help

    The current build is - although updating might not make any difference...
  8. 7.9 Stable

    Why is this thread no longer updated with new releases? The latest version is magnet:?xt=urn:btih:98F24A2A5BF6F2A0A40972694F71BEC2061B6965 (Edited 210618 to update version number).
  9. What Does The Different Collumns Tell Me?

    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.
  10. Won't Stay On A Specific Tab

    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?
  11. Add Idea

    You can turn all the advertising rubbish off in the advanced settings (Preferences>Advanced) like this:
  12. How To Revert Back To Previous Build

    Try this... First make sure BitTorrent is not running, so exit the program. Go into the installation folder where BitTorrent.exe resides (runs from) and rename it BitTorrent.exe.bak (or whatever). Copy & paste your earlier version into this folder and rename it BitTorrent.exe Then launch BitTorrent. Depending on your set up, BitTorrent will either go through the install process (asking you to downgrade), or the program will launch immediately.
  13. Newbie Needing Helping

    Try using the search box within BitTorrent itself (near the top right of screen). Type in whatever you're looking for including the word torrent at the end. Hit the return key to search. A browser window will open showing some results. Then go from there Alternatively, if you don't wish to use the search function within BitTorrent, do the same thing via a search engine.
