onlyonerem Posted March 9, 2008 Report Share Posted March 9, 2008 My computer is a Toshiba Satellite A135, with Windows Vista Home Premium and two 1GB RAM chips. My anti-virus is AVG free. My other security programs are Ad-Aware 2007, Spybot Search and Destroy, CCleaner, and ZoneAlarm.I've already run HijackThis and LSP-Fix. Neither helped.This is my problem.I'll download and start a torrent up, utorrent will load fine and begin downloading. I'll minimize the program to the tray icon and go on about my internet business. I'll load a music program like Winamp or try to watch something on Windows Media Player and find that the sound in choppy, staticy, or skipping. So I look to my CPU usage and find I'm running at full capacity, which I wasn't before. So, I close my music or video program and maximize utorrent to see what the problem is. Everything seems fine. But, just for kicks, I try to close utorrent, to see if that's what's taking up all my CPU. Upon doing so, utorrent freezes and claims it's not responding. So I go through the steps of closing a non-responsive program, the window disappears and my CPU usage goes down. So, I attempt to restart utorrent. I get a pop-up saying that the process is already running, but not responsive. I open my task manager and find the utorrent process, right click, and choose to end it. I get no pop-up or anything, but the process does not disappear from the list.At this time, I have to completely restart my computer, which takes twice as long as when I restart after an update when utorrent has not been running. Once I'm fully restarted, I try utorrent again and the cycle repeats itself.I have tried other BitTorrent programs such as the original BitTorrent, BitComet, and Azureus, all with the same effect.This started when I updated to uTorrent 1.7.5. I have updated each time a new release is available, hoping for a fix, but so far, to no avail.So that's my issue, can anyone help? I've tried to be as detailed about what's happening as possible.
