The type of the computer virus(es) matters -- many interfere with networking and that needs to be repaired even after the virus(es) are removed.

"downloading  metadata"
...means you're using magnet links to torrents rather than .torrent files directly themselves.

If the trackers associated with the magnet links are missing or don't work (offline or dead-for-good like many/most are), then you simply must have working DHT nodes and/or find trackers that track those torrents AND have peers+seeds on them...or these magnet links will never work!

It's not possible to download certain and good torrents.

My system surely is affected.
What can i do now to repair ?
Where writes bittorrent in the windows registry ?

LSP linkages broken?

Does web browsers download ok?

Is your computer's LAN/WAN/wifi ips changed or corrupted?

The only way to be sure is completely reinstall windows itself from a backup, but it's worth the trouble probably to fix it first...you'll REALLY need someone good with computers to do this HANDS-ON rather than a random stranger telling you what to do over the internet!

I second what Switeck is saying:

After a virus or malware attack, often the only reliable ways to have a working Windows system again are a) System restore from before the infection occurred or b) Wipe the system and perform a clean install.  Hope you had backups.

Even good detection and removal programs cannot completely undo the damage that these POS virus/malware do, and Windows' becomes unstable after the removal.

What I need is know where is the error.

I have several acronis security copies. But I prefer to try to solve the problem.

I will comment.

How can I test that torrents are allowed to download by the operating system ?

Try a big Linux distro distribution torrent (google for links!)...they tend to have 1000's of peers+seeds.

Nice idea indeed, but don't solves my problem. I am in windows 8.1
I will try to obtain a virtual machine for VB while somebody helps me with this problem under windows 8.1
