Odd permissions based problems with uTorrent Portable on Windows 7

I have been using uTorrent Portable on Windows Server, until now, and it has worked fine.

Recently I have tried using it on Windows 7, from the default user account made on installation. However, it gives and error when I try to download anything- 'Error:Access is denied'.

When I run uTorrent as an elevated administrator from the same account, it does download successfully, but it downloads into the user download folder for the local 'Administrator' account, which is disabled (as is default).

I have not set any particular download folder in uTorrent's options, and the machine is in a domain, but I do not think this will make any difference, as I am not using a domain account - just the default local admin account with my username (not the 'Administrator' account, which is disabled.

Does anybody know what is happening here? Why can uTorrent not download unless it is elevated (which I do not want to do) and why does it download into the Administrator user folder when I do?
