Site is down but forum is up.
You can ask Mike if he'll let you try the beta build; it might fix your issue with uTorrent.
Or you can just wait for the next version to come out.
Edit: Mike put the latest beta build 48 in the public forum. Look here.
Here is a link to OA forums where Mike is telling what is happening so it might be this!
They are upgrading servers. Activation doesn't work right now either. Just be patient.
The site is back up.
I downloaded the beta version 2.0.50 yesterday but when I rebooted to do the wizard I got an error message "Can not start online armor service" . I also have a question on how one can have enough knowledge of the files to have some assurance they are not allowing access to the internet from a hostile program?
Thats why its beta. Use version .31. If your installing this for the first time or any firewall you should know before hand if your pc is clean or infected.
Yup, this is known bug of 50. They say 50 is replaced already to fix it. From the other side you can start 50 manually (OAui.exe). This is just one-time issue for the first boot. Other than that 50 is great. The best build since 31, and seems like RC.
Is the "intercept loopback" option available in OA free yet.
A month or so back, Mike had indicated that it would included.

The complete post:
When it comes up to allow or disallow a program from running you also have a choice to run safe. What are you allowing and what happens if one chooses run safe?
It is like you logon with limited user account, but only for the choosen program, which runs with reduced rights then.
A helpfully thread is here: Run Safer http://support.online-armor.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=19452
