    Close Utorrent...or restart and start again...

    EDIT: What kind of file is it? .exe .zip?

    Tried that. Its an exe file

    Goto your task manager, look at processes and see if the file is in that list. If so, end that process then restart torrent. If that fails, it could be a virus ur downloading!

    What is it? just out of curiosity....

    have you tried extracting the rar file

    not sure how to do that

    i have recently switched to utorrent and have downloaded some files no probs. but all the ones i am trying to do now give that message. I have looked in the process in the task managers but cant figure out what is doing it:x

    i still have bit torrent downloaded on my comp but its not running - would this cause the problem?

    You can't extract an exe file....

    Anyway....is it a windows error message or an error message within Utorrent? Bitorrent shouldn't affect it...

    Could you send me a link to the file you are downloading via PM? I can have a look for you see if it does the same for me...

    Are you really downloading an EXE file with utorrent? Hope its from a reliable source.

    Anyway:-
