You might try a different bitorrent client and see if you have better luck.

Are you in a school or company? If it is a personal computer you could be infected with malware.

How often do you download from torrents? Why?

Torrents are a great way to get infected. Especially if you are using them for things that are not exactly legal.

Download DDS:

DDS.com

Save the file to your pc. Then open the dds icon to run the tool.
When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
DDS.txt
Attach.txt

Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post by using the paperclip

What a terrible response to the question. It is not your place, andrew129260, to question someones reason. If you do not know the answer, then don't respond with your idea of what or what not he should be doing.

By the way, I have the same issue and I have not figured it out yet. But when I do I will post here.

Hello and welcome, @dcol:

This is a pretty old thread (2 years), so the OP may no longer be following it.

Having said that, @andrew129260's reply was spot-on.

Torrents present can both legality/intellectual property/piracy issues and malware issues.
That is why many system administrators may justifiably block the use of such software.

If you are on a domain or some other official network (work, school, government, business, etc.), then there may not be a legal way to bypass that block.

Alternatively, as Andrew also suggested, if you think you might be infected (based on the permissions issues), then deeper work will be needed (e.g. diagnostic logs and cleanup), either here or at a dedicated computer disinfection forum.

Thank you,

MM

problem turned out to be CryptoPrevent, which blocks utorrent access. Not a virus. The last thing a virus is going to do is block torrents.
Ok for pointing out the hazards of utorrent, but it would be nice if you responded with an answer instead of a daddy observation.
Most people know the risk of torrents, some of us use torrents as a way to get tools and patches not found elsewhere. Or copies of software we may have lost or misplaced. Yes, many people download illegal stuff, but its not for us to make a judgement call on that or preach morality on others you do not know.

Perhaps you misconstrue?
Neither of us was/is preaching.
Merely pointing out known risks associated with P2P/torrents and WHY a system admin might block such software.
Our replies are intended to inform not only the OP or someone else posting in the thread, but also anyone else who might read this thread, either as a forum member or as a guest. Not everyone who browses computer help forums is an advanced, informed user.

Also, for the record, this forum has a zero-tolerance policy for piracy. (I am not implying or suggesting that you or the OP did anything illegal. Just pointing it out for informational purposes.)
And, for the record, >95% of today's malware is NON-VIRAL. So, yes, you are correct, a "virus" would not likely block P2P software. If anything, it would be some sort of non-viral malware changing permissions on the system.

Without having seen diagnostic logs from either you or from the OP, however, we here in the forum could not possibly have known what 3rd-party software -- such as CryptoPrevent -- might have been installed on the system.

In any event, we're glad you were able to resolve your issue.
Thanks for letting us know.

Take care,
MM

Well that solved it. I remember installing cryptoprevent on my laptop just days before posting this thread. Thank you

Just to add that I get a similar message (not exactly the same) for anything I blocked myself under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\
