If its a red arrow next to the torrent, this usually indicates a problem with the tracker (or in my experience anyway).
If its doing it with every file from different sites, then thats odd - I do know some trackers prevent use of certain versions of clients - is your UTorrent the latest "legit" build ? There are some dodgy hacked versions out there which do get banned by trackers.

How long ago did you download it ? If you goto the Help menu, I think theres a "Check for update" option (Id check but Im at work) there or else go download it again to make sure.

It could be a private tracker. if it is you'll need to go to the site that provides the file and register with them to download the real torrent.
