uTorrent does that itself, goto Options> Preferences and tick the Add Firewall Exception box. If its already ticked, untick it and exit utorrent then start it back up and repeat the procedure.

If the ports still dont open, look at your adsl/cable router's firewall configuration.

Hey, what if there's that really annoying error that I can't seem to fix that is not allowing one to use the Advanced Settings?

Error is: MMC will not run with a version of IE earlier than Internet 5.5.

The problem being that I have IE8 that came with Win7 OS when I installed it.

A reply would be highly appreciated, thanks!

@samaiya - Can you provide some screen shots? If you fill in your System Specs, a lot of times that helps us find a problem too. - Thanks - WS

Hi, thank you for the reply. I'll attach the three screencaps I have. Both show MMC errors on two different things, and one shows my IE version.

System Specs:

CPU--AMD Phenom II X2 955 Calisto B.E
Video Card--ATI HD Radeon 5770
PSU--Corsair 550W
Mobo--Gigabyte 770TA-UD3
RAM--G.Skill Dual Channel 2x2GB DDR3
OS--Windows 7 Home Premium Edition

Try this: Add to this Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
and edit the Version Key. If it does not exist create it REG_SZ and enter anything that is above version 5.5.

You can set it to: 8.0.7600.16385 which is Internet Explorer 8 on Windows 7.

Typically one would use the Registry Editor to edit the Registry and make the change. However if you are not familiar with it or have never used it I created a .REG file. You need to be logged on as Administrator, or be using an Administrator account or use the Run As to add this file to the registry.

Just double click on it and answer yes.
