uTorrent Error: Access is Denied (Windows 7)

Ive recently seen an error in uTorrent when downloading a specific file getting the error “Access is denied”. Strangely it was only for one file, all others seem to be working ok. It appears there are some compatibility error with uTorrent and Windows 7.

To resolve the error complete the following:

1: Right click on the utorrent.exe file and select “Properties”
2: Select the   “Compatibility” tab
3: Check “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” and select “Vista” from the drop down menu
4: Select “Run this program as administrator” under “Privilege Level” at the bottom of the box.
5: Restart utorrent and you should be all good!
