There appears to be a bug with the latest upgrade of Utorrent. Many report that they get the yellow icon often, yet the torrents are active. I have this issue too and was doing my head in till I read around the various forums that it is a bug.

Pretty much ignore it, I have for the past few weeks and had no issues downloading with good speeds as always. Mine fluctuates constantly between yellow and green have even had the odd red icon.

Even if you get the yellow icon you will still be able to download. You just not likely to get as many seeds/peers than when you would have a green icon.

You might also want to check out portforward.com to make sure you have your router set up properly.

What port(s) are you using to download your torrents through? Are they forwarded on your router/firewall? You may want to ensure that they are before downloading again. :)

Simple Terms: You are too old to be using the internets :thumbsup:

Nah in seriousness, Sashyre post is the best. Its just a simple error with the latest version, and wont actually stop you from downloading, so its best to just ignore it. If your having problems downloading then post back.
