Best known bittorent client. Monitored it's behaviour and found it harmless. Can't understand though why the process continues to run after exiting the program! It just sits there completely inactive.

BTdownloadgui is a bittorrent tracker released by Aurora, it has packaged spyware included with it. For safe downloads, download Azureus or a trusted client!!!

Btdownloadgui.exe is the client for BitTornado and as such needs to be running 'only' if you are currently using the program to download/upload to the internet. Upon finishing a download/upload I have noticed that btdownloadgui.exe will 'hang' in the "Task Manager Proccesses" applet. Watch the CPU (% usage) column for any activity... if none it's safe to "End Proccess", just make sure its the right one :)
This is the client-proccess for BitTornado (and other torrent-client apps).
that I can download anything and is for freeheber
Bit Torrent
it is the interface for downlading bittorrent files using bittornado... it is not spyware, but a p2p program for d/l music etc. It has nothing to do with Aurora

Runs with BitTorrent, but when BitTorrent stops, this keeps on running. Might just have been badly coded

Best practices for resolving btdownloadgui issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with btdownloadgui. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
