After updating my bittorrent to latest version this program starts up automatically.. :) when i log into my account
And then I cannot connect to the internet when this thing is running probably sucks up all my connection... I use comodo firewall and it showed me traffic 100% for this thing... and I press ctr+alt+del go to processes and end process for btdna.exe then after few minutes I can go to my internet!

After a few research some people said it's a spyware.... somepeople said it is safe.... I dont know o_0 :)
I want to remove this thing :)

Hello there Reload147,
From What I have read,btdna.exe is a component of bittorent(probably received from your update of bittorent). Some say it is spyware, others say it is legit. I say it is most likely legit because it was an upgrade of your bittorent update package. It's designed to allow p2p streaming of online videos apparently. If it's restricting internet access then I would remove it because it doesn't necessarily sound like a required component to run bittorent, that's just my hunch though. If you could post some screenshots of your issues that would help also.

Howdy:

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to P2P file sharing programs. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselves legal, most things acquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/virii and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.

IN accordance with our policy (as already stated), we don't support p2p apps. I do strongly recommed that this app be removed.

This is based on this article: http://wefixedthegli...m/post/22786974. It appears to be poorly written and could be subject to being highjacked for nefarious purposes.

If you would like, you can visit our malware forums to make sure your not infected or have spyware on your system.

Regards,
Starjax
