Internet Explorer stops responding when I do a utorrent Search


Recommended Posts

Can anybody out ther help please?

I have a Laptop running with XP.

I downloaded utorrent as I have before on my other laptop.

When I do a search I get a list of found items but at that point IE stops responding and

I have to use task manager to end it.

I dont have this problem on my other laptop (the one my wife monopolises).

I have scanned for viruses/malware etc and al is ok.

I have AVG anti virus and se AD-Ware SE spyware software.

The same happens with both IE6 and IE7.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hiya Jewish,

Yes I'm using the search box in utorrent. IE is the only browser I have.

'Are you using Ctrl-P -> Advanced --> Bypass.search.redirect ?'

What is that all about?

Sorry but I am not a computer wiz, just a humble home user.

Thanks for any help you can give.

There is a setting in µTorrent.

Open up Preferences in µTorrent with CTRL+P (or click on the menus to get to it).

Choose the Advanced tab at the bottom left.

In the list of Advanced options, find "gui.bypass_search_redirect", click on it to highlight it...set it to "TRUE" and click OK at the bottom.
