Why is uTorrent being flagged as malware


Recommended Posts

Hi. This has never happened before but for the last couple of days, when I run uTorrent, it shows a pop-up every 20s or so. I even tried adding an exclusion but to no avail. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

I'd bet that it's detected as a potentially unwanted application and not malware. From the yellow alert you can exclude the signature from detection in the advanced options so the same detection will not be triggered again.

Deluge and qBittorrent are open source alternatives that doesn't pack advertising or unwanted software with the installer

You can find them in Google , ESET won't alarm you for these two.
