Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

4.1.2, windows 7 64-bit

What is the problem

Shit don't work like it should work yo

What is the expected behavior

Actually fucking working?

Steps to reproduce

I don't know, install the program and let it become malware.

Extra info(if any)

The program randomly decided to malware up, literally. It starts up with windows even tho i don't have that option enabled anywhere, i can't kill the process with task manager, i can't kill it with CMD, nothing kills it, i can't uninstall it cause it's open, i can't reinstall it cause it's open...it's just fucking open, stuck there...i can open another instance of it but even that one can potentially freeze up.

Anyone know how to fix this without the need to nuke my system?

Sounds like you've run afoul of the Windows gremlins

Read through #9190, see if those suggestions fix anything

The same thing you do with any runaway exe on Windows. Open the permissions on the exe and set 'Read & Execute' to DENY for EVERYONE. After a reboot it will not be possible for the exe to run under any circumstances. If the app is still running, it is from another location and needs to be investigated via task manager. Right-click on app and select go to process, then right-click on the process and select open file location.

After you reboot, uninstall/delete the exe.
