Which operating system are you using? You can try right clicking it and running in Win9x compatibility mode although that's very hit and miss.

can encrypt the connection and stop Sky broadband from throttling me :thumbsup:

i thought could encrypt the connection in utorrent. im pretty sure mine is encrypted. I've never been throttled by sky anyway.

utorrent doesnt have an option for encryption from what I have seen. I thought encryption was site specific (I know eztv is).

i'll have to check, im certain i'd clicked the option to encrypt traffic maybe it was on a site rather than in utorrent

Options > Preferences > BitTorrent then select "Protocol encryption"

i assumed this meant that the traffic is encrypted, am i wrong?

Good spot! Make sure you use forced and disable legacy connections :-

1. Go to: Options > Preferences > BitTorrent
2. Go to ‘Protocol encryption’, you can choose between ‘enabled’ and ‘forced’. ‘Enabled’ will give you more connections but offers less protection against traffic shapers.
I would recommend to try ‘enabled’ first, if that doesn’t increase your speeds you need to swich to ‘forced’.
3. Ticking ‘Allow legacy incoming connections’ allows non ecrypted clients to connect to you. This improves compatibility between clients but makes you more vulnerable to traffic shapers.

ill check my settings tonight,

Don't - Ubuntu really isn't any good. It's like Windows, except a not-working version of Windows that will require you to spend much of your life in something called "Terminal" to accomplish even the most basic of tasks, like plugging in a USB adaptor.
