uTorrent bluescreens my PC for the last 6 months

I've been using UT for years, but over the last 6 months or so, I find that after about 30 to 60 minutes of use, my PC bluescreens.


I'm not a techie in the world of torrenting, but it seems to have only been since Ver 3.4.2 arrived.  Older versions were fine.


I could delay the crash by closing all other programs, but it would still happen eventually.


When I reboot I get the standard Windows message that the PC shut down unexpectedly and opening it gives me this - 


Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
  OS Version: 6.1.7601.
  Locale ID: 2057

  BCP3: 00000000
  BCP4: 94C7999F
  OS Version: 6_1_7601

I'm not sure how to open the .dmp file and I can't attach it, so any advice as to how to open it and stick it on here would be appreciated.
The .xml file is doesn't seem to be on the PC any more
In the meantime, I've had to revert to 3.1.2 and this is working fine.
Any ideas what is happening and what I could do?

Yes, I agree abut the network adaptor drivers, because it mentions something about that on the blue screen before - wlanGZG.sys and the address and base number.


HOWEVER, since reverting to uTorrent 3.1.2 and been using it for over 24 hours without a hitch, it seems to me that there's some glitch or at least something awry with 3.4.2 and all its many variants.


What can I do about the network adaptor drivers?  They've all been updated to the latest versions.


And why has this problem only started with UT 3.4.2 and no other version?


Easiest answer - stay with 3.1.2 and uncheck auto-update ...


BUT UT should really release new versions that actually work properly too ...
