Yeah, uTorrent is probably THE best Windows BitTorrent client out. It has such a small foot print and hardly uses ANY resources. I'm using BitComet because I'm too lazy to install and uninstall anything else, so yeah.
u don't need to install utorrent

Okay, just to let everyone know. I downloaded Azureus from the official Azureus site and guess what? No virus...

So that means there is something up with when you download it from download.com.

Lol, I know... Thanks for that.

Last time I download anything from download.com.

Hell, it's probably safer to download something off a p2p program than download.com.
