utorrent 1.8* crashes


Recommended Posts

Hi I've been using µTorrent ever since it was 65K or so (long time).

The setup I have is a win2003 server with zonealarm running on an athlon xp+ nforce2+nvidia 4200Ti platform.

No firewall software from nVidia has been installed. Protowall, ipFilter.dat, and PG2 are all being used along with blocklist manager.

Ever since I upgraded to the 1.8.* builds uTorrent has been crashing. Most of the time it starts another instance and both processes are live on the system tray. Both do not respond to webui though.

I was thinking it was related to webUI, so I disabled that and even tried getting the latest versions of it. It still kept crashing. The crashing interval is random, usually after 24 hours.

I have a bunch of .dmp files in the uTorrent folder if you need them. Do you know what the problem could be?

I've downgraded to uTorrent 1.7.7 and its stable as a rock again :)

I doubt its malware/spyware as I have run the following scans with 0 hits: Spybot, MalwareBytes,SuperAntiSpyware

I have them both because both of those blockers sometimes crash (rarely), and I want to stay protected always. Strangely both of them do block IPs even though ipfilter.dat is being used :S. Same set of IPs is deployed to all.

Dont know why you guys dont like ZA Pro 6.0 (and earlier), it was the #1 firewall for a long time. I agree the new versions are bloated/buggy and dont work perfectly with vista (not supported on win7).

How come 1.7.7 and prev versions are stable with the same ZA ?
