utorrent clashing with real tek audio driver


Recommended Posts

Hey there, has anyone ever had this happen before? I find it really odd. I've never had a problem before with utorrent until I had completely gutted my computer and put a new one together, now it seems I have issues everywhere. I checked with my firewall and all operations are a go. My problems happen to be my audio settings popping up everytime, several times, while I run utorrent. I also happen to have speed issues, but this one is concerning me the most, it happened first so I figured I'd tackle it first.

Here's a screen shot, does anyone even know where to begin with this issue?

I'm sorry to get back to you guys so late. Here's the log, I don't see anything really strange..... but then again, I'm still learning about stuff like this. I suppose I should let you know, the minute I start up uTorrent, my CPU level basically goes to 100. Everything runs really slow, any sounds that are made do the whole lagging mechanical sound. I just wish I knew what was going on. I'm assuming it's all one big problem.

- That unknown file in the LSP chain... Try fixing it with HijackThis, or maybe LSP-Fix

- nVidia nTune running alongside ATI's services...?

- Any chance the last.fm service is interacting weirdly with µTorrent? Can you try killing the process?

- Symantec... if nothing above helps, can you try uninstalling the product (if temporarily) to see if the problem persists without it on the system?

I checked into the LSP chain, even though HiJackThis calls it out, apparently it's really important to hang onto. Nvidia nTune is gone. I killed the LastFM launch helper to see if things would work better. I also disabled Symantec for a little bit. The audio driver didn't come up, but it also didn't really get the chance to. Instantly my system starting lagging out again, I was watching the CPU, it never went above 67%. I'm at a loss for ideas on what else to do here other than a completely fresh install. :/ I figured I'd check back here incase you had anymore ideas before I resort to the reinstall.

If nothing works after that, I'm going to want to rip my hair out ha.

As a last resort before uninstalling, I had gone in and basically just triple (by triple I mean the 1000th time) checked my settings. THE ONLY THING I changed was in my speed settings, I checked the encryption option. I then also deleted every torrent I had. Then restarted. I don't know if it was a stroke of luck or what really, and logically it doesn't make much sense to me, but I haven't had ONE problem since. -insert my bewilderment here- lol :)
