Dedicated seeding laptop. Utorrent always crashes.


Recommended Posts

I have this laptop that I have been trying to use as a permanent seeding PC, and I have been experience constant crashing with utorrent 1.7.7.

When I first started to use it on the machine it worked alright for a few torrents, then when I tried to queue up about 10 or so torrents together (5 dling at once, the rest seeding) and tried to leave it over night it would crash sometime in that time.

It would crash mainly if I had large (4GB and up) torrents in the dl queue. If I had many torrents of relatively small size (150mbish) it would dl fine.

It did this several times without fail. I thought it might have been some preexisting spyware/malware on the machine (as it was 2nd hand to me) so I decided to format with a clean SP2 install.

This is where I am now. I have a clean install with only utorrent and Comodo firewall installed (it is set to fully allow all UT traffic) and I still have the same problem (with many large files in a DL queue it crashes). So I have now tried to limit the max torrents DLing to 2. This worked for one night, but now it crashed again.

The only other thing I can think of that might be causing it is that the lappy has only 512 ram, but I would think that shouldn't matter as after all it is u(micro)torrent.

I have all my Data on an external drive connected via USB. It crashed before I hooked this up also (I hooked it up as the internal HDD is too small).

Here is a HJT log, PE log and my crash dumps:

Indeed, if it's crashing due to UPnP, then it probably needs to be fixed. Do you have any crash dumps in %appdata%\uTorrent, or in your µTorrent executable's directory? If so, can you upload them to some site (like mediafire.com or savefile.com)?
