Destne Posted August 24, 2008 Report Share Posted August 24, 2008 I have had a problem with uT1.8 on Vista HP SP1 - uT was not finding many peers. I could validate this as I have another PC, XP SP2 on the same network using same router, same ISP. For the same torrent, the XP box would find 30 peers, the Vista box 3 or 4.I patched TCPIP.sys. Checked every uT config between the 2 machines. Switched their network cables. Reset firewall. Checked FAQ's. You name it.In the end a post from NatPatBen on the forum suggested removing settings.dat, settings.dat.old in users\[username]\appdata\roaming\utorrent - this needs to be unhidden to gain access. For good measure I deleted both the settings files from program files\utorrent as well.Number of seeds went from 3 or 4 up to 35.I don't claim this is a scientific answer - would love to know why this fixed it - but happy that it did. I hope I'm not covering old ground but this should probably be in the "first things to try" category for troubleshooting and speed issues sections of the forum, especially as Vista seems to produce plenty of other problems e.g. bloody 4226 events . Only downside was having to reload all my torrents. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
