chris d Posted May 17, 2008 Report Share Posted May 17, 2008 Could someone please advice in regard to uTorrent. I can run this application all day downloading some huge files (in excess of 1GB plus) without any problems and yet (other times) I try to download a file which may only be less than 400MB, I'll be lucky if the download lasts five minutes before my system is locked up solid to the point whereupon I can't even shut down properly. I have noticed (however) that this seems to occur when there are seeds/peers in excess of 1000+ - even though (at the time) the download speed may be very high - yet I'm on a 20MB cable connection? What's most irritating is that I can't even open the Task Manager to see what's causing the problem.Is this a fault of my own making or an issue with the application - is anyone else suffering the same issue? System info:AMD 1.3 GHz Palomino1.5meg SDRAMWindows 2000 SP4.Speed 20MB cable.McAfee Virusscan V7 - yes I know it's legacy but it works perfectly well and without the unnecessary bells and whistles.Zone Alarm Security Suite - correctly set and working fine.Please adviseCheers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
