Hello peacepod,

Double check to see if Bittorrent is set as the default program for your .torrent file types.

Default Programs - Set a Program's Default Associations

OR

Default Programs - Associate a File Type or Protocol

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Right click on the icon and choose properties.

Select shortcut tab and then click on Change icon button.

Choose the suitable icon and press OK.

Is it helpful?
