An upgrade from the original, uTorrent Plus is a purchase-only software program that allows for P2P file sharing with added features that include antivirus protection and multiple playback formats.

For years, uTorrent has been one of the most popular torrent clients. Security and peace of mind when downloading shared files has always been a major concern, and the new uTorrent Plus software addresses this concern by integrating first-rate security and malware protection, while at the same time allowing the user to download data without the inclusion of unwanted advertisements.

Torrent clients have been adding more playback and conversion features lately, and uTorrent Plus includes simple conversion and secure remote access to files, something lacking in the basic free software. This upgrade will certainly appeal to the millions of P2P file sharing enthusiasts worldwide because it significantly increases the level of security.

Easily Readable Client Page

The most popular form of file sharing is P2P because users have instant access to the material they desire so long as the data is being seeded in real time. The basic uTorrent program has a very easy-to-read info page that shows download and upload speed, peer info, and file descriptions with just a click of a button.

Depending on the structure of the file being shared, users can choose whether to prioritize any number of individual segments. Skipping certain files is also easy as long as the uploader has segregated the total content. However, the free version does not contain a program that checks for infected data. Because these files are often compressed and zipped, the user's own antivirus system may not be able to detect malicious content.

Advanced Virus And Malware Protection

The main upgrade feature of uTorrent Plus is the addition of a fully functioning malware check program. The award-winning BitDefender antivirus program is automatically included in uTorrent Plus, with a download scan in progress during the period where the user is receiving data.

This protection is updated hourly, offering complete peace of mind for those who use a torrent client to download any type of file. All audio, video and text files are thoroughly scanned for malware without the need to check for viruses by the user's own antivirus software program.

Convenient File Converter

The uTorrent Plus software also contains a handy file converter, something lacking in most other torrent clients' programs. Any file downloaded to the user's library can be converted to a format for viewing on a mobile or gaming device. This makes it simple to reformat video for compatibility with an iPhone, Android device, Xbox and Playstation.

The HD Media Player

Another great feature of the upgraded uTorrent Plus software is the inclusion of a high-definition media playback program. Some players have difficulty recognizing certain downloaded media because of missing codecs. Users can become frustrated because some codecs that are required contain malware. This problem is solved with the uTorrent Plus media player.
