User-Mapped Section Open


Recommended Posts

I use uTorrent to download episodes from Revision3's website. With any torrent that I try to download I sometimes get an error every so often, and some times I do not. The torrent will load in to uTorrent, start downloading, but at a random time give me this error:

"Error: The requested operation cannot be performed on a file with a user-mapped section open."

I thought that it was because I was using that sector of my hard drive at the time, so what I did was stop using it and went to bed while I was downloading it. Well in the middle of the night it completely stops my download, and then just gives me that error. The thing is, is that if I click Force Start it continues from where it left off before the error with no problems. I have had to do this with almost every torrent I have downloading since I started using uTorrent.

*NOTE* Just because I click Force Start dose not mean it keeps going. It sometimes gives me the exact same error on the same torrent many many many times that if I want the torrent to finish I have to babysit it. It is begging to be an annoyance.

My Specs:

Windows XP SP3 w/ Up to Date Hotfixes

uTorrent 1.8.1 Beta (even without beta I still had this problem on 1.7.7 and 1.8)

In that thread, please...

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

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 there
