cooldude2012 Posted October 3, 2011 Report Share Posted October 3, 2011 Hi,Just a few minutes back, I noticed from 'Networx' data monitoring program that some program was transferring data over the Internet at high speeds (190kBps on a 2Mbps connection). By the time I noticed it, almost 400MB was used up. I had absolutely no idea which program was causing the transfer. Task Manager showed uTorrent (2.0) as a running process. I switched off the modem, installed uTorrent 3.0 (why I had 2.0 initially is mentioned at the end of this post), opened up Network Activity in Resource Monitor (perfmon) and switched on the modem to troubleshoot the issue. Found out that uTorrent was the culprit. The interesting thing is this: When I hovered the mouse over uTorrent icon on system tray, it showed ZERO network activity. You can see it in the attached image towards the bottom right. But Resource Monitor shows otherwise (10kBps). How is this possible?Also, when I opened up Task Manager, there were multiple uTorrent processes running. On ending the process tree, Resource Monitor network activity became zero, as expected. Why do I see multiple processes running? Another issue, which I was not bothered about, was the improper working of Scheduler in version 2.0. I had it enabled to work from 2am till 8am, but uTorrent worked as if scheduler was disabled.Image: Resource MonitorThanks in advance.PS:1) The OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit2) I had downgraded uTorrent from 3.0 to 2.0 because ver 3.0 too had multiple running processes in the background.3) I googled for an explanation to this issue, but couldn't find any. I hate to admit that the above issues are the result of some wrong observation on my part as I have been using uTorrent for about 4 years. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
