When I try to load a picture from my SD card to my computer I now get the message that "unable to load IMG.... torent is not valid bencoding.* I dont have any idea what this means and google is not much help. Can any body explain what this means? Do I need the torrent file?

I've never come across this before but it looks as if you have some form of torrent software installed, either deliberately or inadvertently. Either way I'm surprised it's affecting an SD card download. I'd suggest running some anti malware software ( Malwarebytes ) - free version, also run your antivirus for a full scan of all drives and finally run CCleaner after that to clean out the system. Good luck.

I doubt that's the message, double-check

There was some torrent software installed, not sure how or why, but I have now uninstalled it and the problem has gone away.
