Qbittorrent disappeared

Post by downloader2358932 »

I'm using a relatively new computer problem-free but somehow today qBittorrent is no longer on it...also this strange white box appeared on my desktop (screen capture attached)...I ran a full scan by the free version of Avira Antivirus and nothing came up...what is going on? (No one else touches this computer, and no other apps seem to be affected.)

It's a "thing" now, Microsoft marked qBittorrent as a "PUA" (potentially unwanted software) and removed / disabled it. You can just grab the latest version, reinstall it and you'll be back where you were with all your files and settings intact.
