    It's not working - problem is on their end.

    Because it does not work here either and all other downloads I've tried do work.

    And I know there is nothing wrong with my machine.

    Raz0rEdge's link above works perfectly fine for me. I just downloaded uTorrent just fine.

    I checked and MacUpdate is hosting the file independent of uTorrent's site and it should work..what error are you getting? Perhaps you have a more global download issue than related to just uTorrent?

    There would be something wrong with mine also - because the link at macupdate didn't work on mine either when I tried it right after the post yesterday morning.

    Can't remember the exact error - but something to the effect of an invalid .dmg file.

    (Won't be back at a Mac until this evening.)

    Hmm...turns out MacUpdate points to the uTorrent site as opposed to housing their own copy..so if uTorrent site is having issues, this will persist.

    Though, I just tried it now on my work laptop and it downloaded..

    It downloads - can you open the dmg?
