utorrent,zone alarm, vista-thinking outside the box


Recommended Posts

I'm taking a new look at this problem that many people seem to be having...

I've been using zonealarm for the last 3 years, and utorrent for the past 2 in XP...never (AND I DO MEAN NEVER) had a problem at all with utorrent or zone alarm...recently got a new laptop which came with Vista. I was unable to find all the drivers for XP so I'm stuck with Vista. I swear by zone alarm, and utorrent. Both programs do their jobs perfectly with minimal fuss. Now since I've been using Vista utorrent will not close properly. The icon will disappear for the try but the UI will still be on the screen. I cannot close utorrent using the task manager, or pskill.

Here is my question is there anyone here using Vista, zonealarm, and utorrent and are not having a problem???

Also to the mods...I have 2 DMP files that I can upload if you want to take a look at them, both are after utorrent crashed, but still running, if there is any other information that you might need just let me know

any help or ideas are appreciated thanks
