    3.5.x Beta

    I reached the point with ~7,000 torrents where it crashes every hour. (Even with LAA.) Increasing GDI handle quota to 30,000 did not seem to help. Will try 60,000.
  2. If you take a look at my very first post in this thread, that's exactly what I did. I disabled BitTorrent Antivirus. I did it very long ago and never enabled it. This is why I'm so surprised it's still trying to do anything.
  3. Unfortunately, the forum does not allow to add multiple screenshots at once. (Even when I was trying to add a new post to the thread.) Here's the Defender screenshot: http://www.imagebam.com/image/df08e41359970719
  4. I have uTorrent Pro (mostly because I want to support development and receive support). It comes with antivirus, but I do not want it. I disabled antivirus in settings permanently. Nevertheless, every day, I see notifications from Microsoft Defender that BitTorrent Antivirus tried to mess with my hard drive. (I will post screenshot in the next post. The forum won't allow me to attach multiple screenshots at once.) This is completely unexpected. Even when built-in antivirus enabled (by default) I would expect it to only check the downloaded torrents, not the raw hard drive. But when disabled, it should not be doing anything. If there are any other methods I can use to disable the built-in uTorrent Antivirus please let me know.

    3.5.x Beta

    Windows 10 (latest version) 64-bit. 14 GB RAM. The page file is set to automatic value, and it's currently 14 GB as well. (Even though it looks like the system is not really using it very heavily. Typically, only <100 MB of the page file is used.) uTorrent cache is not overridden. (Both “override automatic cache size” and “reduce memory usage” checkboxes are cleared.) I assume the application should do the right thing automatically. I have tried other values (e.g. 200 or 1800) but there were still issues. (Honestly, maybe these issues, crashes and hangs, happened less often when I have “override automatic cache size” selected. I'm still trying to experiment with different settings to see if there's any pattern.)

    I keep adding torrents, and I'm currently at 2813 torrents total. Unfortunately, it looks like even with LAA, the latest versions (including 45828) do crash seldomly. It's much better than without LAA, but still inconvenient. It looks that it typically happens when I leave machine unattended for a long time, many torrents finish downloading and start seeding. If I keep an eye on it and stop seeding every torrent shortly after it finishes downloading, uTorrent never crashes or hangs. Maybe it's finally time for a native 64-bit version. It would be able to operate memory much more efficiently.

    Yeah, Defender seems to be very unhappy about uTorrent. Here's the list of threats being detected. EUS:Win32/Graphez!cl PUA:Win32/Pearfoos.A!ml PUA:Win32/uTorrent The last one is understood and expected. The other two are not. They very well may be false positives, but I'd say the team needs to do something about it long-term.

    Thanks! This link still downloads 3.5.5.45798. *** ...and after installing from the former link, it gives you the following greeting: yay five-part product versions! *** Funny thing is, the installer seems to be large address aware already. Apparently, it's compiled with LAA flag from the get-go! While the actual uTorrent executable (laid down by installer) is still not LAA.

    >2300 total, but only 10-20 active a time.

    3.5.x Beta

    I've been using latest betas (from this thread) + LAA patch for the last couple of weeks. No more crashes for me. (Once it automatically updated itself, before I could apply LAA patch, and it immediately brought back frequent crashes.) So, LAA seems to really solve the crashing problem, at least to me! Now there's a slightly different problem. Every once a while (approximately once a day) the window hangs. It does not look like a crash. The symptoms are visually different, and it happens much less frequently. (Without LAA patch, the application crashes every 5-10 minutes at me.) So, I think it's a whole different issue. I've tried playing with disk cache settings and disabling DHT, it does not seem to help. So, I'm yet to see what other settings I may change trying to isolate the hang issue.
  11. I have rearranged some paths on my computer and moved files around. For some torrents, the content (downloaded files) was moved. I know I can reassociate an existing download with a new content location by right-clicking a torrent -> advanced -> change download location. That actually works pretty well. But for some other torrents, the location of .torrent file has changed, too. Now uTorrent display such downloads with "Error: cannot open .torrent file: <old path>". This is of course expected, but how can I remediate that? I.e. how do I tell uTorrent that it should now look for the .torrent file for a given job in a different location? (I know that removing the torrent and re-adding it can be used as the last resort, but I would prefer not to do that, if possible. I have a complex system of tags, different save directories, custom destination names, etc. This all will have to be re-done manually if torrent is re-added, so it's a PITA.) Thanks in advance!

    This is what I see when trying to download LAA file today: Couple days ago the stub was similar, but wording was about a virus. In either case, there does not seem to be a link to bypass the message and unblock the file. Windows Defender does block uTorrent in general, regardless of patches. At least, that's what my experience was. However, LAA patch will make the file even less trustworthy (and rightfully so) because it breaks the digital signature.

    Google does not allow to download the LAA file anymore, says there's a virus there. Can you create a LAA version of the latest beta? Because that's what I'm using. ------ Update: I managed to create an LAA version myself (there are tools available on the Internet, apparently.) It works beautifully. Suddenly, no crashes in 3 days and counting. Thanks for the great idea! (I wish there was a native 64-bit version of uTorrent, though. C'mon, it's 21st century already.)
  14. I'm desperately troubleshooting some nasty crashes. One of the things I tried was playing around with caching settings. Unfortunately, that did not help much and hence I'd like to go back to default settings. However, I do not remember what they were. Can someone post a screenshot of the below Settings page in the all-defaults configuration? Thanks in advance!
