How to Disable BitTorrent

It is not possible to disable filesharing in BitTorrent or to disable sharing of .torrent files while downloading with any other BitTorrent client.

As long as you are downloading a .torrent file or leave the window open, you are sharing that file. Because of this, it is recommended that you not use BitTorrent to download copyrighted files, since it is not possible to remain in compliance with the AUP.
