Red indicates that you're not getting good connection with the tracker, but once that happens! You should not worry if only a few times, but if it is red all the time, might not have an exception from utorrent in windows firewal!
or may be need to open ports on your router connection!
Here's how to open ports for utorrent, find brand and model of your Router and click in tha model!

If you're seeing a red arrow then chances are you're trying to download too many at once.
In the bottom pane, click on the Trackers tab then look at the smithstorrents.co.uk status. What does it say?

Did you move the files from the place you downloaded them?

no, but i added an "audio_ts" folder just to make the copying easier for a dvd. could that be the problem? i already removed it from utorrent though, how do i get it back on

Yes. Your torrent program will be fussy about where those files are. You can probably tell them where they've moved to. That's possible in uTorrent via Right Click | Advanced | Set Download Location.
