uTorrent stopped, cannot start [SOLVED]

Q. I am having trouble with my uTorrent program. πŸ™ Everything had been working great but now everything is stopped and I cannot get it to connect and download. I have made sure nothing is paused/stopped and I even tried ‘Force Start’ but that didn’t even work. Then things would work again for a bit and stop, it is driving me CRAZY! My internet connection is fine and nothing has changed there. I am hoping you have a suggestion to try? -Pearl

A. Hi Pearl, I am happy to try and help. πŸ™‚ Normally, I would suggest investigating your internet connection and your uTorrent connection settings but it sounds like you have already tried that. So, you may want to make sure that you do not have a ‘Transfer Cap’ enabled or a scheduler setting* Β that is resulting in uTorrent stopping and being unable to download until either the transfer cap expires or the schedule resumes. To check this, go to Options->Preferences-> Transfer Cap and if needed, uncheck the ‘Enable Transfer Cap’ setting. πŸ™‚

*however, scheduler settings would still not account for your inability to force start…

So here is the screen I would like you to check out:

uTorrent transfer limit option

uTorrent transfer cap option can result in uTorrent coming to a full stop

Hopefully this tip will help you get your uTorrent working again!

Best regards,


Wow that was it! I forgot I set that option and I never even noticed it until you reminded me to look there. THANK YOU πŸ™‚ -Pearl

You are very welcome Pearl! πŸ™‚
