uTorrent causing USB devices to disconnect


Recommended Posts

I was having this weird problem problem in Windows 8.1 that my USB controllers kept disconnecting. I couldn't fix it so I reverted to Windows 7 and everything was fine even after installing and running uTorrent. I got tired of Windows 7 poor performance with my FX-8350 so I switched back to 8.1 in hopes of the problem not occurring again. I've had 8.1 installed for 8 days without problem until I installed uTorrent and ran it. I didn't even realize the problem at the time so I went and bought a 7 port USB 3.0 PCI E card. Then when I was going to a techsupport IRC channel I realized uTorrent may of been the problem and uninstalled and the problem has not occurred since even though all USBs were disconnecting every 5 minutes.
