How to download TORRENT files as normal files without interference of EXTERNAL | PROTOCOL | REQUEST ? Ron Wolpa 3/1/12 12:29 PM
Google Chrome version (type about:version into the address bar):Operating System:Error Message:Extensions installed:170 963 56
Please describe your question/comment in detail (for example, steps to reproduce the problem):

As I try to download a torrent file the screen EXTERNAL | PROTOCOL | REQUEST  comes up.
It rests me only  2 options : LAUNCH THE APPLICATION    and   DO NOTHING.
If the 1st one is clicked my client installed , uTorrent in this case , opens up and the download starts.
It happens that I prefer to download the torrent , open such file and take a look at what the pack offers me , before download it.
Not every time I download it completely .
Perhaps with the best of intentions , minding the security  or in the attempt to save time this resource has been thought by developers.
However I do not need nor wish any of this assistance , I prefer to download the torrent , check it with anti virus and then open to select the content to be
downloaded.
How can I do it ?

Hi Ron Wolpa. The reason you're seeing the external protocol request is because you've clicked on what is called a Magnet link which is designed to open your torrent client straight away and get things going. This is now the only option offered by websites like The Pirate Bay. Some sites still use the old system where you can download the .torrent file like you mentioned and check the contents first but if the website does not offer that system, then there is nothing you can do.

Thanks!
Dave
