Using uTorrent (write to disk error)

Post by alibeasley on Wed Nov 07, 2012 5:30 pm

I'm trying to download something for a game and I've been using uTorrent for over a year with no problems. When I went to download it, it would immediately say something along the lines of 'cannot write to disk: access denied' and when I was researching, I found that some people could change the compatibility settings to run for windows xp service pack 3. That didn't work for me. Some said they just updated their version of uTorrent and it worked. Didn't work for me. Some say restarting their computer worked. Not for me. I don't know what else to do. It worries me because there was one person who said uTorrent was denied access and it ended up being something about whatever they downloaded changed some kind of settings and they lost the ownership the computer. My computer also keeps having microsoft essentials popping up on the bottom saying the detected threats where handled. I don't know if that has anything to do with it.. I just hope I haven't ruined this computer. I've only had it for a few months.. scratch

//EDIT

Update: Now it's saying 'System cannot find path specified.'

Please edit you post rather then double posting.

If MSE is reporting viruses and such, I think you have more problems then just utorrent not wanting to save stuff.

Can you do a full scan with MSE, and remove all threats?

Yeah, it's normally a few hours, but after it's done, reboot, and check with utorrent again, see if it will download stuff.


Also, it's normally recommended to use a standard user account instead of admin account when using the internet, so it's harder for stuff to get downloaded, just have to type in your admin password whenever you want to install something, which my admin account password is quite short, so it's not too insane to repeat a lot.
