I need to try it,I dont like azeruos that much and I want to drop Utorrent as soon as I can since bit torrent owns it and its now part of the media mafia horde >>

uTorrent is still good. Just uncheck the box that says "Check for updates automatically" as well as the box that allows anonymous usage statistics and your fine.

ya it is still good but its now owned by "bit torrent"/bram corhan whos been bought out by the media mafia.

Altho if they tried to do any under handed tracking it would not take long for people to find out still...I'd rather move on to another BTC...
