nicknefarious Posted May 20, 2008 Report Share Posted May 20, 2008 Hi all, I have a few questions and am hoping someone has the time to help me out here. I am running Vista Ultimate, uTorrent 1.7.7 and connect through a Motorola Cable Modem and a TP-Link WR541G wireless router and am also running Zone Alarm's latest Internet Security Suite as AV and Firewall. Firstly I have tried everything to get the connection to turn green but it remains yellow. My torrents are still reasonably quick, but would really like full speed. I have forwarded the ports in the router as suggested at www.portforward.com and entered exceptions and expert rules in the firewall in Zone Alarm, I'm not sure what else to do. When I check the ports using portforward's tool it says the port is closed. Any suggestions or ideas?Secondly my UTorrent quite often either freezes, slows the rest of the PC down to a virtual standstill and when I try to kill the process in task manager I cannot. Even when I shut the computer down it takes an eternity to shut down because of this. This problem doesn't occur if I haven't been running UTorrent - but it did also occur when I tried using FlashGet for torrents. When I investigate a little further I usually find the UTorrent process is chewing up a lot of memory... far more than usual.Thirdly every time I start UTorrent it checks all the files already downloaded. This takes forever and is unneccessary. How do I stop this from happening?A few torrents I am downloading at the moment also seem to be returning a large number of Hash Fails. When I say large number, I am used to none where I am now getting a couple of hash fails an hour.I look forward to, and really appreciate any help or feedback anyone can give.Cheers,Nick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
