I created an exception for the following file: C:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe
However it's still being detected on daily, automatic scan.

Looks like it is now considered an PUP.Optional.BundleInstaller. Pardon me I would allow the exe file in program files too.

You may need to add folders below:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ uTorrent\uTorrent.exe

C:\Program Files\Common Files\ uTorrent\uTorrent.exe

See if that works for you.

Just a question if you don't mind, is it detecting the file in a scan, or are you getting notifications in the system tray when its running about it blocking a connection?

Hi @Broni,

Thank you for the file.

I see you were experiencing a Real-Time Protection detection for C:\Users\broni\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe; the last of which was from 2 days ago.

The detection in your recent scheduled scans is for C:\USERS\BRONI\APPDATA\ROAMING\UTORRENT\UPDATES\3.5.5_45608.EXE, which is a different file path. You will either need to exclude this file path or the C:\USERS\BRONI\APPDATA\ROAMING\UTORRENT\UPDATES directory.
