100% CPU usage in


Recommended Posts

same problem here. allready switched back to

i realized that the "quick look server" was running allways on over 100% (quad core cpu). i think uTorrent and quick look server have problems concurrently accessing the files.

searching for quicklook-server and torrent revealed that also Transmission has/had the same problems.

see: http://www.macfixit.com/article.php?story=2007111410154674

hope this helps to find the issue or fix the bug.

btw.: uTorrent is really slow compared to the newest windows versions. a friend of mine also uses uTorrent on the mac and windows and the windows version also has better dl-speeds than his mac version.

I'm using

B. That another possible explanation.
