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?
Hi, I just updated bit torrent today (7.9.2). Now when I try to download a torrent, I get a popup from Winpatrol that bit torrent is trying to make BitTorrent.exe a startup program. If I reject the change it closes Bit Torrent. Is it now impossible to run the program without having it automatically launch at startup? Thanks, Chris
