Sweet Mercury Posted December 6, 2006 Report Share Posted December 6, 2006 Please read through the entire description of my issue before telling me I need to read FAQ—I've read it, and it's helped me narrow down the issue.First, my issue isn't one of speed, connectivity, firewall blockage, or anything else as far as I can tell. The problem is that, whenever I run μTorrent, after a while, my entire system crashes. It doesn't just freeze, or lock up so I can alt+ctrl+delete out of it, the screen just goes black and the system reboots—as if the plug had been pulled. After it restarts, Windows explains that the system has recovered from "A serious error," and after reporting the bug to Micro$oft (who I'm sure jump all over this pressing issue), it takes me to a general error screen that says:"Error type : Windows stop error (A message appears on a blue screen with error code information) Solution available? : No (see Next steps) What does this error mean? : Windows has encountered an error from which it cannot recover and needs to restart Cause : Unknown device driver Computer symptoms : A message appears on a blue screen with error code information (for example: e.g. 0x0000001E, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED) Additional steps for you to take : Important: Please continue to send error reports so analysts at Microsoft can study and try to correct the problem as quickly as possible Information about this errorYou received this message because a device driver installed on your computer caused the Windows operating system to stop unexpectedly. This type of error is referred to as a "stop error." A stop error requires you to restart your computer."Despite what MS says, I got no blue screen before shut down; just instant shutdown.My main question is, essentially: has anyone else had such a similar, drastic problem? What was the cause/fix? Otherwise, μTorrent works as expected or better. Connections are fast and reliable, I connect to peers, download speed is faster than any other client, etc.Full disclosure: I have a Linksys WRT54G router, firmware version 2.04.4, hardware version 2. Now just calm down, everyone, I've fully read the big, bold section in the FAQ as well as the Sticky thread at the top of this page. However, the issues described in those areas (the hanging, the bad connections, etc.) are not what I was experiencing. As stated, my connection is great (except when the entire OS crashes, of course). Now, since I didn't see this issue described with the other issues pertaining to the router, and since I wasn't experiencing the problems described with those routers, I assumed this is a separate issue. If this is a related issue, then Mods, please just answer in the affirmative and close/delete the thread at your discretion (preferable close, so I can see your response). I'll just either update my hardware (it's a few years old anyway) or try the firmware flashes suggested in the FAQ.Also, I'm running CA Internet Security, but have experienced no issues with their firewall—especially since I followed μTorrent's instructions on setting up ports on my router (all of which went well and made the connection much quicker and more reliable).Anyway, sorry for the excessive verbiage, and thanks in advance to whoever answers with helpful info.
