Utorrent and Nod32 crashing PC


Recommended Posts

Im running Winxp sp3, using Utorrent ver. 1.8.4 and Nod32 Ver.4. I have already unchecked Utorrent from Nod32 IMON.. When I'm running uTorrent and downloading files, nod32's "ekrn.exe" process suddenly goes up, Utorrent becomes unresponsive as well as everything else and I have to hard reset my PC.

Heres my Hijack log:

These are the non-Microsoft DLLs I see from Process Explorer:

AM30400.dll Ad Muncher Hook DLL Murray Hurps Corp Pty Ltd

iprepair.dll IconPackager Repair Module Stardock.net, Inc

LgMsgHk.dll Logitech Message Hook Library Logitech Inc.

LgWndHk.dll Logitech Call Window Hook Library Logitech Inc.

YzToolBar.dll Y'z ToolBar DLL

Logitech is unlikely to be a problem...but the other 3 might be. :(
