  4. Why I Can Not Download Torrent File Download

I recently tried to download a few torrents from various sites and found that the file extension of all the files I try to download is .exe, which neither transmission nor vuze nor I know what to do with. This does not happen on all sites, but it seems to be the case on all the better/more popular ones. I am aware of the recent shift from torrent files to magnet links and have used magnet links before with no problem. I've searched and searched the web for anyone else having this problem, and the one time someone did seem to be, he was told it must be a virus, and that was as far as the conversation went. Can anyone help me and explain what's going on? Thank you!

  1. Can't download torrent files from kickass using IE. If I try to download a torrent file from kickass using IE 11, it just opens up a page with a bunch of garbled text. Works fine with Firefox.

  3. In this video, we learn how to use an ISO file after downloading a torrent. First, download Daemon Tools from Daemon Tools. After you install this on your computer, open it up. Then, find your ISO file and mount it through your computer. When you use the Daemon Tools, make sure it finishes downloading before you open it up.

You would want to download a torrent client program. Most new computers don't come with one. It is said that you can find lots and lots of torrent client programs in.

A number of sites are distributing torrents within a small downloader program. So you do not have to face the unspeakable horror of having a client program.

Downsides include:Does not work on non-windows machines.Can be used to install malware.Cannot be used to add additional trackers / peers to a torrent you are already downloading.

I have tried, without success, to find a way to download the .exe and extract the tracker information so it can be used in a client. Either the information is encrypted, compressed or a code is used to download the torrent after you run the exe.


I'm afraid I can only suggest what you found already. It's a virus (or at least some sort of malware). Are you sure the 'better/more popular ones' sites you're downloading from are the correct ones? Check the URL. Check with somebody you know, has the correct one.

Alternatively, check what you're clicking on. Many sites have other things to download. Stuff they get a commission on per install - advertising.

Make sure you're selecting the torrent file to download or magnet link. Sites can be sneaky and include things that might look like others.

If you wish to execute a .exe (alias: PE) on Linux, use Wine (Wine repository).
Use unsupported Windows software by installing it in a Virtual Machine.
Important: executables have the potential to infect your system, scan with ClamAV and download FOSS from your OS repository if possible.
Cracked installers may contain unwanted hidden software, never give them sensitive informations.
