First of all you should not use college bandwidth to download torrents, it's there for good use.

Secondly, you can't do that, there's not method like that. And as Lab Operator already knows, it's high time you stop doing these things, else they can take action against you (If they want to :p)

Thirdly, one thing you can do is, put them in some hidden folder, or some non tracable location, like C:/TC/Bin/Lib Files, where Lib Files = Your download folder's parent folder. If you keep the name as like Download / Torrent Download there's no way you can do anthing, make the folder name as such, it'd look like of some program. You even may use C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/Library where Library is the folder you download torrents to :p

That doesnt secure anything.. All the lab assistant has to do is look where the torrent client is storing the data and delete it from there

@OP: utorrent doesn't have password secure feature..u will have to use 3rd party apps such as folder lock/hide or App locker to do the same.

I agree that you should refrain from using college bandwidth for downloading.

Next thing that you can do is put your files in a password protected .rar or .zip file and hide it somewhere where no one can see it.

Go to Utorrent Preferences
In General Select Start Utorrent when system starts and Start Minimised.
Make any Boss Key
Select Use BossKey Password and just make the password whatever you want.
Open Registry
Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Microsoft->Windows->CurrentVersion->Run
Right Click Utorrent and select Modify
Add "/HIDE" without quotes at the end.
Restart your PC.

Now Utorrent is running but it won't appear in Taskbar, to open Utorrent you need to press the boss key and then password to gain access.
However this method has a loophole that other user can end task the Utorrent process from task manager and start with its executable.
For this you can use Utorrent Portable. Now only you know the location of the executable. :)

I also have this problem.Earlier i used automatic start up feature/minimise to tray in torrent client.I used to download while my sister browsed.Somehow she found the trick and afterwards she always stops the downloads:evil:Then fooled her by using two clients at same time. She found that also:(.

Utorrent is utorrent without any installation which basically means there will be no shortcuts in Start Menu or everywhere. You just download a ZIP file extract them to your desired location and run the executable. Thats it.

but whats the fun even then ? If utorrent is running even in the so called portable mode , wont it be appearing in the task manager /processes then ?

and that HIDE thing dint work. I edited the registry but of no use. moreover no BOSS key thing as well !

You must have done something wrong. I have used this tricks not just one time but many times on different computers.

try renaming the original utorrent.exe to svchost.exe and then run it. it may get hidden in between. you may have to find a way to edit the description of the exe as shown in the processes tab in Task manager .
