uTorrent 2.0 hogs all CPU time


Recommended Posts

Like many others uTorrent 2.0 is hogging all my CPU time and I can't see why! It seems to happen randomly sometimes but I recall that it once happened as soon as I tried to access the WebUI. I disabled WebUI but it still happens randomly. I haven't even downloaded anything for a couple of weeks.

The problems started with 2.0 and won't go away even in build 18296.

Thank you, that did the trick.

For anyone else having this problem: I had turned off the WebUI but the alternate port checkbox was still checked. So I turned on WebUI, unchecked the alternate port checkbox, turned off WebUI, shut down uTorrent and then started it again. Then I enabled WebUI again, with the alternate port as well and now everything is dandy.

So what's the cause of this anyways?
