Windows XP SP3
I use utorrent. Occasionally, in the logger I will get this message: "Error opening Windows firewall: 0x80070005 Access is denied". It is not always there, it is intermittent.
From Microsoft Answers: Error opening Windows firewall: 0x80070005 Access is denied
It is a two steps process,
1. Make sure the torrent port is open in the Windows Firewall
2. Open the BT client using "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR"
Also check with this test (if this works, I expect you can ignore other warnings):
Incoming-Conn-Port' is the port number at,
Port used for incoming connections.
There is also some discussion at the uTorrent forum:
Error opening windows firewall 0x80070005 access denied.
