  3. utorrent folder location

    I have downloaded and presumably installed utorrent. I did go through the setup wizard. Although I chose a start-up menu and desktop shortcut, I did not get either one. utorrent will launch and I pinned the shortcut to the taskbar. Once I exit utorrent the taskbar shortcut disappears.

    Where is the utorrent folder located?

    I have, with utorrent running, looked into the Task Manager. utorrent is listed, but "Open File Location" and "Properties" don't work.

    I looked into the %appdata% folder and there is no utorrent folder in there either.

    I also went in Control Panel to the list of installed applications, and utorren is not listed.

    I have looked online for solutions, but so far nothing has worked. I cann't find where utorrent is installed. At this point, I would just like to uninstall it along with any crapware that may have come with it.

    If I didn't know better (and I'm not sure), I would think utorrent is actually running directly of the .exe file - if that is possible.

    Please help me find the utorrent folder and uninstall it and everything that may have come with it.

  4. Why can't I run utorrent.exe

    Is uTorrent really safe?

    I just downloaded uTorrent from their official website. After installation, the .exe file downloaded and installed 2 programs automatically and started them up.

    They were -

    1. Opera browser
    2. Avast free antivirus.
    After installation of the torrent browser it automatically opened up the settings and tried to change my default browser!

    I uninstalled them all along with uTorrent and did an antivirus scan where nothing was found.

    Now, my question is, How and why did uTorrent downloaded and installed this programs without my permission and tried to change my settings?

    Is it compromising our security and privacy?
