Windows 7: Having trouble with torrent software

Having trouble with torrent software

uTorrent stopped working, and then started working again. It again stopped working, and I've waited but it doesn't seem to work again and when I open it the latest download is paused at 80% and since then no progress has been made on any of the torrents.

1. So I downloaded qBittorent because I read it was the fastest. But the thing with this was that when I downloaded the torrent files on Firefox, when I clicked on the torrent file name in the download box, it didn't transfer over to the qBittorrent window. So I had to do CTRL+O and choose the files from the Download folder. How can I make it so that when I click on the download, it automatically opens on the qB window instead of me having to choose the files after pressing CTRL+O?

2. And when I click on the torrent file on a certain torrent site, it pops up at uTorrent, without downloading first into Firefox. So how can I make it so that the uTorrent doesn't pop up and make the torrent file download instead of opening automatically without downloading?

Hi there!
I don't use torrent but your problem was just like mine. I downloaded 2 test files of 12MB and 84MB size using Chrome and IE. Every time, both stopped at 29%, then using FF I achieved 60% before stopping. The download is paused at certain percentile and since then stopped completely. I emailed my ISP and they done the test without problems.

Use sfc/scannow to check your Win 7 before it completely Not Responding.
