µTorrent 2.2 Build 23703 fails to terminate


Recommended Posts

After a CHKDSK /R the program seems to function properly, please delete this post.

µTorrent 2.2 build 23703

I've had a very troublesome problem with this build of µTorrent on Windows XP sp3. When the application is exited, it remains in the task list, and any attempt to force kill the process fails. The only way I have found to end the program (without a hard reboot since even initiating a shutdown won't stop the program) is by disabling the network device, or doing anything to stop traffic on the device. At that point µTorrent WILL finally shut down. I can only hope that this bug will get fixed, or I'll revert to the last stable version.

If anyone has an idea what might be causing the problem, please, speak up.

I tried seatools enterprise on my old seagate baracuda. It's a 10+ year old drive and seatools enterprise can't find it, so it looks like my foul. I'll edit when i find the problem.

- strange that this is the only application in half a year that has shown any problems on this disk. must be related to the excessive writing.

would saving the utorrent settings before closing the network connection avoid the future problems?
