There is something that tells me that users that care about if this track them or not, well they should use the version just before utorrent got bought hehe

heh- why?

I've never seen a simple shred of evidence that supports this "the new uTorrent is spying on my downloadzz!!" drivel. Stop spreading this lie until there's evidence for it.

just felt like adding this, the guy that makes leecher mods for uttorrent(and others i think),(forget his name right now) mentioned in his 1.7.5 custom version that he removed spying stuff or something like that.

i'll look it up tonight, but other than that i haven't seen much/any evidence of them spying on people.

EDIT: got it!

CALL HOME IN ALL MODS REMOVED !!!

the guy's name is seba14 and i got that from the readme in the 1.7.5 leecher pack.

i dunno why he would put it if he didn't find something :unsure:

could you please be a lot more specific with this stuff?. Because that would be like a "serious" (note the quotes) accusation that uT are in fact spying people. There is any proof we can see of that? Or is just another guy who "hack" the client to freeleech from torrent sites?

read my edit, if you want to verify this yourself, go to seba14.org and look for the 1.7.5 leecher pack and read the readme within.

i'm not saying i know for a fact that he did do anything, but unless he's just bored and decided to play off people's paranoia(very possible), then why would he put that note in there?

- Fix: Opening dialog on Windows 95

im a bit surprised to see this, that they are making the program work better on a 12 year OS that no one uses. They should just make the program work for windows nt and up(like windows 2000, xp, vista, etc). If they do that, then they can spread more time securing and adding stuff instead of killing bugs that are caused by win 95/98
