    You're fault for not paying attention during installation, this is NOT a silent install...

    I remember they had some other software that I always unchecked when I installed uTorrent, but this time they didn't say anything! Maybe it's just for me! o_o

    Imagine that, a site/tool with the name "Torrent" in it uses a BH method.

    Who would have thunk it?

    Search for a folder called "EpicScale" on your computer and delete that.

    I think I just got it from the update, because I didn't accept it and still got it later! :)

    Try in settings control panel, add or remove programs and select that bitcoin miner to remove from your PC,Laptop.

    These types of installs are common in these days so be careful or keep an extra PC,laptop for secured using online.

    So...what kind of coins was it mining? I read somewhere it was LTC, but this is hard to believe.
