Each time I try to run BELARC ADVISOR, it gets through profiling my machine and almost finishes checking on SECURITY measures. At that stage BitComet pops up and says "Unable to read torrent file. Please try again...."

As far as I am aware, I only have BitComet associated with Torrent files, so can anyone explain this for me?

Presumably Belarc regards such applications as insecure. Simple solution (and stay legal in the process) is to remove BitComet.

There are many legitimate uses for the bittorent protocol today. Many games are available for purchase online via a bt download. Linux uses it and so it grows on a daily basis.
Files released on trackers does not nessarily contravene copyright legislation.

Bitcomet er is considered a faulty/hacked client on many trackers and I advice you use another. Try utorrent.

Just my cents. :thumbsup:
