Utorrent works on the premise that there are many people wanting the file that is being downloaded and many people have the file or parts of it available to be downloaded.
When one person is holding the whole file then they can seed this file so others can download it. As long as they have the file complete and available others can download it normally in blocks such as 4 kb blocks. As they download the blocks then they are available to others to download from them so if you have downloaded 50% of a file then that 50% of the file is available to any others that want to download it.
To this end someone can download part of the file from you and part of the file from another person thus speeding up the download process.
when two people are downloading different parts from the seeder they can also download the parts the other person has downloaded. So each person is helping to speed up the process of getting the file.

Once each person has a complete file then they can seed that file in its' complete form allowing many people to download the file quickly.

Where the torrent system falls over is when the initial person with the complete file stops seeding the file before each person downloading the file has the complete file. If there is any part of the file not contained on at least one downloaders computer then the file will continue to wait till that piece is available before completing the download thus leaving all downloaders without a complete file.

If a file has become dormant where no people are carrying any part of the file then the torrent program sits waiting for any part to become available to start downloading.

How can i start downloading after seeding?

If your file is seeding, then it must have already finished downloading. Your choices:
  • COPY the file to somewhere else, so that it can keep seeding (good Karma).
  • Delete the torrent and MOVE the file to where you need it to be.

I want to download a free microsoft office word but then i dont know how to do it.

The only way to get a free version of Microsoft Word is through the use of torrent sites.

The most popular torrent is Utorrent. Download Utorrent from and install it. Then go to a torrent site such as and search for Microsoft office, choose the torrent with good ratings and lots of seeds. Download it, then in Utorrent go to the download and right click it, choose "open containing folder" and there it will be.

Downloading Torrents is illegal so I urge you not to do this.

I can not downloads song from utorrent

There can be a few things that stop utorrent.

Your ISP is blocking the torrent data. A few do this to keep the traffic down.

There are no seeds or the torrent is dead.

Your router is blocking the ports.

If you see the green check down near the clock then it is connecting. When you highlight the torrent and then click on the tabs you should see how many seeds and so on. If there are no seed or the availability is zero it is a dead torrent.

If you are looking for a few mp3's you can try that is a mp3 only search and download site (also free).

UTorrent Speed Problem

It's a "configuration" option.

But, there are "diminishing returns" -- adding more seeds won't make your downloads any faster.

Compare it to a 4-lane highway -- when there's the "right" amount of traffic, all 4 lanes move quickly.
When there is "too-many" vehicles, traffic slows down, even though the width of the highway (equivalently, the speed of your Internet connection) has not changed.
