Well, if the torrents are current and seeded, I'd suspect the security settings on your PC or firewall/virus scanner. I'm not familiar with windows 8 and security.

What client are you using?
I also use AVG free and don't have any problems with Windows 7. You don't have a trial version of anything that came with the PC I take it?
Can you say what response you get from the mousebits tracker (trackers tab in uTorrent) ?
Are the torrents showing up in the downloading window and just not downloading or are they not opening at all?

You could also try running the client in compatibility mode for an earlier windows version.
OK, that's enough for now. Please let us know the answers to all three questions (client name, tracker status, downloads being added OK).

What security settings should I alter?
Not sure what client name is or how I get it.

The torrents are loaded into Utorrent without a problem, they just stay at .00%, with no activity.
trackers status says "proxy connect error: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it".
Thanks

uTorrent is your client ("client" is the name of the program you use for torrents).  ;D
Check any firewall you may be running and also your virus program and make sure that mousebits and uTorrent are in your allowed list. (You can test AVG by closing down your browser - for safety - and disable the program - Tools - 3rd line down Remember to turn it back on when done)! See if that works.
Also after doing that, shut down any firewall you have(again remember t turn it back on again when done). Do these one at a time. It may help to pinpoint which, if any, is causing the problem.
Do you use a proxy? if not change the settings in uTorrent See the diagram on this page)

about half way down.
Do make sure you are using the latest version of uTorrent as well (made for use with windows 8)


Found this on another forum where they had the same problem but with all torrents

>I think you should uninstall and do a clean install.

>After you uninstall uTorrent go to -
>Documents and settings>User name>Application Data>uTorrent
>(delete the utorrent file that was left after you uninstalled)

>Reinstall uTorrent.
>Turn off proxy support

Do the mousebits torrents show any seeds or peers at all? I would guess they don't as it's getting blocked by something in transit and so not reaching the site.
It's educated guesswork as I don't have windows 8 which may have some new security setting.
Let us know how you get on.  ;)
