The popular torrent client known as uTorrent has millions of users, many of whom have been using it for a decade. uTorrent (or micro-torrent, as it was sometimes called) gained popularity by living up to its name as a minimalist, fast torrent manager. In recent years, it’s gotten bloated and clunky. The situation has gotten so bad, apparently, that Microsoft and others have started flagging uTorrent as malware. You might agree, depending on your personal definition of malware.
Other Redditors were intrigued as he documented the experience on the forum website.
