    Have Microsoft Banned the use of Torrent clients in window


    Hi all


    I am looking for a bit of help


    I have just installed a nice new fresh clean install of windows 8, so far most things are working fine, but. I cannot get any of the Torrent clients I use to work, in every case the client installs fine but when it comes to running it fails to load, if I look in task manager it is showing but it will not close from within task manager and the only way to end the stalled application is to do a re boot.


    Anyone else getting this issue or is there a known fix for it.


    Thanks for any help

    uTorrent works for me just fine when I've needed to use it, can't say I've tried anything else though. I can't see Microsoft getting by with blocking any particular app and not getting the pants sued off them, so it's most likely something to do with your system.

    Thanks guys

    Turned out to be my security software F_Secure, as soon as I disabled it all the Torrent software sprang into life as if by magic.

    F_Secure is fail IMO. Of course everyone is entitled to use what they know and are used to, but I've never had a problem using MSE (Now integrated with Windows Defender) + MalwareBytes.

    I was just moving some files from a to b and MSE was finding a couple of nasties that Kaspersky never found so MSE is pretty good!

    I've used MSE (and Malwarebytes) since it came out and have not had any security issues.
