utorrent 1.7.7 keeps crashing


Recommended Posts

Hi I am using 1.7.7 stable version and lately its been crashing pretty often, I leave my computer on for downloading and when I come back I see a msg saying that the Utorrent has crashed and a log has been created in (location) and gives three options like send the infomation to developer .. relaunch the application... Ah i am wondering whats happening. Because I been using 1.6 versions and none crashed ever. is there Any bug ? any fix? Please help.

If u need the DMP file please let me know how to open it.. ( I am not sure which application has to be used to view the DMp file)

Thanks a lot

a) get HijackThis from trendsecure.com, run it, view the log, and post the contents here

B) get Process Explorer from sysinternals.com, run it, Ctrl+D (to show the lower DLL pane), select the µTorrent process from the list, Ctrl+S (and save the list somewhere you'll find easily -- like the Desktop), then post the contents of the saved process list in the .txt file here

Also, try reconfiguring µTorrent from scratch (remove settings.dat and settings.dat.old from %appdata%\uTorrent). Dumps can be uploaded to mediafire.com and links posted here.

Hmm, k. Well from the initial description it sounded like it was crashing more often than that.

idle.dll Idle Module Yahoo! Inc. 1.00.0000.0002

idmmkb.dll Internet Download Manager module Tonec Inc. 4.00.0000.0001

are also injected, but I don't believe you'd need to uninstall them. IDM can just be closed, and it looks like the Yahoo Toolbar is responsible for the idle hook. If the Yahoo toolbar is doing any sort of "scanning" for antivirus, spyware, or malware however ... it should be disabled.

if it's disabled and the idle.dll is still in there you can close the hook yourself with process explorer. You see the red "X" in the toolbar? Click utorrent.exe up top, click idle.dll in the DLL pane at the bottom, click the red x and process explorer closes the hook from idle.dll into utorrent.exe

Me three with the same problem. WFIW, I've never had Yahoo! toolbar or anything McAfee on this box. I do have NAV '04 and Google Desktop. The problem only started after I installed the 1.7.7 update and it is random-ish. I've only seen it after being away... it has never popped up when I've been at the keys.

I have the same problem. It really annoys me because I leave uTorrent open when I am sleeping and when I wake up I see that it crashed. I close everything including Kaspersky, Daemon Tools, Pidgin, iTunes and it's services, Nokia PC Suite, Xfire, FRAPS, WampServer, RocketDock, Launchy, ...

I will try turning off UPnP today.

You can't find my old dumps here: http://alicanc.890m.com/utorrent/

Yes I have the same problem 2 nights in the row... No Mcafee, Yahoo or anything like that. The only two things I can think of, was Windows update, and recently installed ICQ, but with out any add ons, shall I go back to 1.6, since I don't know where 1.8 is?
