I downloaded and was playing WoW at work and i got a warning from IT cause it was registering as a bittorrent client. I know the updater uses peer to peer. If i disable all of that will it no longer register as a bittorrent client?Don't judge me.. work is BORING..

@ CalafBlizz changed the packet structure the game uses to send info from the client to the server and vice versa, and it most closely resembles P2P traffic.You could try explaining that to your IT department, but they might chew you out of it for using work resources for non-work related activities.

Thats the game client itself? If so that sucks...
