Slow browsing + NOD32 fixed

I just updated to NOD32 on my WinXPSP2 box.

The setting has moved here:

Setup : Enter advanced setup... : Web and email : Protocol Filtering : Web and email clients : Excluded applications.

I put a check next to "C:\Program Files\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe" and hit "OK". Once I do this, my browser freeze-up issue goes away.

Ok, so everything was running smoothly on my win7 x64 ultimate machine. I was using Nod32 v4 and utorrent 3.1 and everything was good...

but then, BAM. I had to reinstall windows after SSD upgrade, this time i am running win 7 x64 enterprise, and i installed utorrent 3.1, then used the old setting.

no matter wich version of nod32 i used, i've tried v3, v4 and v5 it slowed down my connection to a halt, no matter the settings and exlusions. Finally tired of it and went with microsoft security essentials. It's waay smoother, but i still get connction errors and slowdowns now and again...WTF?

Any thougts?

The recent update, 3.2 I think it was, killed my connection outright. Had to reboot.

I had been using Utorrent prior to the update with no problems, no slow downs nothing. As soon as it installed and I started a torrent downloading, it died.

Sucks. I liked Utorrent alot.

I have also the problem with slow browsing, but actually it's not slow, it won't even load a page when utorrent is active, I also had an older version of utorrent and when I was downloading, simultaneously uploading, and now, I have 3.1 utorrent, and I don't even have 1kb of upload. My Internet is okay, I don't have any problems, but I don't know why I don't have the same upload I had before. A neighbor of mine has the same Internet provider as I have and he can browse the net and upload thousands of torrents while utorrent is active. Can anyone give me some solutions to fix the problem please?

Signed up to leave this, maybe it helps some of ya. Love nod love utorrent, must have read this thread a 1000 times trying to get to the bottom of the browse and torrent together, gave up a while ago. Just updated to nod antivirus, started utorrent, same old same old, browsing to a stand still almost instantly. Checked the usual nod settings, all good. On the off chance I had a look at windows firewall, was set to exclude uttorent, but only in inbound rules, not in Outbound.

went to outbound rules in windows firewall and did this...

outbound Rules>new rule

rule type = program

program = %ProgramFiles%\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe

action = allow the connection

profile = Domain+Private+Public

name = give it any name you like, mine is called pleasework. :D

Finish = you are done.

waddya know, 14 torrents seeding&leeching, browsing like a boss, no problems at all, cant remember being this happy on the intrawebs for a while :D

You will see the new rule pop up on the right hand side of windows FW, working for me on Nod32 antivirus I'm not much of a geek, and there is probably some imminent and massive danger to my wellbeing with these settings, but for the moment I'm as happy as a pig in sh*t. :lol:


you'll probs need to allow inbound also if its not set.
