If it were my computer using utorrents
I would run an antivirus scan
Then download and run malwarebytes. Update MB before use and do the full scan.

Whenever I hear utorrents the first thing that I think of is virus etc. If you do not agree there is no need to scan.

You can't forget that the dl/speed has not so much to do with your machine but with the following factors:
How well is the torrent in question seeded.
And how much Upload bandwith are the seeders allowing.
I haven't done torrents for at least 2, 3 years now but down then it mattered how much upload I gave.

I recently got a new PC with Windows 7. I can't seem to download any programs I want such as Ad Aware and a few others. When I click download a large arrow moves from top to bottom on the left side of the screen but nothing else happens. What's happening? Thanks. Hal.
