    Hey All

    Thanks for stopping by. I am using the new version of uTorrent and hate the interface. Is there a way to change the downloads so it reads just the download information...? You download speeed and what not? It seems as though if I change it on one thing it changes it on the uploads section.

    Thanks

    qBittorrent - excellent alternative to uTorrent.

    I was a getting board with utorrent, and annoyed of the little additions being added here and there. Also each new version seemed to slow your down if you were a little tight with the upload. No matter what settings i changed. qBittorrent all the way for me, glad i found it. www.qbittorrent.org

    the alternative i found was usenet i know, not free, but it seems to be easier once you get all the pieces n place (usenet - i got theusenet.com, newzbin.com and grabit) then you can download w/o anyone knowing and traking. just make sure to get ssl

    I used that once or twice before. I wasnt a big fan but thanks for the suggestion. I am trying qbitorrent now and i really dont like the way you cant set it up for a speed test to test your settings but so far so good.

    i've used a fair few torrent downloaders in my time some of the best ones like utorrent vuze all seem to of gotten slower with age.
    after playing about with linux i found a really good one which is transmision but i couldn't get that to work with windows 7, i then found qbittorrent which seems like a lite and i mean very lite version of utorrent.

    speaking of utorrent i thought i would give it a try again so i got version 3.1 things started fine then i was getting a disk overload error which slowed things down, after googling about it seems to be some sort of a bug in the new version of utorrent so i went back to version 2.2.1 and everything is sweet agian.

    So qbittorrent or utorrent 2.2.1 is a good safe bet imo
