Torrent - Error: Access is Denied?

I've been trying to download to a series of files using bittorrent. But every 3 minutes, the torrent stops downloading and says "Error: Access is Denied". It doesn't point out a specific reason. I setup a static ip, i use port forwarding, and i still get the same error. I disabled my firewall and antivirus program. I used encryption but nothing got better. I use to get a green check mark saying my network is fine, but now it's a red exclamation point. I still have a high down speed but no up speed. I tried to download the torrents on uTorrent instead of bittorrent but i still get the error, regardless of what i try to download.

Update:

Edit: Unlocker doesn't work for vista 64 :(

Update 2:

Edit: I turned off a vista feature that would ask for permission, that solved the problem

    The error:access is denied has nothing to do with any network issue. Its usual cause is an indexing program (Google Desktop; Roxio MediaManager etc.) taking over the download folder. There are other reasons and solutions laid out in this uTorrent FAQ:

    If you cannot figure out which program is using the folder, then download and install the free unlocker. Then right-click on your uTorrent download folder and select unlocker. It will tell you what is locking up the folder.

    As far as the network being red when it was green, I cannot say for sure as there are too many possiblities. Hopefully, you can go back to the settings you had when it was green.
