Many thanks for that.........I removed Azureus and tried KTorrent again 
and it appears very clean and simple to use after all..........it 
appears to be working ok but at the moment it stalls from time to 
time..........is that normal, or is that perhaps down to the stormy 
weather we are having and a slightly wobbly connection?
