    Hi, I have a bittorrent client, utorrent, I was uploading a file while I was playing solitaire and all of a sudden, i don't know what happened but now everytime I try to open anything, utorrent window pops up and I get an error message saying it's unable to load it because it not a torrent...for instance when I try to open system information, a dialog box pops up that says "Unable to load "msinfo32.exe": Invalid torrent file"
    it doesn't matter what I try to open, task manager, system restore, whatever. I can't remove it, I can't download and reinstall it, I can't do anything, luckily I can get online...I tried fixing from safe mode, I tried last known configuration, and I'm at a loss for what to do next.
    I'm running Vista home premium Service pack 1
    I can download HJT, but not install it because that dialog box saying its not a torrent comes up. I can't even open up a link in a new window....I'm really stuck, PLEASE HELP!
