I had the problem of my torrent locking my windows as soon as it connected. and running a guide test came up with a (10053) port error. this is what I did to cure my problem.
1. control panel
2. network and sharing
3. click on your connection
4. under activity click properties
5. click on internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
6. put a dot in--use the following DNS server addresses
7. then enter these numbers
8. preferred DNS server: 208 67 222 222
alternate DNS server: 208 67 220 220
9. then click ok and restart computer and your torrent software. It worked for me. the only other option is to reformat your pc. hope this helps
