    Hey guys. My first post on this site. really hope you can help me out.
    okay the issue is that everything is fine in utorrent for about 2 minutes, downloading fine, then suddenly every torrent (not at once but in quick succession) displays a red hexagon with an exclamation point inside it where there should be a blue arrow for downloading... i looked at the trackers and they either display "connection refused" or "inactive" or "scrape ok". im really confuzzled by this and would greatly appreciate some help :) thanks.

    Maybe your ISP is blocking the port. Go to Utorrent >>> Preferences >>> Network >>> Incoming TCP port and click the RANDOMIZE button.

    What is your upload rate set to? many trackers will refuse if you don't seed a minimum amount...What about encryption?

    Check there is space on your hard drive for the files.....I just got this symbol for the first time after using uTorrent for years and it turns out my external hard drive was full (ie the destination location of the torrents). I emptied the trash to free up some room, then stop/started the problem torrents. They immediately turned into those lovely blue download arrows. All good!
