Enables you leave you computer on and downloading torrents all night and all day when the wifi networks around you go up and down or their connections to the net do so.
If you create a link to the util in the startup folder then when windows BCD’s and reboots if you have uTorrent auto loading too then things will carry on. Continue reading »
