Occasionally uTorrent 3.1.3 seems to lose its way. Lots of torrents active, but it can't seem to fully utilize my uplink. Had that going on this morning, with it kind of fluctuating around 100Kbytes/s, even though my limit is 200.
So I decided to upgrade to the latest version, to see if they might have found and fixed a problem.
The upgrade is fast and easy. You download the installer and run it. It tries to get you to accept a bunch of crapware, but you can say "no".
For everything, that is, except the uTorrent bar in IE and Firefox. Oh, it asks you, and you can say "no", but it installs it anyway.
So I got into IE and disabled it, and then went to the control panel and outright uninstalled the damned thing. Then I checked Firefox. It was still there, and still enabled. I figured out how to turn it off -- or at least, how to get it off my screen. But I can't figure out how to uninstall it outright. Grumble.
As to the scheduling thing? Well, at least for the first few minutes it looks like it's better. It isn't absolutely saturating but it's running about 185. I won't really know for sure for a few days, though in a couple of hours I'll have a pretty good idea. I'll let you know.
UPDATE: Four hours now, and it's been nicely pegged at 200K for most of that. I think there was a bug that's been fixed.
UPDATE: Late in the evening: maybe not. It's back to bouncing up and down again, albeit it's running at a higher average level while doing so.

Right click on an empty place on the Firefox header, and you get a menu which includes some things you can turn on and off. The uTorrent toolbar is one of them.
And I just figured out how to uninstall it outright. Left-click the upper left corner (orange button) and select "Add ons".
Click the "Extensions" button, and there it is.
