Virus scan of .torrent file conflicts with qBittorrent

  • Steps to reproduce:

    1. Set up qBittorrent to automatically add torrents from a certain folder.
    2. Use Opera to download a .torrent file to that folder.

    What happens:

    qBittorrent adds the torrent and deletes the .torrent file as expected.

    But Opera appears red in task bar, and the download list shows "interrupted: virus scan failed" under the file.

    What should happen:

    The virus scan should complete before qBittorrent or any other program in a similar situation is allowed to access the file.

    Suggested solution:

    Downloads are named .opdownload while loading. Keep this extension for the virus scan.

  • Which version of Opera does this happen in?

  • Both the latest stable 28.0.1750.51 and developer 30.0.1835.5. qBittorrent v3.1.12.

    I use Microsoft Security Essentials under Windows 7, if that is relevant.
