    It's time these anti-malware vendors allow sysadmins and users to define the level of threat they want to be warned about. As a sysadmin, I'm all for blacklisting torrent software on office computers. As a user, no way.

    As it should uTorrent is malware.

    Tixati is the only true and pure client.

    uTorrent has "unwanted" addons.
    Try and opensource product like:

    I tried qBittorrent but somehow Tixati is just better.

    Well actually it is. Many private torrent sites banned the client too.
