Re: Uploads when only seeding are rare and slow

Despite your assertion, you will overall get much better upload with your port forwarded. Beyond that, this is very normal behavior in torrents. One of two things is likely happening, neither of which is a "fixable" problem. First, there are enough seeds, so your upload is simply not neede...

Re: Is the adware still present in this version of torrent?

I have never once seen an ad in qbt. Ever. Sounds like you downloaded something you shouldn't have, or used an unofficial malware version of the qbt ap.

Re: Torrents get deleted

Sounds like overly aggressive security/cleaning on your computer. Are you administrator? A work system? Do you have a cleaner program, such as CC cleaner running regularly? A super aggressive A/V f-secure/norton?

Re: Is qbittorent spyware? (virustotal.com shows ip traffic)

It's a program most people use for "illegal" activities. So, many anti-virus programs will mark it as malware. If you downloaded it from the official site, you have nothing to worry about. If you downloaded it anywhere else, 1) WHY? 2) use at your own risk.

Re: total seeded for all time per torrent and all torrents

View/Statistics for the total data transferred thru the client since install.

Right click on the bar that shows the NAME of the torrents and you'll find a ton of options to view, including "uploaded" per individual torrent.

Re: Numbers of seeds and peers

Zero is the number you are currently connected to. As a seed, you don't need to be connected to any of the other seeds. You are part of the () number. Similarly, in the highlighted torrent, you are connected to two of the 33 total peers.

Re: Torrents disconnecting from tracker whenever PC shuts down

Well, of course they disconnect from the tracker when your PC shuts down, the way to fix that is to leave it running. The missing files comes because 1) you changed some files 2)your anti virus changed files (this can happen a lot of you torrent apps/games) 3) the files somehow became corrupt. We ca...

Re: Internet Connection Intermittently Killed While Downloading

This frequently happens when any program, in this case qbt, is using up the majority of your connection. Windows is not terribly good at bandwidth management. The easiest solution is set max download speed to be about 80% of your total available speed, that way there is at least SOME internet left o...

Re: Windows does not allow me to download the app cuz virus

There is nothing for qbt to "resolve." If you are downloading from a reliable source, like, HERE, it's a false positive. You simply have to override your AV and install the program.

Re: Erratic speeds

You can only upload/download as fast as the people you are connected to can seed/download, as those factors always vary, not to mention the endless quirks of the internet, your speeds will always be erratic. Nature of the beast.

Can only connect to specific peer after client restart

I downloaded a torrent where there was a single seeder, and I the only peer. I would connect to the seed for a few moments, get a few mb of data, then lose connection to that seed. I found that if I restarted qbt (452), I would again connect to the seed, and get a bit more data. I restarted the clie...
