utorent and memory


Recommended Posts


I use Utorrent for a while now but 1.6 gives me two problems.

It uses up to 30-40% of my cpu (pentium 4 - 3,0 MHz) witch i think is a lot.

It is using all my memory. If i look in windows taskbar i see that memory-use of utorrent builds up until it is running out of even virtuall memory. (512 memory and virtual up to 1300 ) The result....pc is shutting down.

Who kows how to avoid this?

Thanks a lot

McAfee is not very reliable, has been known to cause issues with µTorrent, and is suspected to cause yet another problem with µTorrent =T

Try Kaspersky AntiVirus, Sysinternal's RootKitFinder, and some antispyware software (Microsoft Defender, Spybot Search & Destroy, etc).

Hm... Try this... Start > Run > devmgmt.msc

IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers

- Primary IDE Channel

- Secondary IDE Channel

Check the Advanced Settings tab in properties for both channels, and make sure Current Transfer mode is not PIO in Device 0 and Device 1 for either channels. If it isn't already set, select Transfer Mode to be "DMA if available." Restart your computer afterwards, I guess.
