Utorrent is taking over my connection !!!!

Captain Download

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm a new poster so please take it easy on me. I've been using utorrent for many years now and find it a great app. i've had many years of downloading and love it. recently due to a HD failure I purchased a new PC which came with Vista. (I had previously been using Windows ME followed, for a long, time by XP). I unfortunatly was having a hard time with utorrent crashing all the time and figured out that it was conflicting with Zonealarm. I removed all instances of ZA from the machine including registry entries and now it works fine, however, whenever I'm downloading I cannot seem to surf via IE7 or download any update for any AVC software etc My connecton is completly taken over. Utorrent works fine and downloads perfect but I have to wait 10 minutes or so after I stop Utorrent for my internet connection to work. I'm using version 1.7.5 and will update when I get home. I have limited Up and Down speed and have ports forwarded correctly. Any other similar problem to this that there is a fix for?

Thanks all......

To verify you've limited down and up settings in uTorrent, could you please post your measured online speeds down and up as well as current uTorrent settings -- even just what speed you chose in Speed Guide (CTRL+G) will do if you didn't change anything afterwards.

Utorrent settings (CTRL+G)

Upload limit set to 10kbps

Download limited to 190 kbps

Connection 500

Even when dl'ing at 12kbps - there's no internet, even my poker client disconnects (fails to update). I have a setting in Eset that treats utorrent as a web browser - i read somewhere that this helps. Can't remember where. When I was having difficulty with ZoneAlarm - It was a suggested fix.
