donmularz Posted July 3, 2014 Report Share Posted July 3, 2014 windows 7 x64, updates are current.utorrent 3.4.2 build 32126isp is cox (has been for years, this problem is local to my machine and has been going on for several months)i use chrome i am using a vpn (privateinternetaccess.com) but only subscribed a few weeks ago, does not interfere with torrents except for some speed penalties. bitdefender antivirus, peerblock, and spybot s&d, all of which i've been using since before the problem started. possibly except for bitdefender but i did uninstall it and the problem persisted without it. basically what happens is i add a torrent, about half the time utorrent will crash after several minutes, sometimes up to an hour or more later, but it seems to always do it while the torrent is still downloading. there is no error message, i only notice it when i try to open utorrent and it's either frozen or the tray icon disappears when i mouse over it. the thing that has me stumped is that all progress will be gone. sometimes when i re-add the torrent it will resume and pick up where it left off, but again this seems to be random. i hate asking for help on this kind of stuff, partially because i fix stuff like this for a living, and partially because i'm generally not very good at it. so please if anyone can help me figure this out i will be extremely grateful, i've been trying to troubleshoot this for nearly 3 months with no luck and i can't seem to find anyone with similar issues as far as losing download progress. edit: i should add that one of the main reasons i've been having difficulty diagnosing and fixing it is the randomness of the crash. i've found it impossible to make it happen on purpose and i've gotten frustrated enough that i caught myself thinking that my computer is consciously screwing with me. hence my plea for assistance.
