    "Never downloaded the crappy destructive organism"

    July 18, 2015  |   By cnet6364

    Version: uTorrent 3.4.3

    Pros

    You don't have to want it to get it and once you get it, you can't get rid of it because no matter how many time you delete it, it shows back up.

    Cons

    I don't even have to look to see if it has reloaded itself on my computer, when it downloads in the background, my computer freezes up. When I emailed their customer support about how to stop this lunacy, I got an email saying that customer support was only for subscribers.

    Summary

    I want to take this program and shove it down their throats. If there is a way to stop this program from infecting my computer, please let me know.

    "CNET should ban it"

    July 11, 2015  |   By perspectivesincorporated

    Version: uTorrent 3.4.3

    Pros

    it will download a torrent.

    Cons

    bundled with crap. No uninstaller. Attempts to connect to the internet even when closed and don't start with Windows is selected.

    Summary

    This is the worst kind of software out there. I only downloaded it because I needed a Windows iso. I wasn't trying to be a crook. Just needed an iso to make a Windows disc to do a clean reinstall of my operating system without all the junk that recovery discs or recovery partitions gladly reinstall. During the installation of utorrent, what I got was a lot of prompts to install crap. Pay attention. I did and didn't install any of the bundled BS. What I did do was allow it to make exceptions for windows firewall because that seemed to be necessary. It installed and I opened it. Lots and lots of ads are part of the interface. It did function, though, and downloaded the iso I needed. I closed the program. Shortly thereafter zonealarm firewall tells me that utorrent is trying to connect to the internet. That happens more than once. That inspires me to uninstall utorrent. Guess what? Yeah...you can't. Luckily, I have experience as a comp tech. I force the uninstall of this pile of junk using a tool designed to yank this kind of crap out of your system. My recommendation: Pass on this. I'd also consider passing on cnet as long as they continue to offer downloads like this.
