Endromada Posted July 6, 2007 Report Share Posted July 6, 2007 uTorrent v 1.6.1I've checked the FAQs, I'm not running any firewalls reported to cause issues (I'm running ZoneAlarm) I also have a clean windows boot (I only open my virus scan, firewall, nVidia control panel (NOT FIREWALL), diskeeper scheduler, utorrent, and windows services at start up)My problem: uTorrent takes it's sweet time performing hash checks, and consistently uses 33%+ of my cpu time, resulting in overall laggy performance at opening/closing programs, etc. Even entering text like I am doing right now is laggy. The letters are iconsistantly appearing 5-6 seconds after I type them.My question: How do I reduce the processor time uTorrent will devour in it's unholy thirst for cpu time, sans setting it to *BelowNormal* or *Low* processor priority in task manager? (doing so has a nasty habit of causing uTorrent to freeze all together.)It really is a bother having to hash check every time I restart my computer, which I often have to more than once daily (I realize it's nessecary to perform the hash checks, and why. (yeah, my computer is a 6 year old dell office pc, with a gig of ram and a pci card slapped in)oh. Please don't tell me having an old, relatively slow processor is the problem.
