Torrents only produce "attachments"

I have been uploading and downloading torrents from the Traders Den for years. Suddenly, when I click on a torrent to download it I get the following message:

"Do you want to open or save attachment.php from thetradersden.org?

Whether I click open or save, all I get is a (several kb) attachment. The torrent does not appear in Vuze for download as it always has .

Any idea what the problem is? I sure would appreciate any thoughts on how to download more torrents!

Thanks do much!

Matt

Re: Torrents only produce "attachments"

Did you recently upgrade your torrent app? Or your PC? Check the settings there.

Re: Torrents only produce "attachments"

I get that message when I download torrent files on my work pc with Vista but I always suspected that was because I don't have a torrent client on that machine so no file association with torrent files

Re: Torrents only produce "attachments"

I have seen it once or twice. When initiating download try clicking on save rather than open, then click on open at the bottom of the screen. You may then get a dialogue box showing the files-click ok

Right click on the torrent file...save on your desktop and then drag it into your client,extra step but at least your up and running then...

Or you can set your browser to always open this file type. I have had the same problem and that fixed it. I use chrome or IE will do same. When it askes what program do you want to open it with point it at your torrent client's EXE

Re: Torrents only produce "attachments"

sounds like the file associations aren't correct (or you don't have a torrent client). you need to associate your torrent client with the filetype.
