Are you on PC or Mac? For PC, find the PrtScr button to the top right. Make sure your uTorrent window is active and use Alt+PrtScr to capture an image of that window to memory. Open Paint, use Ctrl+V to paste the image from memory, save the file as a JPG. Attach the JPG as an image. For Mac, I dunno. Take a photo with your phone?

Sounds like error in download location (usually C:\Users\"username"\ Downloads) if Windows
Have a look at this see if it does the trick
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Going out now so good luck :D

Also, make sure your hard drive isn't close to full.

Mm. Have a look at the keys in the top right corner. PrtScrn might be written underneath the name of another key, possibly in gray rather than white. If this is so, you'll need to hold down the FN key (probably next to the Windows key in the bottom left corner) plus the ALT key, plus the PRTSCRN key to get a screengrab.

This isn't for an Acer, but it should be similar. Leave the ALT key out if its too fiddly.

First, though, check your hard drive isn't nearly full.

Good job, done perfectly AB. You've got plenty of swarm going on, and your network connection is okay (the green tick in the bottom right corner), so unsure - djones, any ideas?

Did you check your hard drive free space? Got any VPN happening?

Edit: I just had another look, are those first two torrents downloading correctly?
