uTorrent freezing computer


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Lately, uTorrent 1.8.4 has started to freeze my entire system upon downloading. Scanned computer for viruses, adware, spyware. Nothing. Cleaned registry and old compressed files. Defragged as well. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Freeze would occur when uTorrent is loaded and is leeching/seeding. In a matter of minutes, system would lock up, Ctrl+Alt+Del will not work. Nums Lock, Caps Lock frozen, only a hard reboot will solve the problem.

I have since updated BIOS, mobo drivers, graphics drivers, any critical windows updates (with the exception of SP3)

As for networking, you mean drivers for my router? My D-Link AirPlus ExtremeG DWL-G132 has since been discontinued, but I have updated the last available driver provided by the company site.

This system I built last year.

Hm, it's not uncommon for hardware issues to be exacerbated by µTorrent. Network cards for example tend to cause BSOD's when the drivers suck, and appear/become more frequent when being taxed. Do you happen to have any files in C:\Windows\Minidump ?

Networking drivers as in the NIC drivers for the computer. You could also try conservative settings:
