    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.

    Is there also a way to filter out peers/seeders that has very low speeds?

    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).

    And is there a place where all these fields are explained?

    You can find information on most of those entries here:


    The entries relate to both µTorrent & BitTorrent clients.

    Has anyone found a solution for this problem of BitTorrent starting on windows startup when it is not supposed to?

    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.


  4. Why is this thread no longer updated with new releases...?

    The latest version is


    File size: 1.66 MB (1,746,368 bytes) / MD5: 72EA6DAAF08109331F53DAC82B8C980F

    (Edited: 15 November 2018 to update latest build).

  5. 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?

  6. Is this possible?


    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.

  7. I cant even find a search box to type in the video.



    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.
