Rooster44uk Posted June 27, 2007 Report Share Posted June 27, 2007 Hi I'm new to bittorrent so some help is greatly appreciated.I installed uTorrent because it was supposed to have minimal effect on the computer. Starting uTorrent caused no problem but once I started downloading my pc speed was reduced to a crawl. uTorrent continued to work great but I was unable to use the pc for anything else. Even starting something like task manager took around 10 minutes before anything happened. I tried to reduce the cache memory from automatic to 12meg but it made little difference. I've tried limiting the down load speed too. I'm using a medium speed braodband connection.As far as I am aware my pc, albeit a few years old, is well within spec.As I said all help will be greatly appreciated.CheersPC Spec:AMD Athlon XP 1900+ 1.61GHz768MB RamOperating system Windows XP60GB hard DriveI use:AVG internet securitySygate firewallWindows Defendernot too sure what other info to give.
