My life is complete now, I have seen it all!

For those other members and guest on the Seven Forums possibly reading this thread in the future: Sad but true is torrents are mostly used for distributing illegal, pirated software, music and videos and they very often include unwanted hidden elements.

Because their popularity they are widely used for distributing malware. A user downloading a torrent might not notice it also includes elements he did not ask to be downloaded. When downloading, the user is also at the same time seeding (uploading) his torrents to other torrent users. This means that the same malware present in his downloaded torrent will continue its journey to other users computers. In fact this might be the reason for the OP's issue, NOD32 checking the outbound traffic and noticing it contains something that is classified as malware.

Here at the Seven Forums we do not accept software piracy, and when a case is clear we do also not help. Issues with torrents and torrent clients are to us a bit difficult because although almost all torrents today are mostly illegal and unlicensed cracks of copyrighted material, also legal material is available as torrents to some extent.

To the OP: Do not in any circumstances disable your AV and firewall, leaving your PC totally unprotected. Check the settings of your torrent client, AV and firewall to allow the traffic you want to.

Hi SAE90. Have you still got a problem? If so can you say how you upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 and would you prefer to go back to Windows 7?

You said earlier "After I download a torrent and i make uploade my pc freeze". You have in all probability downloaded malware onto your system. This is your problem for using a torrent download! i suggest you do a clean install of Windows 7 and have nothing to do with torrent downloads in the future!
