My torrent clients keep crashing on W8 whenever I try to add a torrent.

Yeah, because legal torrents just don't exist, right?


Yes, but TC is not in the .3%


Maybe he's trying to download one of the 95% of linux distros that force you to torrent them?


Does Opera still have a torrent client built in for those .3% legal torrents?

I'm actually trying to download the Morrowind Overhaul...which is legal.

Don't use torrent programs on Windows. Your IP address is blasted across the net to every FBI agency and every hacker. They can very easily remote exploit you.
If you must use torrents, do so from a live linux CD so at least you can't get infected.


Even so, I use peerblock just in case. But i don't use torrents other than I think it's a good download manager with my slow internet.

Your paranoia and your advice don't match up.

If all these hackers and agencies really have your IP and can just remote their way into any Windows PC they want to, they'll still get your IP while you torrent from the live cd, and would just be able to remote to you when you're logged into your windows OS.

While not arguing for or against piracy there are some straight up stupid ass comments here, as expected in any topic with keywords such us torrent, pirate, DRM etc.

I'm assuming it means boots and legs in the literal sense. Because otherwise, mods themselves are not typically bootlegged...

Didn't realize Linux Distos, PC mods, and public released music albums were illegal now.

To fix any windows 8 issue
Step 1: Format Computer

Stop. Windows 8 is a fine operating system, with several features over Windows 7. There is literally no reason to use 7 over 8.

It's a graphical mod for FF7. Do some research.

Nothing illegal about it, it's just a name.

Now TC, what client are you using? I have had success with Vuze, and I prefer it to the recent versions of uTorrent. Try a different client. Also, make sure your client is completely up to date, as it could be a bug fixed in a later version.

Btw, how many files are in the torrent? Huge torrents might lock up the client if there are thousands of files.
